How Does It Weigh Up?

[x_text]Research has shown that hiring a Virtual Assistant can be a far more cost effective option for small businesses.

When working with a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the time you use.

There’s no need to worry about:

  • Superannuation
  • Annual leave
  • Personal/carer leave
  • Public holidays
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Office equipment

Studies have shown that on average, approximately 58% of an employees’ day is spent on work that directly adds “real value” to the business.**
