The Executive PA Magazine / Hays Awards 2012 will be looking to award the titles Employer of the Year and Boss of the Year.

Employer of the Year will recognise organisations that go the extra mile to support and develop the careers of their administrative and secretarial staff, and employers can be nominated by personal assistants, executive assistants, secretaries and office managers.

Boss of the Year will be awarded to the boss who demonstrates a strong working relationship with their personal assistant, which benefits their career and organisation.
