    Was wondering about some opinions on the role of your office manager in your business, and how you evaluate their performance.

    Our office manager has 8 administrative assistants working for her, and we rely on her big time. She oversees all office operations, assigns duties, is responsible for all office supplies, is my personal admin assistant, keeps job tasks organized and makes sure they are all accomplished in a timely fashion. She's in charge of all filing duties (not that she does them but makes sure that filing system "works"). She makes sure that those managers that have admin's assigned to them are pleased with performance and the successful completion of THEIR work tasks.

    It's a demanding job that requires a level headed, slow to panic, can turn on a dime when things crop up attitude, never flustered (or doesn't let anyone know it).

    Probably one of THE most important jobs in our organization. She "holds it all together"....
