Administrative managers play an active and highly visible role in many parts of a business’ operations. This is a top-level role as administrative managers work with other leaders and team members in each of the business’ departments. An administrative manager can draft and implement policies that oversee employee wellness and performance, but may also be the person to greet visitors, answer phone inquiries and handle complaints.
This role is similar to an office manager or business manager. An office manager is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of an office and its various departments. Their duties include communicating with department heads, relaying important information or policy changes from upper management and implementing incentives to enhance employee productivity.
