A huge thank you to everyone that took the time to complete this years Industry Snapshot and Practically Perfect PA survey. We had just over 500 responses, which is a huge increase from last year’s results. We are working our way through all of the information you gave us, but I thought today I would share a little bit more about you guys – the Practically Perfect PA readers! Here is a quick breakdown of our reader demographics and some of your thoughts on the industry.
98% are female with an average age of 25-39 and are mostly EAs
60% of readers work in the private sector, 90% are permanently employed
28% support the CEO of their organisation and 56% support their Exec Team
62% of Executives make business decisions based on their assistant's advice
69% of assistants screen calls on behalf of their Executives
72% of assistants make daily decisions on a wide range of business services
We will be exploring more of the survey results in the coming weeks and we will be publishing a special newsletter with all of the information and comments you have given us, so do keep an eye out for all of that!
