What is a Virtual Assistant ❓ Do you really know ❓
1) A self employed office based professional
3) Highly adaptable to your needs
Which of these would you agree with?
I personally think Virtual Assistants are highly underrated. You only have to look on the job sites and big companies are now recruiting for home workers due to the Covid situation, but in an employed (PAYE) capacity and they’re still only offering wages that were low 7 years ago when I left the UK to work abroad!
Why are virtual assistants undervalued when everyone knows that a PA or secretary is usually the working cogs that keeps a manager, director, team or small business going by keeping on top of their day to day tasks.
So why are the big companies still only offering to pay these talented individuals silly money in exchange for their expertise and capabilities? SMEs see our value, why don’t the corporates? We don’t need to have all these academic qualifications as our experience should be enough – after all we run our own business so why don’t you think we can help to run yours? 🤔
Thoughts and answers on a postcard, or if you prefer, comment below! I for one will be interested to hear what these companies have to say about it.
