Office management is a profession that involves improving overall efficiency and productivity within an office.

It’s vital for helping teams solve problems and resolving potential conflicts. Oversight is necessary for monitoring the performance and progress of employees, as well as the efficiency of completed projects. Not all office managers are the same, however. For example, a medical office manager is a health-care professional who oversees day-to-day office activities to ensure quality and cost-effective care for patients. A business office manager oversees secretarial functions and reports to senior management. What Does an Office Manager Do?

Ensuring that employees follow all safety, security, and record-keeping guidelines. Recommending policy changes and new procedures that improve office functions.

And these days, a great office manager has more opportunities for advancement than ever before. “It used to be just about maintaining the physical space—making sure employees have desks and chairs, for example,” says Maria Dunn, Head of People at office management platform Managed by Q. “Now, office managers are taking more responsibility for the employee experience as a whole and thinking about ways to make the office more productive and engaged.” If you’re currently working as an office manager (or thinking about taking a job as one!), consider your position the foundation of a long-lasting career—one that offers plenty of growth opportunities, whether it’s adding additional responsibilities to a current role, growing and leading a team of your own, or moving from a small company to a larger organization. Here are some tips to help set you up for success. 1. Figure Out Your Passion. An office manager is sort of a jack-of-all-trades, offering a helpful hand in many parts of the business, from human resources to finance to IT. If you find yourself drawn to one particular area, make a point to learn everything you can about it. “My office manager is interested in facilities management and is constantly looking at what’s going on within the building—like if anything needs fixing or if construction needs to be done,” Dunn says. “Someone like her would also benefit from connecting with an experienced facilities manager. Having a mentor you can go to with questions is really important.” Adding responsibilities that fall under human resources is another common path, especially in a start-up environment in which office managers often play a larger role in the “people and culture” aspects of an office. “If you realize that you really like helping people, HR is a natural fit,” Dunn says. Others, she adds, may discover they’re more inclined to grow their skill set in payroll or billing, which is more tactical and not as employee-facing.

Office managers are typically at the center of it all, and have a good grasp of company culture, IT issues, and employee satisfaction. It also means they are privy to lots of information—and gossip—from many different teams. A smart office manager can use this position for good, Dunn points out. If, for example, you hear a rumor going around based on misinterpreted information or that certain employees are unhappy about something going on at the office, Dunn suggests talking to them and asking for feedback. “From there, the office manager can take it to their manager or other leadership, who can then clear the air with correct information,” she says. Dunn also recommends establishing relationships with decision makers even before you have something to bring to their attention. “Assuming the leadership team is approachable, I would take it upon yourself to set up a meeting or go to office hours to say that you care about the company and ask if there is a way to make suggestions or submit ideas,” she says. “It shows you’re passionate about making the office the best place to work.” If management does not have an open-door policy, consider talking to their executive assistant, who may have some insight on how best to get your foot in the door. 3. Say Yes to Everything. As someone who has contact with many different higher-ups, an office manager may often be asked to work on side projects in addition to their everyday duties. When this happens, Dunn advises, “Say yes to everything. Additional projects, which can be completed during down time, are a great way to learn or get exposed to a different part of the business.” 4. Don’t Be Afraid to Speak Up. But you don’t need to wait for the extra work to come to you. In fact, being vocal and asking to get involved in additional projects is a surefire way to attract the attention of those in leadership roles and earn their trust. It’s a strategy that worked well for Gabby Goldstein when she was the Theatre Operations Receptionist/Assistant for New York’s The Shubert Organization. “When I was fielding calls for some of the VPs, I would always say, ‘Please let me know if I can help with anything else,’” she says. “Anytime you’re interacting with someone who might be able to assist you, make it clear you’re ambitious and looking to grow.” In addition, Dunn stresses the importance of asking questions in order to get to know the business. “It seems obvious, but it’s surprising how many people in administrative roles don’t truly understand the business—how it works, who are the clients, how they make money,” she says. “Ask to go to meetings or set up time with leadership to ask them questions. Put yourself out there.” 5. Recognize—and Hone—Transferable Skills. Office manager positions require both hard and soft skills that can make you exceptionally qualified for whatever comes next. For Goldstein, answering phone calls from dissatisfied customers as a receptionist is a task that serves her well today in her current role of Theatre Operations Coordinator. “I would take the complaints, pass them along to my superior, and then get back in touch to deliver the solution to the issue,” she says. “I still deal with customer service a lot, only now I’m making the decisions about how to handle the problems.” One skill that Dunn suggests focusing on is the ability to say no to low-priority asks. “As an office manager, there are so many requests that come in and it can be overwhelming,” she says. “It’s important to not only say no, but also to learn how to explain why you’re saying it and manage the expectations of employees.” This skill will come in handy the more responsibilities you take on. It’s also crucial to be open-minded and understand that good ideas can come from anyone. “I once had an office manager who would only execute her own ideas,” Dunn recalls. “Especially when you’re organizing events or outings, it’s important to recognize that people like different things.” 6. Never Stop Learning. Whether it’s applying for a fellowship in your particular industry, becoming a member of a professional organization, or taking a class in a topic of interest, there’s no wrong way to approach professional development. Some companies even provide opportunities in-house. Take Managed by Q, which promotes continuous learning through a number of initiatives like on-site trainings, a speaker series, and learning days that allow employees to miss work to read a book or attend a seminar. “Any type of learning in the function you’re interested in is key,” Dunn says.

There’s a path to a flourishing Office Manager career, whether you’re starting your career from scratch or transitioning from the role of Executive Assistant or Office Coordinator. Here are some tips to get you started no matter where you are in your career. Start flexing your listening skills . Part of an Office Manager’s unofficial skill set involves providing workplace therapy from time to time. Employees who’ve started building their muscles by learning to listen to everyone they see will find this particular duty easier to handle when the time comes to take it more easily. Tip: Want to know the easiest way to get people to open up? Smile and make eye contact with everyone. The first step toward becoming a master listener is becoming that approachable person everyone opens up to. If your career is brand new… Start talking to everyone about anything. Ask open-ended questions to get people sharing. What’s keeping you busy lately? What are you most excited to work on this week and this year? Be curious, ask questions, and pay attention to everything people say. The more you do this, the easier it will be to learn exactly what questions to ask and figure out exactly what people need to hear in certain situations. If you’re hoping to switch roles… If you’ve been around the office a few times, then focus on making your already established listening skills as sharp as possible. Your goal is get people to see you as an “unofficial office therapist” and trusted confidante before you even step into an OM role. To sharpen your emotionally intelligent office therapist skills, throw out your basic definition of listening. You can listen carefully to someone and still be focused only on what you want to say next. Instead, focus on both listening and reacting accordingly. As someone speaks, think about how they might be feeling. What might they want to hear to feel better? Validate your assumptions by asking questions before you deliver your thoughtful response.   Jump in to solve problems, even if they don’t have anything to do with your regular duties . When it comes to office problems, most employees turn a blind, and rightly so; they have too many other things to do and too many deadlines looming to dive into the problems that spring up on any given day at the office. However, when you’re an Office Manager, every problem—from the mess in the conference room to the error in the payroll report—falls under your purview. OM hopefuls should get used to seeing all office problems as their own. This will help them get used to taking on everything that comes their way, and it will also help them build the problem-solving skills they need to resolve issues. Tip: Some experts use the IDEAL model (and acronym) to approach any problem. Here are the steps: Identify the problem Define the context Explore and evaluate solutions Act Look back to see what worked   If your career is brand new… Be on the lookout for problems in all areas and aspects of the job. When you’re just starting out, you’ll want to learn how to handle as diverse a range of problems as possible. If you’re hoping to switch roles… What potential problems leave you feeling the least confident? Seek out those problems to round out your problem-solving skills. You need to be ready for anything as an Office Manager, so diversifying your competencies should be a priority if you’re switching roles and used to only dealing with a narrow range of issues.

Facilities managers ensure that buildings meet the needs of the people using them, and perform duties such as overseeing maintenance staff and making sure that buildings meet safety codes. Records and information managers often work with executives and technical staff to maintain physical and digital records for an organization. How to Become an Office Manager. Many office managers hold an associate degree, while others may qualify for entry-level employment with a postsecondary certificate in office administration or a related field. However, employers increasingly prefer to hire office managers with a bachelor's degree in business, information management, facilities management, or a related field. Though not required, office managers may pursue professional certification to advance their careers. Examples include becoming a certified facility manager through the International Facility Management Association or a certified records manager through the Institute of Certified Records Managers. These certifications demonstrate advanced skills and expertise to potential employers. Prospective office management students should look for accredited programs, which indicates that a program meets high-quality education standards. Business programs may receive specialized accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) or the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). While AACSB accredits bachelor's degrees in business and higher, ACBSP is the only accreditor of associate-level business programs. Certificate Programs. Aspiring office managers can enroll in a business certificate program through a vocational school, community college, or four-year university. Schools typically offer certificates in fields like business administration, business management, and facilities management. Certificates typically take two years of full-time study to complete, though some programs offer flexible online and/or accelerated options that allow students to graduate faster. Certificate programs typically explore core business and leadership topics including budgeting, project management, human resources, conflict management, and contracting and procurement. A certificate in facilities management or another specialized discipline may require additional courses on topics like operations and maintenance, strategic planning, and risk and continuity in business. Associate Degree Programs. Many employers hire office managers with an associate degree and work experience in management. Some general business programs offer concentrations tailored to a student's career goals, such as small business or office management, while others offer full degrees in areas like office management, office administration, and business administration. Most associate degrees comprise around 60 credits and take two years of full-time study to complete. Associate programs include general education courses on topics like English and math in addition to major-specific courses on topics like finance, marketing, and leadership. Bachelor's Degree Programs. A bachelor's degree in business or a related field is the most common educational requirement for office managers. Generally, bachelor's degrees require students to complete 120 credits, including general education, core business, and concentration coursework. Depending on the school, students may major in office management or office administration, or pursue a general business bachelor's degree with a concentration in office management. Most bachelor's degrees in office management require students to complete an internship and complete the degree with a strategic management seminar course. Professional Licensure and Certification. While not required, professional certification can help boost candidates' competitiveness in the job market. Organizations like the International Facility Management Association and the Institute of Certified Records Managers offer certified facility manager and certified records manager credentials, respectively. Other organizations award specialized certifications in areas such as medical records management, legal management, and property administration.

As an office manager, you want to make sure everything is running smoothly, from the day-to-day responsibilities of everyone in the office to managing a small administrative staff, your role is pretty important. Office managers typically work a normal schedule of 40 hours a week. This is a plus as it's definitely nothing crazy like other management positions when it comes to your schedule. While leaving the office after 8 hours each day seems glamorous, it's not all daffodils and daisies. In fact, office managers tend to be under a lot of stress, most of the time.

There’s no doubt about it. The role was already beginning to shift before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. However, upon returning to the physical office or virtual office, the role of the office manager is evolving.   Office Managers are no longer there to make sure people wash their dishes after lunch, to buy office supplies, or to fix the broken printer. They are now essential for employee happiness, safety, retention, and more.  This article will explore the qualities, skills, and tools that a great office manager needs to excel in their role this year and beyond.  How to become a Great Office Manager . Often referred to as office administrators, office coordinators, or office operations managers, these professionals are often the first point of contact for anyone in or out of the company. Their responsibilities vary drastically, from building a great work environment to helping onboard a new hire to acting as executive assistants.  That’s why an office manager’s workload piles up fast. Along with keeping the office space functional and dynamic, they also need to manage staff movements, travel, expectations, the list goes on. There’s a mountain of expectation on an office manager’s role, and many employees have their different ideas of what an office manager should actually do.  Becoming an office manager is highly rewarding, not only by fulfilling people’s expectations of you but exceeding them. You can hold yourself accountable for, and become a key contributor to, the success of a business and its employees.  Setting clear expectations to become a good office manager. 1. Be the most organized person in the company. Organizational and time management skills are at the top of the list and for a good reason. It’s no longer just about creating a new filing system. An office manager needs to know everyone’s schedule, as well as their own. The role requires juggling co-workers, 3rd party suppliers, long-term business plans, as well as day-to-day operations. If organizational skills aren’t there, work will pile up fast. 2. Be a great communicator . You need strong communication skills to thrive in an office management role. It helps to avoid mistakes, resolve conflicts, and give clear directions. An office manager is one of the few roles within a company that has communication with absolutely everyone, from new employees to the C-level executives. Make sure you’re an excellent communicator, and it will make the role a whole lot easier.  3. Be innovative at problem-solving . The company knowledge that an office manager accumulates over the years is unrivaled. They help a business through its most challenging times, and it all comes down to excellent problem-solving qualities. The longer you’re in the position, the more you’ll find you are being turned to from all seniority levels for your advice on challenging employee situations. Problem-solving doesn’t stop there though. An office manager will often be tasked with the responsibility to make something happen with little or no budget. The role requires you to be innovative with the resources you have and make things happen regardless of the problems you may face.  4. Be empathetic. Every office manager needs to be able to understand and empathize with all team members. As a core part of the team with a good overview of everyone’s working situations, an office manager is often the voice for a large majority of employees. You’ll need to be able to lead with empathy and charisma to make sure everyone is heard and understood.  An office manager will often find themselves on wellness or positive initiative committees. They’ll need to be able to take the reins on empathetic projects, applying a business mind with a kind heart, and managing expectations alongside realities.    Keep learning to become a better office manager . 5. Develop your negotiation skills. An office management position comes with a certain amount of negotiation involved. You’ll be responsible for a budget to keep the day-to-day office ticking over; as well as larger budgets for company events, conferences, and more in your daily routine. It’s up to the office manager to make the most of a budget and maximize what the business can get for the money it has. Negotiation skills will also come in the form of peace-keeping. A diverse business comes with diverse personalities and it’s not uncommon for people to clash heads from time-to-time. These confrontations often fall on human resources and the office manager to resolve and find a peaceful solution that fits everyone.  6. Always work on your business knowledge . Whether it is budgeting skills, financial planning, recruitment strategies, or management theory, these skills will put you in a position to advance quickly. The modern office manager can have a lot of contact with senior management, having some financial or business know-how in your back pocket will help you get your ideas implemented and improve your general efficiency. 7. A little legal knowledge goes a long way. Office managers are often responsible for dealing with external suppliers or office contracts solely on their own. It’s handy to be able to deal with these contracts with some legal knowledge. You’ll be better equipped to understand the small print, when or how the contract can end, and how the business can maximize results with its spend.  8. Understand emotional intelligence . Having great interpersonal skills is critical in being able to manage and be managed within a team. Harnessing it massively helps your people skills and ensures that your team or teams have the best chance of success. It also helps to have a positive attitude that makes people feel comfortable to speak to you about anything.  It’s been found that companies that harness emotional intelligence tend to have better customer loyalty and higher employee engagement rates, which leads to greater success for the business. By embarking on an emotional intelligence course, you’re better equipped to connect with employees and harness emotions for greater productivity.  Tools to master to be a successful office manager . 9. Become an excel wizard. Office managers are responsible for data entry and storage, administrative and managerial support, accounting, budgeting, data analysis, research, reporting, and forecasting. The list is extensive and doesn’t end there.  Excel will become an office manager’s best friend, but you need to be able to use it to its fullest potential. There’s no use having a basic knowledge of excel. Learn how to format and make the most of the tool and, in turn, make the role (and your workday) easier. Being an Excel wizard definitely needs to form part of your skillset.  10. Learn bookkeeping software . Office managers often have a budget to look after and can be tasked with supporting other departments in looking after their numbers too. The role can also be responsible for setting up company-wide processes to ensure departments are keeping track of their budgets in a way that is understood by everyone.  The good news is that there’s plenty of bookkeeping software available. It will be down to the office manager to find and onboard the software that’s the best fit for the company. 11. Use project management software. The same can be said for project management software. Whether it’s team-building days, town halls, new software integrations, there will always be projects to manage in running a business. These projects often fall into the hands of the office manager.  Master project management software that you can introduce with the role. Keep track of tasks, people, and ensure that any project assigned is completed as efficiently as possible. 12. Become a travel management guru. Phoning up a corporate travel agent is now a little old school, and expensive for the company. Also, using Skyscanner or Kayak doesn’t give employees the support they need in the journey. Train yourself up on travel management software and impress senior management with your budget control and time efficiency. Most travel software lets you digitize your travel policy to automate your company’s rules around spend and travel.

                            [body] => It's no secret that office managers are the backbone of any high functioning office. Many companies depend on their office managers to preserve a good quality of life and productivity. Because the job requires patience, office skills, leadership ability, and a talent for working under pressure, sometimes a great office manager can be hard to find. Take Debra Leonard-Porch for example. Debra has been an administrative professional for nearly 40 years and is currently the office manager of Incapital Holdings in Chicago. Debra knows that the first step to becoming a great office manager is taking yourself and your position seriously: "My philosophy has always been, 'I apply for my job every day'. I come in to apply for my job because it could easily go to someone else. They can get someone younger. They can get someone cheaper. They can get someone with a better education, but they will never find anybody who will work as hard as I do." Read on for our guide to office manager skills, training, and tips, and you'll join the office manager greats like Debra in no time. What Is an Office Manager? When we talk about office managers, we are really talking about what makes an office efficient. Office managers have a variety of responsibilities depending on the needs of their company, but all office managers are in charge of the planning, coordinating, and controlling of office activities, as well as being mindful of government control, labor laws, and employee satisfaction. Depending on the field, there can be a variety of office management jobs, however, the basic duties of these managers are quite similar. Besides supervising the smooth running of a company's administration, making sure that needed supplies are provided and that office equipment is in working order, office managers can sometimes also hire, fire, train, and promote employees. Office Manager Skills. As an office manager, you'll be responsible for processes, procedures, documentation, communication, supervising, training, and administration. If that sounds like a lot of responsibility, that is because it is. In order to make sure the office is functioning at its best, you must be well versed in these office management skills. Planning skills. Planning should come naturally for office managers. Your planning responsibilities will range from scheduling office meetings to delegating responsibilities. From planning long term business operations to executing everyday tasks efficiently, organized planning is a key skill any great office manager should have. Administrative skills. For an office manager, administrative skills should come as second nature. Before you rose to your position as office manager there is a good chance you'll have held other administrative positions. In these positions, you would have cultivated a baseline of administrative skills which will only develop as you adapt to your new role of office manager. You'll be responsible for various administrative tasks in the organization, supporting and cultivating company culture, and other personnel responsibilities like evaluating employee performance. Analytical skills. Developing your analytical skills at any level of employment is a good idea. As an office manager, you'll need these skills to be able to identify inefficiencies and suggest solutions in order to contribute to the success of your company. Computer skills. A strong, practical computer skill set is not just ideal, but necessary for an office manager. You should have a high enough skill level to be comfortable, accurate, and efficient with the required day to day computer operations- such as data entry, sheet creation, and formatting presentations. You'll likely use software for expense reports, facilities management, and video conferencing and day-to-day communication. Office Manager Training Courses.

Luckily, you don't need to be enrolled in a full-time degree-track program to gain an office management education.

As an office manager, you'll have to be diligent in your own work and responsible for the output of the rest of the office. Even seasoned office managers can grow stressed on days when it seems there are nonstop employee qualms and executive concerns. By adopting a few new techniques, you'll find those overwhelming days will become less frequent and more manageable. When you use our top 5 office management tips, you'll stay on top of your work and ahead of the game. 1. Establish Goals for Your Team. When you establish clear office goals, you are really creating a sense of purpose for employees. By creating team goals, or even branch wide goals, you are rejuvenating the purpose for your company to keep workers motivated. Create achievable goals that inspire team members to be ambitious with their work. When one team is personally fulfilled by accomplishing their goals, the entire workforce will be more productive and motivated in return. Also, it doesn't hurt that you'll be able to monitor each team's progress more efficiently when there is a clear goal being worked towards. 2. Communication Is Key. As office manager, your communication skills are the end-all-be-all of your success as you are typically the first point of contact for clients coming into the office. You'll not only be regularly communicating with customers but your employees when you delegate their work within the organization both verbally and written. This communication should be efficient and professional in order to ensure messages are delivered and received as intended, but friendly as well in order to maintain relationships with your customers and employees. 3. Time Management Skills. Skills in time management are an essential part of any office management job as it's your duty to utilize every minute of your role to its fullest potential. Time management and organization skills are needed to be sure you are available to properly allocate every task on schedule with the rest of the office's timelines. 4. Be an Innovative Thinker. Being an innovative thinker is step one towards being an effective office manager because problem-solving is one of your main responsibilities. As an office manager, you'll be faced with unfamiliar situations that may at first appear to be out of your control, as well as new challenges you need to overcome. It may be your first instinct to resort to being frustrated by these challenges, but instead, you'll need to develop the skill to innately approach them with innovative thinking. Here's a tip to get started: surround yourself with innovative thinkers and learn from them through observation. It's important to expose yourself to new ways of thinking and creative methods of success. 5. Continue your Education and Professional Development. The best office managers never stop learning. You'll need to continuously expand your knowledge in order to stay on top of evolving technology and develop new managerial tactics. When you make professional development a regular part of your monthly strategic career plan you'll stay ahead of the competition, and help keep your company ahead of the curve as well. Whether it's by enrolling in weekend classes or taking weekly online webinar courses, keep learning — it's part of your responsibility as an office manager. Becoming a truly great office manager is about intention — your colleagues will notice it, your executives will appreciate it, and you'll be successful because of it. Looking for more?

The type of position you hold may also affect the environment you work in. Customer service representatives sometimes work in large office rooms alongside other employees, which can make for a noisy and distracting environment.4 Some office arrangements may allow you to have your own room within the office, while others may adopt the open office layout in which staff sit at communal desks in large spaces. This open floor plan design can make for a louder environment, but it may also help to facilitate collaboration and communication.5 Entry Level Business Roles.

While customer service representatives don’t primarily sell products or services, they may have the opportunity to provide customers with important information or recommendations that can lead to sales. Most customer interactions take place via phone, but some businesses may also provide support by text, email, live chat, and social media.2 Receptionists and Information Clerks. Receptionist jobs include various administrative tasks, such as scheduling appointments, greeting customers and clients, copying and filing documents, and answering the phone. They help a business to make a good first impression on customers or clients, especially front desk receptionist jobs.7 Information clerks have many similar responsibilities, including preparing reports and bills, collecting information from both customers and staff, filing and maintaining records, and answering questions about the business’ products and services.

When you’re considering a program, it’s helpful to calculate its total cost, including expenses like books and additional required materials. While a program may help you to advance your career, it’s important to consider the salary that you’re likely to earn in your new position to help you decide if the program is worth the investment.  Location – The location of a program can affect its cost. If you have a long commute or even need to relocate to attend a program, then it’s important to include those expenses into your budgeting for your education. Some programs feature a traditional face-to-face delivery, while others are available online. Online programs offer convenience and increased scheduling flexibility, and they may be a good choice if you don’t have a traditional program available locally or are looking for the flexibility to balance your education with full-time employment or family obligations. Accreditation – When a school or college is accredited, that institution has proven that it’s met certain quality and rigor standards. Considering only programs offered by accredited institutions can help ensure that you’ll be getting a quality education from the program that you do choose.16 Instructor quality – Instructors can play a large role in the quality of your experience with a business course or program. As you research available business administration programs, look into who will be teaching you. Instructors who have real-world experience in the industry can often provide you with valuable insights and advice that go beyond what you’d learn from a textbook.

Essential Skills and Qualities . In order to be a successful office manager, there are certain skills and qualities you need to have. They typically include the following: Communication skills: as you’ll be dealing with a vast amount of people from co-workers to senior management, clients and suppliers, you’ll need to be able to communicate effectively between them all. Attention to detail: you should be able to analyse everything and make sure you aren’t making any careless mistakes. Attention to detail is key when working on important reports and documents. Leadership skills: as you’ll be in charge of coordinating the administrative team, you’ll need key leadership skills to delegate and direct. Analytical skills: you’ll be in charge of budgets and maintenance which means that you should be able to judge where the company is overspending and what you can do to cut costs and save money. Organisational skills: you’ll need to move from a number of different tasks and should be able to keep everything in order whilst multi-tasking. IT Skills: you’ll need to have great knowledge and practice of using Microsoft Office Suite and Outlook. Interpersonal skills: an office manager should have the ability to converse effortlessly between people from all walks of life, they must be an approachable and friendly character.

Problem-solving skills: as you’ll be responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of the office, you’ll need to be able to think on your feet and come up with solutions – fast! Working Hours and Conditions. If you’re looking for set 9-5 hours, this front desk profession is ideal for you! You’ll typically work a 35- 40 hour week, including a one-hour lunch break. There will be occasions that you may be required to do overtime but that will depend on the organisation you will be working for. It’s important to remain flexible in the case of a last-minute emergency, that you will be responsible for handling. After all- you’re the go-to person in the office! Salary Prospects .

There will be, of course, room for progression once you're more experienced in the job role and you'll expect a salary increase, year on year.   2. Get the Qualifications. In order to work in an office management position, you’ll require at least a high-school diploma including A-levels in mathematics, English and business. It is generally advised to obtain a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in business studies, business administration, accounting or human resource management which will give a clear picture of how the organisation will operate as a whole. Alternatively, you could complete management certifications; the International Facility Management Association offers the CFM (certified facility manager) for those that would like to become managers. If you do decide to become an active member, you’ll be required to pass an exam and complete educational activities every three years.   3. Land Your First Job. Without a few years of experience in an administrative role under your belt, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll jump straight into the position of an office manager. Instead, you’ll need to have a proven track-record of time management, leadership skills and general office duties - all key components of the ideal office manager CV. An internship would be a good starting point for a job searcher seeking a position without any higher education. This will allow you to gain hands-on work experience within an office environment and will most likely lead to a full-time position. Alternatively, you can apply for administrative assistant roles, where you will be helping the office manager with day-to-day tasks allowing you to climb up the career ladder within your organisation.   4. Develop Your Career. In order to become an office manager, you will most likely have already obtained a number of years of experience in your related field already, before advancing to manager level. Once you’re in that position, however, there are still opportunities for further growth. You could take on more responsibility and manage a larger team, an additional office, or work in a more senior level position. For example, you may move from managing the content team to the entire marketing division. If you think you have what it takes to manage a team effectively and make a real contribution to an office and the processes, then a career as an office manager is ideal for you.

Give your team members each a card so they can order food during your office lunches, or assign them cards and add a balance whenever they need to make purchases so you don't have to check out the official office credit card. You can also use Hoppier cards instead of gift cards. Send them to clients as a thank-you present, or send them to employees on their birthday, work anniversary, or holidays. You can limit the vendors that card recipients can purchase from, so you can create themed office perks — like food, wellness, office furniture, or even continuing education. (That's right! Hoppier cards can help you pay for your own office administration course.)You can also set budgets, and add your company branding to the cards, so clients will know exactly who to thank for their gift. And Hoppier cards work all over the world — no matter where your virtual team members or international clients live, they can use their card to purchase the products that are right for them. ‍Click here to downloadOops!

Office Administration is a wide range of duties that make up the functions of any office. Office administration workers may work as managers or administrative assistants. They study several different skills, including graphic design and information technology. Their primary task, however, is based in quality, customer service and organization skills. Office administrators may start in one position and gain promotions as their experience grows. You can earn an associate degree or short-term certificate in office administration in Enterprise State’s Office Administration – Administrative Assistant/Office Management program. These credentials can enable you to work in bookkeeping, accounting, customer service, banking and educational settings. STRENGTHS. COMMUNICATION SKILLS. Co-workers and customers alike will rely on you to provide clear information in writing, over the phone, and face-to-face. CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS. You want to treat people kindly and know answers to questions that relate to the type of work that you do. LISTENING SKILLS. You have to listen carefully and understand the situations of customers and co-workers in order to assist them. PATIENCE. Not everyone is friendly. You will have to be patient and polite at times you feel misunderstood or when a customer is unhappy. PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS. You should be solution-oriented, especially in high-paced environments, to be successful in this field. What jobs can I get? Office administrators offer support to office staff and leadership in several different professions. Someone with a certification or degree in office administration may work as bookkeepers, tellers, secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, postal workers, and more.

You may be responsible for negotiating repayment plans with debtors and helping them find solutions to pay overdue bills. You may have to create safe strategies for parents at a school to check their children in and out of classes. You may be responsible for answering telephones, typing documents, or filing confidential records. There are many opportunities to work in office administration! What’s the career growth potential?

There are lots of moving parts, different personalities, and daily crises to deal with; the job can become overwhelming very quickly. With that said, effective office managers are worth their weight in gold and should always be able to find great career opportunities. If you want to become the best office manager possible, then it’s important to work on some specific skills and learn how to use the most popular office tools so that you’re ready to do anything. Here are some areas to focus on as you build your office management career. Essential office manager skills. As an office manager, you’re expected to wear many hats. You don’t have to be able to build a website from scratch or drive strategy, but you do need to be analytical, tech savvy, and have skills in leadership, communication, and finance. Having some knowledge in each of these areas will allow you to delegate effectively and ensure that all the cogs in the office run smoothly. Depending on the size of the organization, an office manager’s duties will vary, and you’ll need different skills. In a larger company, office managers might oversee just one department and will need to have more in-depth knowledge of that department’s subject. They might need to work with several layers of management and deal with more red tape. Smaller companies with fewer employees might rely on their office managers to oversee every department, meaning that they will need a broader scope of knowledge and must be willing to work on a large range of projects as needed. They could be called on for everything from bookkeeping to customer service! Become the most organized person in the office. It should go without saying that office managers need to be incredibly organized and on top of things. If you want to be an effective office manager, your goal should be to become the most organized person in the office. You need to know what’s going on at all times and build systems that allow you to be the go-to person (without burning yourself out). Those systems should start with an organizational system for your own workday. It’s a good idea to start the day by tackling your inbox. Keeping your desk organized and visually clutter free will also help you to keep a clear head and an organized schedule. Keeping control of each day is important for office managers. Making each day as similar and as structured as possible will help you to build your routines and systems that keep you organized and reduce the chances of important tasks slipping through the cracks. Set aside time for reoccurring tasks and carve out blocks for those one-time tasks that come up. Plan for everything and expect the unexpected. Best tools for office managers. Staying organized in today’s fast-paced workplace means using the right tools. It’s also key to automate when you can and streamline everything you do. Although every office requires personnel to use different tools, there are a few that should be essentials in your skill toolkit. Some of the most important and practical software tools include basics like Google Calendar, Slack, Asana, Microsoft 365, Zoom, and Google Drive. These tools are cloud based (although many have a desktop version) and will allow you to stay on top of tasks and team projects. Every good office manager should also understand how to use accounting software programs such as QuickBooks or FreshBooks. Depending on the size of your organization, you may be called on to do bookkeeping or budgeting tasks. There are lots of applications for this accounting software.

How to Be a Great Leader: The 3 Keys to Managing Yourself Why Social Intelligence Is Important How to Strategize Your Job Search Make empathy and emotional intelligence your secret weapons. A successful and effective office manager must have great people skills. Organization skills can only take you so far if you can’t connect with your team members. As an office manager, you need to be approachable, understanding, and empathetic in order to build trust and respect in the office. Emotional intelligence, therefore, is absolutely key. In fact, it is one of the most important traits in the modern office. Emotional intelligence is the measure of how people understand emotions in themselves and others. Emotionally intelligent people are self-aware, have strong interpersonal skills, and are empathetic. They are able to regulate their emotions well and typically make great leaders because they stay humble and focused on the needs of those around them. While many people believe that you can’t change your emotional intelligence level, this is simply not true. You can always hone your self-awareness and understanding of others if you make an effort. The best leaders are always developing their emotional intelligence and seeking to better understand those they work with. So how can you start building your emotional intelligence? Try keeping a journal to record your emotions and your reactions to situations at work. Then, go through and think about how you could have handled the situation differently. Did you react with empathy? Did you have trouble managing your emotions? Becoming more emotionally intelligent is a vulnerable and uncomfortable process. You have to be willing to work through your feelings and develop self-regulation techniques. This won’t happen overnight, but eventually you should see changes in your own reactions to challenging situations and have the ability to engage team members more effectively. Communication: How to make others feel at home in the workplace. As an office manager, it’s your job to keep everyone working together. This is why communication is perhaps THE most important skill for office managers. Not only do you need to make sure everyone is communicating effectively to get things done, but you also need to ensure that everyone feels welcome and heard in the office. Diversity might be just a buzzword in some companies, but truly creating a diverse environment is not only the right thing to do, but also gives companies a huge competitive advantage. An effective office manager must understand this and be prepared to master cross-cultural leadership. Everyone in the office must be onboard with inclusivity and the office manager plays an important role in that process. You need to become familiar with the cultural needs of others and commit to lifelong learning. Should you become an office manager? The job of an office manager can be challenging and stressful at times. However, it can also be a satisfying and rewarding career if you continue to develop your skills and stay focused.

Office managers work closely with the company partners, owner, or president to meet their company’s staffing, equipment, and organizational needs. Duties may include pricing products from vendors, interviewing job applicants, managing payroll, and reimbursing members of the firm for out-of-pocket business expenses. An office manager must exercise sound judgment day in and day out, and any lapse can result in termination. This may be the reason that office managers generally take their jobs so seriously. Pressure can be significant, particularly for those in charge of large offices. Office managers who succeed have confidence, common sense, loyalty, and the ability to motivate others. Survey respondents who were part-time office managers added the importance of being able to work with others on a team or in pairs to coordinate smooth operations. Although it is common to think that an office manager should be an angel of tact and discretion, existing on the favorable review of his superiors, people in the profession disagreed. Many office managers said their jobs require them to be somewhat more firm than gentle when projects have to be completed, equipment needs to be serviced, or difficulties with staffing spring up. “You’ve got to stand up for what you know are the right decisions for the company, even if the boss disagrees. You live on your reputation, and when you have to do your job to someone else’s commands, you have to voice your opinion,” said one fifteen-year manager. He was supported by a number of others. “Tough,” “precise,” and “go-getting” were also words that popped up many times on our surveys. The greatest satisfaction that office managers mentioned concerned their productivity. Office managers can see immediate results from their decisions; they can control their environment (within the boundaries imposed by their employer). This ability to determine one’s own fate cuts both ways, however. Office managers have a very high turnover rate, due to firing, job mobility, and retirement. They are often the first one to be let go when conflicts arise between producers and managers, and they are frequently blamed for office problems that are not of their own making. Office management provides a very structured environment with clearly defined duties for those with financial, organizational, and interpersonal skills. One needs to have a high tolerance for risk and not be too concerned with job security. Paying Your Dues. Office managers are not required to have any specific degree, but most employers value a college degree and organizational, planning, and communication skills. Suggested courses include organizational behavior, psychology, sociology, finance, and English. Employers at smaller firms also recommend accounting studies, as payroll issues and some financial oversight may be part of the job. Online Nursing Master's programs have advantages over on-campus.

As companies expand and diversify, workers are required to perform more and more specialized tasks. Office coordination of the needs and the output of the workers is critical to the productive operation of the company. The office manager helps to standardize information, facilitates communication, and makes sure that employees are able to do their jobs. The future of office managers looks bright. Many economists predict that the economy will continue to grow and provide more office managing job opportunities over the next six years. Quality of Life. PRESENT AND FUTURE. Many office managers direct small firms. They gain valuable experience in purchasing, negotiating deals, smoothing staffing difficulties, and predicting their firm’s future needs. This last experience, learning to anticipate problems and requirements, is the most difficult and most important for the new manager. Office managers make contacts with staffing agencies, and hone their interviewing skills. Hours are long; salaries are average. FIVE YEARS OUT. Five-year veterans have gained a good sense of what the job entails. A number are beginning to bump into wage ceilings in their current firm, and the race to find new jobs begins. Many work at three, four, or even five firms in five years. A number move into jobs with larger staffing requirements than they are used to and must have strong organizational skills to meet this challenge. Hours are long; salaries are competitive; job security drops as the stakes increase. TEN YEARS OUT. Contact with partners and managing directors of firms increases, and many office managers jump to very large firms. Some are given a specific area of responsibility, such as Office Manager in charge of Staffing Needs or Office Manager in charge of Supplies and Equipment. These are valued positions, and many in them suddenly become averse to big risks and spend much of their time protecting their position. Hours and satisfaction remain steady; pay remains about the same from here on in except for cost-of-living adjustments. MAJORS.
