What's the Difference Between an Employee and a Virtual Assistant?
Hey there! Welcome to my blog. I'll be sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks for your business so check back often.
But first, have you ever wondered what the difference is between hiring a regular employee and hiring a Virtual Assistant?
Well, let me tell you:
TRAINING: Training can be extremely expensive for a regular employee, but you don’t need to worry about that with a VA. VA’s have other VA’s available to get information from as well as being able to research. They don’t need the formal training and you don’t need to pay for it.
EQUIPMENT: With an employee, you need to have an office with computers, printers, copiers, etc. There is no overhead for a VA. They do their jobs from their own homes with their own equipment.
TAXES AND BENEFITS: With an employee, you have to pay for insurance, payroll taxes and vacations. This isn’t the case with a VA. They are only paid their hourly or package amount.
OFFICE HOURS: An employee needs to be given work daily and monitored to see if it is being completed or if they need more to do. You can’t ask them to leave when their work is completed. A VA works on a contract – you use them for as long as you need them and they need minimal monitoring.
HIRE ANOTHER BUSINESS OWNER: Hiring the right kind of employee for your business is critical for its growth and success. A VA is a business owner themselves and are well aware of your challenges.
Now that you know the differences in hiring a regular employee or a VA, hiring a VA just makes sense and cents!
