Pleasant vibe, pleasant co workers.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 10, 2014
Receptionists have specific goals they must meet to be successful. Receptionists must have impeccable customer service skills and knowledge of filing systems, as well as general office skills. Abiding by yearly performance goals helps many people in the work environment successfully accomplish job tasks. Performance goals also help workers strive for better execution in their work. Receptionists do not have a typical office job; they must deal with people while keeping track of important paperwork and appointments. Receptionists must also keep a clean and organized workspace to properly do their job. Implementing performance goals for your receptionist helps her understand what you want from her as an employee. Yearly performance goals are also ideal for suggesting better ways to work and implementing new work techniques.
