Why Should Employers support IAAP?
Watch this informative video on IAAP!
IAAP members receive tools and knowledge necessary to become more effective contributors to their employers. By reading IAAP publications and attending IAAP educational events, members stay on top of their profession.
Save time and money – When seeking ideas and know-how for a specific project, IAAP members don’t often have to reinvent the wheel. They can call on the support of their peers and/or headquarters for advice and for direction on available resources, often saving organizations valuable time and money.
Members receive leadership training and experience that builds their confidence and teamwork skills.
IAAP members are better-prepared, front-line “ambassadors” for their employers. Having knowledgeable professionals on staff reflects well on your business or service.
Workers experience professionalism first-hand and aspire to greater professional heights.
Helps in recruiting new admins and retaining current workers.
Builds a team spirit among admins across departments and facilities.
Maximum bang for the buck with minimal cost -- access to current business research, targeted publications, selected study materials, certification programs, and more.
Opens communication between management and administration, producing better work relationships.
Raises admins to a professional level that serves all corporate team members well (managers and other professionals perceive admins in new ways...may also help in delegating more work to admins as they are seen as capable professionals).
New feelings of self-worth and competence empower admins to tackle more (and more difficult) challenges instead of waiting for assignments...it helps managers get more done with the confidence it is being done right.
These are just a few (truly) examples of what is to be gained from associating with a professional organization.
Employers: Encourage your admin staff to join IAAP and experience all our association has to offer.
