No pay raise is the worst part of the recession, say more than a quarter of administrative professionals, while slightly less (21%) say their workload has increased, according to a new survey from the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP).
The stress of seeing co-workers downsized is the hardest part for 16% of admins, while receiving a pay cut was cited by 7%.
Even with stressful conditions and lower pay, most of those surveyed will not seek new employment when the recession eases and job prospects improve. Only 21% say they’d leave their job and find a new position when conditions improve, with 67% indicating they would stay where they are.
One reason they’ll stick around is that it’s part of an admin’s work ethic, says Susan Fenner, education and professional development manager at IAAP.
“As a group, they are used to stepping up to the plate,” says Fenner.
