"As a result of the current recession, PA's are being entrusted with more responsibility as well as the handling of comercially sensitive and confidential information"

28% of PAs are now dealing with more confidential information connected to activities they are being asked to carry out in the recession.

  • 60%of PA's have access to information on workforce planning
  • 53%of PA's handle information on redundancies
  • 55%of PA's hande information on budget cuts
  • 59%of PA's handle information on employee salaries

Many PA's across the country are increasingly being asked to assist with a number of HR related activities to support their organisation through this difficult period.  Businesses are recognising the valuable contribution that secretaries and personal assistants can make and are trusting their secretarial and administrative staff with commercially sensitive and confidential information.  The study has found that PA's are taking this responsibility seriously and remain motivated in times of crisis.


What Prestige Employment Solutions Ltd say?

"Here at Prestige Employment Solutions Ltd, we can support this recent study. Since September 2007, we have been working with many PA's in finding them their next career and in more recent times, supporting them in their role as PA with HR support and Advice", Lorraine Rooney, director responded.

Emma Marmion, fellow director added that "even before the "Recession" was announced, many organisations were passing the HR responsibility to their management team and their PA's; some owners and managers were actually carrying out the HR role personally.  Particularly in light of the current economic environment, many businesses are now depending on their management team even moreso to carry out the HR duties - many of whom have little or no experience or knowledge in this field!  and this can put businesses in a very vulnerable and costly position, especially if the correct processes and procedures are not followed"
