Leading Administrative Training Company Donates Program to Deserving Organizations

Office Dynamics International awarded two organizations its Star Achievement Series® training program (Level 1) in support of Administrative Professionals.

Office Dynamics International, the globally recognized authority for administrative training and development, made two sizable in-kind donations in the month of March. As a pioneer in the field, Office Dynamics has been a vocal advocate for the education of Administrative Professionals for over 25 years. In support of its mission, Office Dynamics held a contest to identify a deserving organization and award the administrative staff with the Star Achievement Series® Level 1 Trainer’s Kit (valued at $24,000.00).

To participate, organizations had to submit application materials describing why the training is needed and pledging leadership support.

“The response was very exciting!” says Joan Burge, founder and CEO of Office Dynamics. “We had submissions from Warner Brothers, Turner Broadcasting, Prudential, and a number of other high-profile organizations.”

After a thorough review and evaluation process, the Office Dynamics team was torn. Two organizations rose to the top, but both appeared equally deserving of the gift. The solution? Award two winners!

MetLife and Texas Children’s Hospital were both selected to receive the Star Achievement Series® Level 1 Trainer’s Kit.

The Star Achievement Series® is Office Dynamics’ flagship training program for Administrative Professionals currently taught in companies like Procter & Gamble, Cisco and Kindred Healthcare. With three levels of proficiency, the program is based around a four-competency philosophy: Attitude, Skill, Teamwork and Strategy. The award of the Level 1 Trainer’s Kit provides the winning organizations with all of the materials and intellectual property required for delivering the first four workshops in the program. The Trainer’s Kit retails for $2,995.00, but is valued at $24,000.00—the cost to have master trainer, Joan Burge, teach it onsite.

“We’re proud to have supported the administrative community for over two decades,” says Joan Burge. “We regularly try to give back in meaningful ways, especially to organizations that encourage growth and development within their administrative staff.”

The winners of this generous donation were announced just before the first of April, kicking off a month-long celebration in honor of Administrative Professionals Week, which starts on April 25.

Office Dynamics will host a variety of exciting events throughout the month including a blog-a-thon, where the company will publish a new original article daily on Additionally, Office Dynamics will offer a first-of-its-kind scholarship for their nearly sold-out 23rd Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence. Details regarding scholarship application—along with more events, giveaways and celebratory offerings—will also be available on
