The Benefits Of Outsourcing To A Virtual Assistant
Business Owners are referring to Virtual Assistant support, as being an incredible investment.
fa-

Time

You pay me for the time it takes me to do the task(s), none of the additional benefits a permanent employee receives.

Facilities

I work from home, I drink my own coffee and make lunch with my own facilities.  My down-time is the 20 minutes I give myself after the school run, to re-set my mind.  I don’t need a staff canteen, a gym membership, machine vended coffee or a carshare with somebody with whiffy feet.

Health & Safety

Being responsible for my own working environment, if I fall off my chair or fall down the stairs to take a home delivery, it’s my issue.  I have a bright office, good lighting, all wires tucked away and an office chair that forces me to have great posture and not slouch.  Worry not, I’m sorted.

Insurance

I hold public liability and professional indemnity insurance.  Something else I have covered.

I.T Equipment

I work with my Laptop and 42” monitor, printer, iPhone and a few other mod-cons.  I use Olympus AS-7000 transcription equipment, all paid with my hard-earned cash.  I am always happy to receive funky IT donations!  But this is another expense that won’t leave you out of pocket – because the expense (and equipment), is all mine.

Office Furniture

I have my large white office desk I bought 3 years ago from a well-known on-line store.  If I need more desk space, there’s the dining table or co-working space.

Health Insurance

Private Health Insurance is at the discretion of the Virtual Assistant to provide her own private cover if needed.

Human Resources

If I have an issue, I step back and assess it over a cuppa.  I then seek to resolve it and get on with the job I have committed to doing.  I have no HR Department, so it really is a case of breath, assess, sort, crack on!
fa-

Payroll

I send the invoice via Invoicely; you pay the invoice.  Et voilà, all done!
fa-

Reviews

Regular planning calls between myself and my client are essential, to keep us aligned and on target.  The best personal reviews for me, are a heartfelt “thank you”, a great recommendation or testimonial telling prospective clients, I helped make a difference to your business.

Sick Leave

I’m rarely sick.  No prizes for guessing how much this will cost you?
fa-

Holiday Pay

We all need holidays, but as a Virtual Assistant, you don’t pay me for that privilege, it’s a choice I made being freelance.
fa-

Maternity/Paternity Pay

Be rest assured, I am having no more children.  No maternity benefits for me thank you very much.
