It’s easy to take for granted the work System Administrators do for us each day, but without them, the rest of the company’s work would suffer. It is the System Administrator, after all, who keeps your computer running smoothly, ensures the network is secure and performs data backups when necessary. So this year for System Administrator Appreciation Day on July 29th, show your support for IT professionals and acknowledge the important duties they’re tasked with each week.
Try sending a thoughtful thank-you email or even taking your System Administrator out to lunch. A little gratitude goes a long way toward helping a colleague feel recognized and valued!
