Many business owners need assistance to help manage their workload and so, many choose to engage a personal assistant. Here are 14 reasons why businesses choose to hire a virtual assistant over an employee.

SmartPA

Reasons a virtual assistant can be more beneficial to a business than employing a PA:

  1. They know they require assistance but cannot afford to employ someone.
  2. They do not have the time or resources to recruit, hire and train a personal assistant.
  3. The company does not have the physical space to accommodate an assistant.
  4. The cost of recruitment and on-going wages is prohibitive.
  5. Engaging with a virtual assistant can offer flexibility to suit peaks and troughs in their business’ performance.
  6. The business need only pay for the work they actually require.
  7. They need a greater array of skills than just one personal assistant will be able to offer them.
  8. The nature of their business means that they need a personal assistant with flexible working hours.
  9. They need to retain a certain level of professional discretion – sensitive information that should not be circulated within their company.
  10. Their business saves money by only paying for productive time.
  11. Their company will experience as increase in productivity as in-house staff have more time to complete their work.
  12. Virtual Assistant services offer increased flexibility.
  13. They will receive concentrated, dedicated assistance.
  14. Good-quality virtual assistants should be trained; therefore, they will not need to train them themselves.
