Does Anybody Really Hire Temporary Workers Remotely?

If this is a question you are asking yourself, you obviously haven’t heard about the Remote Revolution yet. Entrepreneurs and large and small businesses around the world are turning to remote offshore staff to fill positions with skilled virtual employees quicker and cheaper.

The Greatest Advantage of Hiring Remote Workers: Value for Money
Remote Staffing Providers help companies from a diverse range of industries and locations from around the globe maximize profitability and productivity by augmenting their workforces through remote staffing. They do this by sourcing highly qualified virtual staff, creating significant savings for businesses in terms of time, recruitment and staffing costs and infrastructure.

Here are just 5 advantages to hiring remote offshore staff: 

  1. Proactive Spirit. Remote workers are dedicated to you and will learn and adapt to your corporate culture, values and goals. In fact many companies who hire virtual employees end up extending their contracts or hiring them for new projects.   
  2. Value.  Remote Staffing Providers generate great value for money as they provide skilled remote workers for as little as half the cost of regular employees.
  3. Savings. Not only on the high costs of hiring locally based staff, but associated HR, recruitment, administration and government fees are eliminated.
  4. Speed. Remote Staffing Providers allow you to assemble whatever size team you require, comprising varying skill-sets and seniority levels as dictated by your project.
  5. Sourcing. Perhaps your project requires a skill that is hard to find? You may need to communicate in a particular foreign language, for example. A Remote Staffing Provider can source obscure skill-sets, fast. 

Here are a few examples of what people who have worked with offshore virtual staff have to say about their experiences:      

“I was facing recruitment and retention problems in my operations department in Singapore. I could never find the correct fit for the job and had to resort to part-timers and interns, which were cumbersome, to say the least. My Remote Staffing Provider came up with the perfect resolution to my problem by providing me with a team, that I hand-picked and interviewed myself, whilst they handled all the HR, Administration and IT requirements for my team there. The good thing about this arrangement is that I get to manage my own team, and not just deal with an account manager. My time spent managing my department has dropped tremendously as I have a very competent team. My savings on hiring remote staff are about 20%.”
Dinesh Charles, Head, Database Operations

“Before I hired remote staff, I had to manage support completely myself, as it was hard to find anyone with the right English skill-set at my current headquarters in Bangkok. It’s great that my Remote Staffing Provider takes care of all the recruitment, office, administrative and legal stuff for my staff in the Philippines so I can focus on building my business and increasing partnerships.”
Thomas Kjeldgaard, Founder & CEO

How to Successfully Manage Your Virtual Assistant

You maybe a business owner who needs help right now with your growing enterprise but simply lack the resources to hire additional staff and purchase costly equipment. Why not consider hiring a virtual assistant to do your processes instead of staffing physically?

Hiring one will eliminate all of these issues and will give you great savings in overhead costs.

Before picking up that phone and dial for a virtual assistant, you need to consider these tips to help you manage one effectively, for you will only interact with your VA using Skype, chat or email so building a lasting relationship and constant communication is a must to land the best hire.  

To manage your VA to your success, you need to:

  1.    Chat constantly

Constant communication via chat (instant messenger) is effective if your virtual assistant doesn’t speak English very well. This way you can easily answer questions or relay tasks to your VA without having to exit what you are doing just to take a phone call

    2.     Avoid Congesting your Email Inbox

Admit it, there’s nothing more annoying than an inbox full of messages from your VA that contains questions and queries. To avoid this problem, tell your VA to save his or her questions in one email and send it to you in bulk so you can answer all of them in one go.

    3.     Organize and keep your files in a Cloud

Supposing your VA quits before finishing up a project and takes all of the files that he was working on with him. This scenario will not be a problem for you as long as from the very start of a project, you make your VA save all files to a service like Google drive so you can easily access them in case you axed your VA or he bails out on you. 

   4.     Communicate daily

To develop a good relationship with your VA and to be always in the know when something comes up, it’s good to check up on him daily via simple 10 minute conversations using Skype or email.

   5.     Define your expectations with your VA

Treat your VA as you would treat a physical office employee. This means that you should provide him with a detailed job description and tell him what your expectations are from his work so that your VA will be guided accordingly to the success of your partnership.

Take note of these tips and be on the right track on the road to success with your virtual assistant and ultimately, your business in the long run.
