1. Pay for what you use
One of the most fundamental aspects of outsourcing work is that you are only paying for the time that you need, as opposed to paying an hourly rate, tax/NI for inhouse employees. Your business may experience slow or peak periods – in this situation hiring a remote worker would be ideal as you can then decide when you require that extra pair of helping hands, and over what length of time.
2. Focus on the real business
Administrative task are a time consuming but essential part of running a business, however hours spent on processing invoices or typing reports will prevent you from driving forward vital business operations. Hiring a virtual assistant will ease your workload and allow you to grow and develop the core of your business.
3. Leave it to the experts
If you know that you lack expertise in certain tasks why not allow a proficient VA to complete the work? Due to the various projects that they have been assigned to, for different clientele, they are more likely to offer a wider range of skillsets, which is a distinct advantage over your own permanent staff who may not have had the opportunity to update their technical skills.
4. No more stress in the office
Wave goodbye to staff conflicts, office politics, unfair dismissal claims, claims against harassment/discrimination, staff browsing online or gossiping around the water cooler … not to mention the dreaded mandatory staff training…Yippee!!
5. Lack of overheads
A virtual secretary works remotely from their own home/premises and will use their own computer, phone/fax, internet connection printer and consumables. This is a excellent perk for an employer who would normally have to fork out on office premises, furniture, equipment and stationery – as well as heating and lighting costs.
6. Work from home
The thought of not having to commute into work has always appealed and now the dream can become a reality. A VA can literally work anyone in the world which means that you can avoid the tricky subject of a relative stranger working in your own home, or having to share open space whilst the business is expanding.
