Innovating Manpower: 2021 The Rise of Virtual Assistants
2021, the year where we keep our hopes up. Last year, we experienced so many drastic scenarios in our lives where most of us wish for 2020 to end. Now that we’re into another year, the question is, what can 2021 bring us? Is it going to be better than 2020, or should we prepare for something worse to happen? Who knows?
We’ve seen the effects of the pandemic in our global economy. Many businesses had chosen to shut down, and there’s a large number of people who lost their jobs. However, with so many things happening in the business world, the business competition became more aggressive, which means business owners need to work smart to cope with the global economy’s changes.
Since having a team who can support your business in person involves social interaction (which is restricted in most parts of the globe), you should turn your back on the traditional way of running your business and start building your remote team. Operating a team in a remote location can be challenging. However, with the help of technology, everything is possible.
Because of that, the virtual assistant industry started to soar higher than it was before. We listed some facts to know why having a remote team will benefit you and your business.
Remote workers are more productive.
As a business owner, one of the things that we consider when we hire an employee is their productivity. By having a remote team, business owners are starting to notice the massive difference between someone who works for them in person than a remote worker. Based on a recent study, 53% of remote workers are willing to render overtime hours than 28% of on-site employees. This same survey also found out about the following details:
- 45% of remote workers get more tasks done in less time.
- 44% of remote workers say distractions are fewer when working remotely rather than working in an office.
- 90% of managers report that employees are more productive when choosing what time they want to work or get their tasks done.
Remote workers stay longer in their position.
It’s always good to have someone you can trust when it comes to your business, right? However, nowadays, it is hard to keep employees around for years.
Based on a national U.S. survey, 73% of remote workers are satisfied with their jobs. Apart from that, 53% of remote workers report that they are not considering leaving their jobs to find another company to work with. On the other hand, 54% of on-site employees are searching for a new company to work for.
Remote workers help you increase your savings.
Embracing remote work is a win-win situation for both the employee and the employer when saving money. It can help you save money for office space, cleaning services, furniture, office equipment, electricity, and other business owners’ overhead costs. Remote workers use their own devices to perform their job and do the tasks they need to accomplish. This means saving money in buying computers and hardware. According to Global Workplace Analytics, Businesses would save over $500 billion annually in real estate, electricity, absenteeism, turnover, or approximately $11,000 per employee.
Now that you know how you can benefit from having a remote team, you must be wondering how to build your own. No worries, we also got that covered for you!
