Three Reasons Why You Should Outsource Your Admin: Joanne Peters


Tags – Outsource Your Admin


The recent pandemic has proved that working remotely works. In fact, working remotely can have many benefits.

So, why not outsource to an experienced setup that takes care of your admin.

But, perhaps you are hesitant to give work to someone who is outside your organisation: what if they get it wrong?

Well here are some distinct advantages that might just change your mind!


Cost Effective

There are none of the commitments you have when you take on a new employee – no sick pay, holiday pay or national insurance and pension worries. You don’t even need to supply a desk space for a VA as they work remotely. 

In addition, you can agree to a contract whereby you only pay for the hours they work. So, if one month you need extra, there’s no need to commit to that every month. 

VAs are a reflection of your business, so when you are busy, they will be busy and vice versa. It’s quite a synchronised relationship.


Experienced Staff

Virtual Assistants usually have an extensive background in business and specialise in administrative tasks.

For instance, they can type up meeting notes in a flash, update your CRM system, chase debts if they offer credit control, or other tasks a PA might usually do, all in a far more efficient way than you can.

In addition, VAs are extremely adaptable and don’t just come in doing things their own way, they will work in harmony with your business.


New Perspective

You might even find that a new set of eyes on your processes and systems brings with it some new ideas and more efficient working practices

Many people also find the actual procedure of deciding what a VA can do in their business helps them view their own processes differently and can really improve things going forward.

Also, it can free up your time to focus on more complex or enjoyable areas of your business, and who doesn’t want to do that?
