Assistants should make use of technology to support their work. This is especially true of Assistants working in a fast-paced environment.
There are many project management and collaboration tools that Assistants can use to manage their tasks and prioritise their deadlines.
But it doesn’t stop there.
Make use of technology to help automate your administrative tasks.
This includes travel management, expenses, minute-taking, and event planning, to name just a few.
Once you’ve decided on the tools, you want to introduce to your workflow. Champion that tool, use all of its features and make sure that you tell your Executive and your team. They might find it helpful too!
Lastly, once you use technology to support your role, think of the work you can take on, that pushes the business forward. The strategic work.
