Your Virtual Assistant
What is a Virtual Assistant & what are the benefits of hiring one?
Virtual Assistants are professionals who supply office support and services without actually being physically present. They use internet, fax and phone and since much of their work is done online, they can work locally or globally.
Virtual Assistants are self employed so they only charge for hours they work or tasks they complete. They provide many of the same services as on-site employees but without the added cost. This makes Virtual Assistants an ideal staffing option for a growing business. At a set fee per hour, businesses can take advantage of professional office services without having to provide sick leave, holidays, PAYE, office equipment, ACC or insurance payments and they don’t have to worry about employee tardiness, maternity leave, personal issues or personal phone calls.
Virtual Assistants work from their own home or office and use their own equipment. You don’t have to pay for or provide office space, equipment, maintenance, or additional utility bills. This is all particularly useful if you are short on space yourself.
A Virtual Assistant is an entrepreneur with their own strengths, experience and expertise. Just as you provide a service, so does your Virtual Assistant, and they have their own ways of accomplishing tasks and solving problems that you may not have thought of. Having an experienced business person to discuss ideas with may help you and your business grow. Hiring a Virtual Assistant to take care of many of your administration tasks will free up your valuable time so that you can concentrate on the things you do best for your business. It will also free up your evenings and weekends if you have been spending those times on administrative tasks, leaving you with more time for your loved ones, your sports or hobbies.
