More than 200 administrative professionals were recognized Wednesday at the Administrative Professionals Luncheon at Tangier in Akron.
Sponsored by Superior Staffing, a temporary agency in Akron, the event included shopping from vendors, a lunch and potted flowers and gift bags for all attendees.
Tom Doll, president and owner of Superior Staffing, said he wanted to make sure administrative professionals in Akron were honored on the national recognition day.
“We’re the oldest and biggest local staffing firm in town and placing administrative professionals has been our forte for 33 years. If Akron’s going to have an administrative professionals luncheon, we should be putting it on,” he said.
Doll said many area companies sent their administrative professionals to the event. Superior Staffing has been sponsoring the event by itself for about three years and sponsored it with a local career center for years before that.
The keynote speaker was Theresa Carter, president of Omnova Solutions Foundation, who started her career at General Tire as an administrative professional placed by a temporary agency.
