Why A Virtual Assistant?
Virtual Assistants are a fantastic option for businesses who want to save their precious time and money for more important things! Businesses do not need a real live, kiwi contact person to do administrative tasks such as answering the phone and managing paperwork.
What they need is a capable person who can handle responsibilities in a way that is cost efficient. With our Virtual Assistant Services this can be closer than you think!
With no long term contracts and no ACC or PAYE to deal with, our reliable staffing approach means that you can leave all the work to us. Our experienced team operates a thorough recruitment process in order to secure the best candidates for your Virtual Assistant NZ position.
Your new Virtual Assistant NZ staff member will be comprehensively trained in time to take on their new position and will continue to receive ongoing advanced training each month, including familiarisation and command of the latest technologies such as Xero, Google Apps, Voxer, Office and more!
Your new Virtual Assistant NZ staff member will also be committed to handling your issues in real-time, and will have a good understanding of local New Zealand phone numbers and cities around your location, to make the transition as smooth as possible.
As well as gaining quality staff, we continue to provide Virtual Assistants NZ support that you can rely on. Our dedicated team of HR specialists are trained to oversee your Virtual Assistants NZ staff member in the Philippines, to give you continuous piece of mind.
Combining resources and skills from New Zealand and the Philippines also allows your business to gain access to great service at a cost that will benefit you. Outsourcing is a fantastic way to save money and can cost you as little as a quarter of the costs associated with employing staff members in an ‘in-house’ capacity.
It has been estimated that the full weight of employing someone in New Zealand totals around one and a half to two times the wages that are reserved for them.
This takes into account charges associated with recruitment, insurances, taxes, KiwiSaver contributions, office overheads, office set-up, training and more.
As well as these main costs are smaller expenses to take into account, including jury leave and parental leave and consumables such as tea, coffee, toilet paper etc.
All of these costs add up and let’s not forget staff turnover. When an employee leaves, the costs consumed by your business include payment of accrued leave as well as costs associated with replacing the employee.
This can include temporary employees to fill the role, advertisements for the position, hours for interviewing and recruitment, and ultimately a loss while the new employee is trained and inducted into the role.
Depending on the position in question, it can take anywhere from four months to a year for an employee to become adequately productive in their role, and a valuable asset in their position, and for your business.
All of this amounts to one simple point – for kiwi businesses trying to get ahead, outsourcing to Virtual Assistants is the most cost effective way to fuel your business for now, and the future.
