Why Virtual Assistant?
A virtual assistants (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) is generally self-employed and provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients remotely from a home office.
Because virtual assistants is independent contractors rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits, except in the context that those indirect expenses are included in the VA’s fees.
Clients also avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space, equipment or supplies. Clients pay for 100% productive work and can work with Virtual Assistants, individually, or in multi-VA firms to meet their exact needs.
Why Virtual Assistants
1. Saves Time
Hiring the right person to help in your business is not a fast, easy task. First, you need to get the word out that you’re hiring, so advertising is usually involved. Then you must wait for applications and resumes, sift through them, and set up interviews.
2. Reduces Costs
There are a lot of cost benefits of hiring a virtual assistant. You can hire them by the hour for certain business tasks rather than paying a part-time or full-time employee.
In addition, you won’t have to pay for training, or at least very little. The virtual assistant you hire should already have most of the skills needed to do the job.
3. Utilizes Other Staff Better
It doesn’t make sense to spend your time answering emails, scheduling social media, and performing other routine tasks. If you are highly specialized your time may be worth much more. To better utilize your time and that of other employees, hire a virtual assistant to do such routine work.
4. Eliminates Employee Drama
Sometimes when you hire new employees they don’t mesh well with your personality. There’s also a possibility they may not get along with other staff.
Workplace drama can result. You can eliminate employee drama, though, by hiring a virtual assistant. Since they usually do not work within the walls of your business there’s little to no conflict with others.
Virtual assistants don’t get caught gossiping on work time and won’t come to work late or simply not show up. They also aren’t going to be tardy when coming back from lunch. This means you can eliminate employee drama from your workplace, or at least reduce it.
