I recently spoke to someone who advised that he was shocked at the cost of a V.A. He thought he would be better off hiring a member of staff. Now, most companies go through a period where they have work coming in, they are getting really busy, but they aren't quite ready to take on the responsibility of a member of staff. So what are your options? Well, you could hire a new member of staff, maybe just part-time, surely that will help? Here is what do you need to look at if this is the route you decide to take:
To hire a new employed member of staff you must start with Recruitment, now someone with Customer Service and Admin experience will be commanding around £12 per hour as a salary, you could go for a school leaver at minimum wage, but you will have to train them from scratch, and didn't you say you were busy?!
On average to hire a new member of staff will cost you around double their final annual salary in their first year.
Your other option is to hire a Virtual Assistant. What you need to know is that with a Virtual Assistant:
So that hourly rate that you think is too expensive actually provides you with a resource that is flexible and immediate.
Companies hire Virtual Assistants for a variety of reasons, from extra help in busy periods to a way to expand without needing larger premises or more staff.
