With growing businesses, the need to hire increases!
This is a natural consequence in progression and there is nothing that one can debate about. But the problem arises when the business is still in the rising and there may not be much work for a full-time employee.
Additionally, the overheads!
Apart from the fact that the new recruit may not have enough work for a full payday, there is an added the burden of the overhead explosion of the companies goes on a hiring spree. Hiring employees to set off a new contract may as well set off the profits that could accrue from the new assignment.
Here is the case for the hiring of a virtual assistant:
The hiring process is cumbersome:
No manager or personnel hiring department has it easy. The process involves advertising and passing the good word, then waiting for the applications, filtering them and calling for interviews. Once the first list is prepared one may need to further interview them to filter the best and then the candidate is finally got. All this rigmarole can be cut down in hiring a virtual assistant!
Cost-benefit is a reality for them:
Virtual assistants can be paid by the hour or the job that they are doing. For instance, a company may hire four to five different virtual assistants for different specialized jobs instead of one person doing everything.
The cost of training them is also minimal because most of them have the set of skills required already. Maybe they simply need a short briefing about their role in the company and you are set.
Virtual assistants, in the long run, are extremely beneficial to the company. We owned a business card printing Glasgow and we have seen the benefits to be called experts in this. We only look forward to virtual assistants when we have smaller jobs of designing or printing business cards. It is cost-effective and efficient too.
