Training is not an option anymore.
In this 3-part series, Bonnie Low-Kramen and Vickie Sokol Evans take a deep dive into the slippery subject of assistant training. Historically, the 10 million Executive Assistants, Personal Assistants, and general support staff in the United States have not been offered specific training relevant to their roles. For too long, training was not considered an important investment to be made because the need did not appear to be pressing. However, since the financial meltdown of 2008, the world and the workplace has changed in a seismic way. In our demanding 24/7, non-stop instant access global workplace of 2018, too many assistants are still fighting for training dollars and this education gap is hurting companies.
In Part 1, Bonnie and Vickie explore where we are with training and why and how we got here.
Spoiler Alert: Training is no longer an option and training budgets for assistants are now a global trend as leaders have begun to clearly see the ROI. Executives need to have highly skilled assistants and that only happens when assistants receive training specific to their role. It is definitely not one-size-fits-all.
