Hiring a Virtual Assistant VS a Full-Time Employee
Running your business is not that easy. You will have to dedicate much of your time to keep it growing and requires a lot of hard work. Factors that you need to invest most when it comes to business are - time, effort and money as these are the main ingredients in order for you to successfully grow your business. With a number of tasks that needs to be taken off with your business, one of the best solutions to ensure that these will be accomplished is considering the idea of hiring Virtual Assistants and delegating these tasks to them. Just like what most businessmen do. On one of our blog posts, we talked about what are the advantages when you hire a Virtual Assistant (VA). On this blog, we will show you a different perspective on what sets Virtual Assistants apart from regular office employees.  But before we proceed, let's go ahead and recall what a Virtual Assistant is. Thebalance.com defines a VA as a person who provides support services to other businesses from a remote location.

What we will be talking about is some of the advantages of a VA over a full-time office employee. Let's go and take a look.

  • When you hire a VA, there are no employee-related taxes, insurance, paperwork, and/or benefits. But, as an Employee, there are.
  • With a VA, no costs for office space and equipment. While with an Employee, you must provide one.
  • A VA has the ability to stay on schedule while an Employee may waste their time at work.
  • VAs are skilled professionals, you don’t need to spend money just to train them. While an Employee has limited skill set and/or has to undergo additional training and it is you who is going to bear the training cost.
  • When you need any assistance on a weekend or at night, the VA is available. While the Employee is only available during office hours.
A VA can indeed fulfill many roles and tasks. They can even give additional benefits to you as a Business Owner as well, specially with a great amount of money you can save by hiring them to your organization. Again, no need to offer office space, no need to train them. So, next time you'll be needing to increase your manpower to your organization, you might want to hire a VA. And see what they can bring to the table.

We hired a VA because we needed help on recruiting for agents and I am very satisfied with my Virtual Assistant. The experience with Virtudesk is really good and I am really really happy.

One of the reasons why we hire a Virtual Assistant is because a VA can’t walk out my door and take my business. Second, the cost value and the third is, we just had a super well qualified hardworking admin – I am very satisfied with my VA. We are also constantly getting follow-ups to ensure that we are very satisfied.
