When you grow up the corporate ladder or your own enterprise begins growing too fast, a personal assistant becomes extremely important to keep the growth on track and not lose your way.
Depending on how big your operation and functions are, a personal assistant would be that much more expensive. You can be sure of one thing though – all good personal assistants are expensive.
If that’s too much of a challenge for you, just take it easy; there are very good options for you to work around with a virtual assistant in Arkansas.
A large number of your non-core but important functions that an in-house personal assistant handles can be outsourced to overseas workers with similar or better skills.
More importantly, they are trained to meet the quality standards required by clients in the United States and you get all of that at a fraction of the cost you would pay to an in-house worker.
You would obviously like your personal virtual assistant to have special skills not just with computer systems but also in managing situations wherein they have to interact with different types of people on your behalf.
Top talent at a fraction of the cost you pay here
You would be pleasantly surprised by the efficiency level of these virtual workers especially if they happen to be from the Philippines.
A Filipino virtual assistant comes with the skillset and works ethic that is the best you find anywhere in the world. The work of a personal assistant involves giving access to many of your sensitive data to someone who is thousands of miles away.
Such workers must have high levels of personal integrity, English language proficiency, system, and software compatibility to handle the tools and techniques needed to discharge their work effectively.
When you outsource work to business process outsourcing (BPO) companies in the Philippines, you get all of these advantages and more.
You need to dedicate more time to your core functions
When you go up the ladder in your vertical or in the organization’s leadership team, the nature of your work changes at every level.
There is a lot on your plate from work execution to workflow management and to directional management, when you barely have time outside meetings.
Your process and project-related matters are handled by the respective managers in charge of these but there are loads of functions at the personal level that you don’t have time for.
For instance, checking the mailbox and reading important emails as well as responding to them as necessary, is a very important part of your job but you must prioritize the meetings over all other things.
Hire resources from a world-class talent pool
Some business heads are hesitant to hire virtual workers as they feel it might involve setting up an office for the virtual worker/s.
Many folks get into that kind of offshoring vs outsourcing discussions but it’s simply outsourcing wherein you just get your job done from an overseas location and pay only for the job. No other overheads are involved.
Alliance Global Solutions is an internationally renowned BPO company based in the Philippines. They have the best virtual workers suited to serve the needs of American companies.
