Enter EAC awards and stand a chance to win as we celebrate 10 years of unleashing the potential of the office administrator

Mbali Mkhize

From 21-22 September 2023, the University, together with office administrators, will be celebrating 10 years of the Empowered Administrators Conference (EAC). Mbali Mkhize, Senior Director of the Department of Marketing and Communications, and Convener and Founder of the EAC, said the focus of the 2023 EAC “is to build agile office administrators who rise to challenges and can strike a balance in their work, home, and life in general. An agile office administrator has a positive outlook on life and has a set of goals to achieve within a set timeframe and upholds the values of the organisation”. Part of this annual event will be awards that are based on the University’s values, which are Integrity, Respect, Accountability, and Excellence. Please visit https://www.mut.ac.za/eac/awards/  and enter the five awards if you qualify. Besides the excitement of winning one, or more of these awards, the organisers are using the awards to highlight the need for members of organisations to respect the values of their organisations. In her own words, Mkhize says the values are the foundation of an organisation. The closing date for entries for the awards is 15 September 2023. The organisers will follow the applicable guidelines, one of which is that the adjudication panel’s decisions will not be negotiated.
