A survey released by Manpower notes changes in the role of administrative assistants over the past five to 10 years. Half of the employers surveyed reported they would find the task of replacing a good administrative assistant to be “somewhat difficult,” while 35% said replacing a good admin would be “challenging.”

The evolution of the admin’s role is growing; employers say a contemporary administrative assistant’s role includes presentation assembly, client communication, vendor management, metrics reporting and team engagement.
