Does the sex of your supervisor matter? For some workers, the answer is “yes.” A recent survey conducted by Salary.com on gender perceptions in the workplace found that 36 percent of women would pick a man as a boss if given the choice. Only 11 percent of women said they’d rather work for another woman. On the flipside, 31 percent of men would prefer a male boss and 9 percent would choose a female.
In 2001, the National Secretaries Association changed its name to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP). Many people believe this term better reflects the greater responsibilities and necessary knowledge needed to perform the role successfully in the modern office.
