5 Reasons Why Leaders Choose A Virtual Assistant Over An In-House Assistant
Bottom line: Having employees is expensive with payroll taxes, benefits, health insurance and compliance with ever-changing laws. But with a virtual assistant, you save money by only paying for what you need – nothing more, nothing less. In fact, a 2019 Global Workplace Analytics study shows an immediate cost savings of 30-60% when hiring virtually compared to in-house hires!
Speed of Hire
When you need help, you likely need it now. Or – if you’re being honest with yourself – yesterday. A 2019 HireVue Study showed that in house positions took an average of 42 days to fill — virtual jobs an average of 3 days. Just imagine how much you could accomplish with 40 additional days of help!
A 2019 American Management Association study showed a reduction in employee absenteeism by 68% for virtual employees versus on-site staff.
When employees work at home or remotely, they often take better care of themselves and in turn, are healthier, happier and more productive employees. In fact, a 2019 American Management Association study showed a reduction in employee absenteeism by 68% for virtual employees versus on-site staff.
We’ve said it before – see above – but we’ll say it again (and again): Happy employees are productive employees. Studies show home-based workers are 13% more productive than their in-house counterparts, have a 50% lower attrition rate, and report more positive job satisfaction.
Changing Work Force
The landscape of the American workforce is changing – for the better. Those happy, productive employees we mentioned? Their numbers are steadily increasing because according to a recent Forbes study, more than 35% of the workforce is remote at least part of their week with over 77% of employers stating they felt they were more productive when working remotely.
