Top 5 reasons to hire a virtual assistant
Hiring a virtual assistant is now preferred by most companies because of the benefits.
The world they said is a global village. Time has past when you have to hire people physically or walk into an office premises to get a job done.
With the improvement in technology, computers and Android phones, it has now become possible to add team of virtual assistants to your employees list and retain them on a part-time or full-time basis.
There are so many reasons businesses both small and big make use of virtual assistant in getting some of their works done. Here are top reasons you might consider to hire a virtual assistant.
- Cost Effective
Virtual Assistants reduce several costs on the part of the business. There is no need to create an office space, pay allowances, grant leave, etc.
Also, due to the competition by online service providers, owing to having much more people available to do the job from the comfort of their home, virtual assistant services are cheaper in the service fees charged compared to hiring a full-time office worker.
To me, hiring a virtual assistant is the best way to carry out some tasks that require high level of secrecy and confidentiality. This is so because, the person you are hiring doesn’t know you and is only interested in getting paid for the service rendered
This cannot be said when you take your document to a physical office where they may value the content of your documents over the service.
You can simply request a Non-Disclosure Agreement to be signed by the virtual assistant.
- Flexible hours of work.
Unlike the traditional 9-5 hours of work, you don’t need to be there for the virtual assistant to do your job. All you need to do is to give out the job to the assistant and let him do it at his own time.
The only thing you have to do is to specify the delivery time you expect the work to be completed and always check on the virtual assistant to ensure your work is being worked on.
- Working with professionals.
Hiring a virtual assistant enables you to work with professionals at a lower cost. You can easily meet experts in various fields from different countries of the world.
Also, you have choices to make in selecting who to work with when you put up request in the various freelance platforms.
- Virtual Assistant increases Productivity.
You can see that you are getting more for less when you hire a virtual assistant. You don’t need to have various departments to get your job done.
You can hire one person that possesses different skills that you need in your business. For instance, a social media manager can as well know how to design a website or do market research.
This is what you would have hired people from different professional/academic discipline to do, but here you are having it done by one virtual assistant.
You can see that virtual assistant is very good for small and startup companies in minimizing their human resource costs as well as for big and established companies in maintaining secrecy and doing a one-time project.
You may have a job that requires periodic assistant, say once in six months. You may not want to hire someone to do a job that will only require their service once in a given time. In this case, a virtual assistant is ideal.
