Dartmouth administrative employees enjoyed a reception at the Top of the Hop during Administrative Professionals Day on April 25. Held annually, the event offers programming about work-related issues and is an opportunity for administrators across the campus to gather and be recognized for the key roles they play in the life of the College.
This year, attendees heard presentations by Carl Pratt, general manager of the Hanover Inn, and Cristina Lind, a consultant who works with individuals to help them create more effective and workspaces and systems. "Cristina's message was very useful—particularly in our fast-paced office and in my job," says Bonnie Holbrook of career services. "I'm constantly changing my focus and my tasks and her advice was very helpful." Annette Hamilton, who also works in career services, adds, "It was great to be recognized in this way."
Some 125 employees attended the event, which was coordinated by the Office of Human Resources and the Dartmouth Staff Partnership, chaired by Marilyn Ewing, administrative assistant in the upperclass dean's office. "This was a wonderful opportunity to recognize the critical work that support staff do every day," says Traci Nordberg, chief human resources officer.
