13 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Virtual Assistant

Most entrepreneurs and businesses require some sort of administrative or office support & in the past that meant hiring a Personal Assistant or office staff. Have you ever considered virtual (or off-site) assistance as an option?  A Virtual Assistant can be an invaluable resource to you or your business. If you are skeptical or are unsure exactly how one could benefit you, we’ve put together a list of reasons why you could (& should)  consider using a Virtual Assistant.

13 reasons why hiring a Virtual Assistant can be beneficial to your business:

  1. You are an entrepreneur, small business owner or non-profit organisation and you need assistance but simply cannot afford to employ someone yet.
  2. You need flexible and affordable administrative assistance to ensure you focus on getting the important stuff done and growing your business.
  3. Your business does not have the office space or resources to accommodate an employee.
  4. You don’t have enough work to justify employing someone yet you need help from time to time.
  5. You do not have the time to recruit, hire & train an employee. A good Virtual Assistant won’t require training in their areas of expertise (other than familiarisation with your Company specific systems and processes).
  6. Your business saves money as you only pay for productive time and the work that actually needs doing.
  7. You will receive dedicated support on required tasks.
  8. Working with a Virtual Assistant can offer the flexibility you need to suit the peaks and troughs in your business’ performance & workload.
  9. Your existing staff members can focus on completing the tasks they were hired to do.
  10. A single employee may not be able to offer as great an array of expertise as a Virtual Assistant business could.
  11. You need not worry about covering employee pension schemes or tax costs, nor will you ever need to pay for extended kitchen breaks!
  12. With technology as advanced as it is, the fact that a Virtual Assistant is working away from the office should not prove a problem. Real time communication and data sharing software means that you never need have downtime.
  13. You need personal (or professional) administrative support to ensure you maintain a healthy work-life balance.
