Most of your peers say they are. A recent Staples survey revealed the majority of administrative professionals (61% vs. 18%) say they are happier than their bosses. Respondents also say admins boost employee morale and are better team players than their bosses.

Who holds the most power in the office? The boss wins on this one but second in command is the admin, ahead of the chief financial officer and HR director.

Highlights from the survey reveal:

  70%    don’t have a gender ­preference for a boss

  44%    of workers prefer a female admin over a male admin (11%)

  41%    also serve as HR director

  50%    serve as an accountant

  47%    describe their boss’s technology skills as ­average, bad or horrible

And the winner of this year’s favorite fictional admin is Pam Halpert of “The Office.”

What talk show host would they most like to work for? Ellen Degeneres, followed by Jimmy Fallon or Jimmy Kimmel.
