You heard correctly – it is System Administrator Appreciation Day in the Web Applications office!
In my short time at Web Applications UK, one thing has become immediately clear: we are all about our employees – every employee, from directors to builders, from software buffs to hardware fanatics. But today, the last Friday of July, we reserve the day for one member of staff and one only: the System Administrator. You heard correctly – it is System Administrator Appreciation Day!
Web Applications UK is delighted to announce our first celebration of what is sure to become an annual Web Apps tradition. Allan Lowe, Lauren Miller and Dale Roberts form the core of the Web Apps System Admin Team, the project manager of the team being Vivienne Dean. They diligently keep the in-house networks running smoothly and securely – they are the cogs of the great powerhouse that is Web Applications UK. But it could be fair to say that, given their quiet efficiency, it is easy to overlook the fact that without them, we’d be entirely lost.
Today, we are making our System Administrators feel extra special – a signed card from all office members, a suitably massive cake for the occasion and frequent pats on the back is our way of making them feel special on this day that has been dedicated to them. It is a perfect opportunity for the rest of the WebApps team to convey our thanks to the System Administration Team for their constant hard work and endless dedication.
Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s, New Years, SysAdmin Day – yes, our new holiday is up there with the greats. Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day, everyone!
