A Free Online Celebration

ADMIN+
MONTH

April 4-29, 2022

Celebrate the Admin+ profession, all month long

Each April, for over a decade, we’ve honored the Admin+ profession with an extravaganza that includes interactive learning, meaningful networking, entertaining giveaways, and well-deserved awards — all centered around one powerful theme.

This year’s fully virtual celebration brings together our entire community to engage, learn, and connect LIVE — no matter where you are.

Admin+ Month 2022 has ended. We’re currently recapping all of the memories from Admin+ Month. Stay tuned!

The theme of Admin+ Month 2022 is…

Together we build.

Every day, you show up.
No matter the time, resources, support (or lack thereof).
You make it happen.

What would happen if you showed up — and you had everything you needed to succeed?

A growth mindset.
Strategic frameworks.
Time and focus.
Structure and accountability.
A like-minded community.

It’s a personal question, but the possibilities belong to all of us. Because together, we do more than show up. We build.

We build rock-solid foundations for career growth and resilience.

We build bridges to connect us to powerful professional networks.

We build a more expansive Admin+ profession, stacked with strategic business partners and high-value contributors.

We build deeply fulfilling careers that we love.

Together, we build momentum.

Am I part of the Admin+ Community?

Today’s professional landscape is uniquely complex, with roles and responsibilities evolving organically to meet the times. Nowhere is this growth more evident than in the world of the workplace operator.

The Administrative, Operations, and People professionals in this community defy outdated notions of these roles, moving in lock-step with executives and making high-value contributions that help advance their organizations’ most important goals.

In an age where new titles and evolving roles may cause confusion about who this community is for, “Admin+” is a simple unifier representing all individuals and teams who make workplaces work.

If that’s you, OfficeNinjas is your community. Admin+ Month is your celebration.

Admin+ Month Points Stacker

We showered the Admin+ community with dozens of hand-selected prizes, lovingly curated by the OfficeNinjas HQ team and Admin+ Month Advocates.

View the complete winners and prize list.

How is Admin+ Month free?

Creating experiences that are both exceptional and accessible has always been central to our mission. Admin+ Month is no different.

In previous years, sponsorships from admin-supporting vendors fueled Admin+ Month. This year, reinvesting revenue from OfficeNinjas Education Programs — our professional development training and services — allows us to continue to bring Admin+ Month to you for free.

While we love to celebrate and support the Admin+ community every chance we get, OfficeNinjas operates as a for-profit organization.

Our paid education programs help fund Admin+ Month and compensate the incredible staff at OfficeNinjas HQ. We are a dedicated team who works passionately to produce what we feel is the most innovative educational training available for Admin+ professionals.

Whether you take advantage of our free offerings or invest in our paid training programs, thank you for trusting us with your time and attention. It means the world to us.

Interested in a custom learning program?

Beyond Admin+ Month, we partner with companies to upskill their Admin+ teams with modern training all year-round.
