Hi Sarah, In our office we've been typically supporting two C-Suite Executives. Now, with furloughs, we are supporting 3-4. In our office, we all have access to every executive's calendar and can step in and help whenever someone is away. We work well together as a team. It will be interesting to see how it will all shake out when the Covid-19 pandemic is behind us.

Hi Sarah, At our organization, Executive Assistants support one C level executive. I've assisted more than one Chief on an interim basis a couple of times and it's a lot at our organization due to the intensity. At the Admin Assistant and Department Assistant levels, they may support more than one leader.

I've been asked if there is any data available on the ratio of executives to admin assistants. We have over 5000 employees and 17 members of our executive team. I support our CEO and 2 Sr. VPs. Most of our Admin Assistants support 3-4 executives. Would you share your experience?

That sounds AMAZING. I'm a Chocolate Cake person, but my Granny used to make really good sugar cream pie.

We'd love to know more about your facility or system! How many beds/facilities do you have? What are some of your biggest challenges? What would you like to know about other facilities or systems?

I will echo Elisha's comments - I had the privilege of being the President of the APex group with her for several years. I am in the process of implementing one similar at my new hospital and hope to take it system wide after all of this craziness is over.

lisa.stracek Thanks! I will have to check out that book. The description on Amazon sounds interesting. I guess I have some time on my hands to read a book now considering the lockdown!

kyna.powers Thanks for the comment. That is def true to learn new skills. I've been studying to take my certification exam and now I just feel like I should probably excelerate the process. Every morning I say to myself "Stay relevant. I gotta stay relevant!"

I have a colleague in Michigan who is facing a lay-off or having her hours cut. I didn't think I would have a problem but it did make me wonder. One thing someone said was to stay active and to get involved in efforts to help our organizations deal with this crisis. It would also be good to take the time to learn new skills, maybe through LinkedIn Learning or some other online source.
Whatever it is, we WILL get through this. Maybe they can function for a short time without us, but you know it's just a matter of time before they realize how badly they need us (and that we keep the place running). It's just a crazy time right now. Our whole world is changing in front of us. But I'm confident this will pass, and I hope we'll all be better for it.
Hang in there!

I had reserved it prior - and just finished the audio book Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown. Very timely during our current state - I would recommend everyone reading this book.
