Administrative Office Procedures
This course may not be glamorous, but it is essential to the success of any enterprise. A well run office reduces miscommunications and helps to eliminate common errors. By making the administrative office a priority, you will establish clear policies and procedures with employee understanding and buy-in, which ensures that your work environment runs smoothly.
Why Your Office Needs Administrative Procedures
Administrative procedures are more than mundane policies. They are put in place to ensure the survival of the company in any event or situation. From catastrophes, to change, to basic day-to-day activities, administrative office procedures address them all when they are done correctly. Business continuity, succession planning, audit requirements, and recovery planning are all included in administrative procedures
Business continuity is also known as business continuance. It is the plan in place to keep a company running in the event of a disaster; during and after. Establishing business continuity requires identifying essential tasks first. This includes items and services that are critical for the organization to function. These will vary by organization but they include technology, employee safety, sound structure, etc.
Successful succession planning develops a pool of talent so that there are more than enough qualified candidates to fill vacancies in leadership. This strategy requires recruiting qualified talent, creating a talent pool, and instilling loyalty in employees.
Recovery planning goes hand-in-hand with business continuity. Recovery planning, or disaster recovery planning, is the process that is put in place to recover data, software, hardware, and manpower that the company needs to start back up after a disaster.
