Due to the pandemic, businesses had to innovate and modernize the way they operate in order to keep up with the ‘new normal’. One way that businesses have adapted is by expanding their employee base to include more virtual assistants and remote workers. But just like all types of management, there are benefits and downsides. Here are the pros and cons of having in-person staff.
The internet has drastically changed the way we live and work, but there are still some advantages to more traditional methods of staffing. Having in-person staff may be beneficial for you if you prefer a traditional hiring and managing process. For instance, if you’re looking to hire employees, it may be easier meeting in person and getting a sense of their personality and how they would fit in with your company culture. Being able to talk to your employees in person can also create strong working relationships.
The main disadvantage of having in-person staff is the cost. Having in-person employees requires the company to rent/buy an office space as well as provide office equipment like computers, desks and chairs, and all essential items to running the business. Additionally, there is the cost of salary, sick leave, time off, holiday pay, and medical insurance.
*Hiring traditional employees will require you to pay them at least minimum wage based on the state law (unlike virtual assistants/staff).
Utilizing Virtual Assistants may be the right option for your business. Having remote workers stationed around the world is a great way to combat business expenses and increase revenue.
The average cost of a Virtual Assistant is $10/hour!
If you’re doing the math, the expense of hiring four Virtual Assistants is the equivalent of hiring one in-person admin assistant.
The good thing about innovating in the new digital era is that you can mix traditional and modern ways of hiring and managing a team. You can hire in-person employees that manage a team of Virtual Assistants.
Leveraging in-person and VA employees can help grow your business exponentially.
