Thanks for Standing Together this Admin appreciation day

We had a great time celebrating Admin Appreciation Day. Here at PSA we ran a couple of events to highlight the day

In Wellington and Auckland we gave out jelly beans and thank you cards and it was great to see the smiling faces of people and many who commented on what a great day it was to be celebrating on the back of the Equal Pay win.

Our very own president Janet Quigley celebrated the day with her Admin staff from the Canterbury District Health Board. Janet gave her two admin staff a card, some roses and held a special morning tea for them. They then invited their neighbors from Southlink to join in the celebrations.

 And lastly the winners of our competition. We asked people to Stand together for Admin and celebrate this important day by profiling their Admin Heroes.

We got this great entry from Adrienne Gray from the Ministry for Vulnerable Children, Oranga Tamariki. Adrienne is a Social Work Resource Assistant for Ngaruawahia and Vehicle Administrator. Adrienne is systems focused, a real problem solver who likes chocolate biscuits at morning tea. She organised the celebration for her and her team and this is what she had to say about the amazing administrors she works with
