It can be tricky to determine whether it's time to hire a PT/FT employee, or if you could benefit from a virtual assistant instead. Here are some tips to help you decide on the best option for you. With a virtual assistant, there is:

  • a flexible time commitment based on your needs.
  • no need to purchase and provide equipment, laptops for example.
  • a shorter hiring/ onboarding process and immediate availability.
  • no payroll taxes or unemployment insurance to manage. 
  • a wide range of possible tasks completed.

Some things to consider would be:

  • if that person would ever need to physically come into the office.
  • if need that person to be available during specific times of the day.
  • what are your expectations from this person and would they be more in line with a dedicated employee, or someone who you can check in with when convenient?
