Office professions continue to evolve along with new office automation and organizational restructuring. In many cases, office professionals have assumed new responsibilities and learned to operate a variety of office equipment. Most organizations employ office professionals to perform and coordinate office activities and to ensure that information is disseminated to staff and clients. Managers, professionals, and other support staff rely on them to keep administrative operations under control. Office professionals are responsible for a variety of clerical and administrative duties that are necessary to run and maintain organizations efficiently. They use personal computers to communicate electronically and to run spreadsheet, word processing, database management, desktop publishing, and graphics programs.
