Finding the right administrative team requires focused attention and an in-depth search. Hire the best talent in the administrative field with us.

Hiring a Front Office Coordinator

The role of a Front Office Coordinator is crucial. These individuals are the first point of contact for the entire office and serve as external facing representatives for the company. This role often supports many teams and, when something goes wrong, can provide assistance and resources in a variety of areas.  Making intentional hires in this department is critical to the success of your business because of the central role that these individuals play in the office. A strong Front Office Coordinator demonstrates the values of the brand to all guests, callers, and partners in the office. They are the first representation of the company that many visitors will interact with and the individuals in these roles must have a level of professionalism that reflects the standards and values of the brand. The Front Office Coordinator also plays a major role in curating the company culture. All teams interact with this department, and a good Front Office Coordinator can establish relationships across the office with ease.  

Hiring an Executive Assistant

Once thought of as a gatekeeper, the Executive Assistant is now recognized as a true extension of the CEO and retains many of the responsibilities and relationships of the leadership team. An Executive Assistant must be prepared and ready for anything at any time. The most successful individuals are dynamic, resourceful, and always flexible enough to adapt to the situation at hand.  The Executive Assistant takes on many business functions and needs to understand the goals and direction of the company. In many cases, this individual can hold a level of responsibility for questions and decisions in the absence of the executive that they support. They must be aligned with the company’s leadership and be able to adopt the mindset of their executives.  

Hiring a Human Resources Team

One of the most important parts of building a strong administrative team is the Human Resources team. HR sets the tone for the office. From the HR Coordinator to the Human Resources Director, the Human Resources team ensures that the company is running smoothly and that all functions are occurring as they should. The HR team defines and demonstrates the company culture. Hiring the right HR team is crucial as they often lead from within and are responsible for keeping a pulse on the mood and morale of the office.  Similarly to HR, it is just as important to find the right team of Recruiters of Talent Acquisition Specialists to build out the rest of the company. This team finds, interviews, and hires new employees and is usually the first impression that new employees have of the company’s structure. Investing in your Human Resources and Talent Acquisition teams is critical to creating a company culture that both accomplishes business goals and retains employees for the long run.
