Providing your admin team the right tools to do the job is important.
I see this a lot; admin personnel are often provided second-rate equipment and the most basic of programs because the business they work for does not place a lot of importance on their roles after all, they are the worker bees, not the decision makers, they are seen but not heard. Simply seating a team member at a desk with a computer and phone is not enough in 2012. If you expect your team to produce quality work that will provide you a professional edge and show your business in the best possible light, then don’t give them Window’s 3.1. Okay, so that was slightly melodramatic, but you get my drift!!
By asking your team to work with second-rate products or tools, will result in second-rate work. Not because of the limitations of your team but because of the limitations of the tools you have provided them. It is an investment you must be prepared to make.
Investing in the right tools for the right job, will allow your team to show you and your business in the best light.
