The pandemic has brought with it a change of mindset towards working from home and remote working. Companies are realising that they no longer need a member of staff physically in the office and many are looking for flexible solutions and ways to lower cost. Hiring an additional staff member can be too costly, especially for a start-up. For instance, the salary, training cost, infrastructure, tax, social security, and benefits may add up to huge expenses. That’s where a virtual assistant can step in to perform any task that businesses don’t know how to do, are too busy to do, don’t want to do or that would be better outsourced. It means lower operational costs without a compromise on quality of work.
