Using a Virtual Assistant can be beneficial for many reasons. A Virtual Assistant team is efficient, possesses a specific skill set and is a cost-effective solution. Another reason to hire a VA that is not always at the forefront of clients minds is the opportunity a VA awards a company for high growth.
Rapid growth requires rapid hiring and training. Hiring more team members is an inescapable part of scaling up. The problem with this is many rapid hires, turn into wrong hires. Rapid training means more training down the road and becomes an inefficient use of time. Studies on the cost of employee turnover are all over the board. Some studies (such as SHRM) predict that every time a business replaces a salaried employee, it costs 6 to 9 month's salary on average. Not to mention, the cost associated with taxes, workman's compensation, unemployment insurance, benefits and government compliance.
To eliminate that, you hire a Virtual Assistant team, which will save you time and money, while also making sure you get the right people in as quickly as possible. Hiring a VA will reduce financial pressures and improve your cash flow.
Hiring the right people includes the right VA. You should seek someone who is comfortable thinking on their feet, innovative and someone who thinks strategically at every level. Our screening process makes sure that each VA fits that mold, and our proprietary process that is a blend of skill-set match, work behaviors and communication styles, makes sure you’re getting the perfect VA for you and your company’s needs. You can guarantee that with fast development there will be new problems and challenges to face, so it’s imperative to have people around you who can take this in stride and drive forward appropriate solutions.
As the owner of a small business your success is up to you. You have successfully taken your company this far, but there is only one you. There will also be areas that arise in business that may be new ventures or areas you’re not as skilled in. You will need to critically evaluate your own skillset - be honest with yourself, you can’t be an expert in everything.
Your handpicked VA, who will compliment the areas of business that you have identified as needing the most attention, will augment your team with whichever type of expertise you happen to need at the moment. Typical engagements often include multiple areas of expertise such as administrative, marketing, social media, etc. When you hire our Virtual Assistants, you have the experience, knowledge and seniority on your team, without the expense of a hefty salary, benefits, taxes and complicated employment laws.
