New Zealand begins to ease its way out of the recession, many
business owners are apprehensive about leaping in and employing new
of small to mid-size businesses may not be able to justify employing
the same number of staff as they had prior to the recession. However,
as the New Year kicks off and business starts to pick up, many
remaining staff members may be required to take on the extra work
caused by the redundancies of the past year. This can lead to decreased productivity and low morale.
business owners who want to get back to where they were before the
recession or even grow their business, employing staff may not be an
option. Instead, the answer could lie in outsourcing.
Jackson, owner and operator of ‘My Virtual Assistant’, an online
personal assistant service located in Auckland, says: “Taking
the pressure off your team and outsourcing work can be the first step
to getting things back on track for many companies, especially
with a Virtual Assistant means you don’t have to provide valuable
office space, training or equipment, because a Virtual Assistant
operates from their own premises.”
Virtual Assistant has usually gained experience from working in the
‘real’ world for a number of years and business owners will find they
are enthusiastic, reliable and highly skilled. A Virtual Assistant will only work when there is work to be done. This
means business owners don’t have to scratch around finding work for
them to do in order to justify their employment, like you might with an
actual onsite employee. Other benefits include not having to pay for holiday or sick leave.
non-revenue generating assignments or time consuming administration
tasks to a Virtual Assistant is an effective way of increasing results
and improving productivity. Having a reliable
service to count on, such as ‘My Virtual Assistant’, will help
business owners get through the down and up times in business, and in
many cases, can lead to a long term, beneficial partnership and
ultimate business success.
though a Virtual Assistant can be used for a ‘one off’ project, in
order to make a really effective change, building rapport and passing
on regular assignments could result in a permanent and cost effective
way of conducting business.
