Don't work like a dog!

However, performing all of the work yourself can prove to be time consuming, difficult to keep on top of as well as being exhausting and stressful. Unfortunately, many people believe that this is their only choice, especially if they are low on funds, which is often the case when you’re just starting out. Making the choice to hire staff, even when you it is within your set budget can mean that you have to set up endless interviews in order to find a suitable candidate. Having an onsite employee also means that you have the added stress, cost and paperwork of covering staff when they go on holiday, their sick pay, national insurance costs, new equipment, not to mention more responsibility.

One of the best solutions for small businesses needing to take on new staff is to outsource some or all of your excess work and responsibility to a reliable virtual assistant or specialist transcription service. Most transcription services and virtual assistant companies use expert qualified, self-employed individuals who have many years’ experience in their field of excellence. Imagine how much it would cost to hire someone of this calibre onsite! Yet you get the best of both worlds – reliable, efficient and experienced staff, available around the clock, with no holiday or sick pay, no office politics, no equipment costs and no hassle!

Online assistance can also be used as and when you need it; do you need someone to type up reports at the end of each month? Do you have important letters or emails that have to be sent out each week or each day? Maybe you just need someone to set up an excel spread sheet or create a letter, email or form template, that you can customise and use for yourself. Having a virtual secretary on tap, means that you will always have an expert who is ready and willing to help you, with whatever you need and is just an email or phone call away. Regular use of a virtual assistant service will mean that things in the office will run more smoothly and efficiently, aid productivity and allow you to concentrate on expanding and progressing your business.

If you are thinking about hiring a virtual assistant or transcription service to help with your excess work or to help you build and establish a new company, it is always a good idea to do your research and find a company that fits your needs. Transcription City is happy to help any clients or potential clients who need expert advice or secretarial assistance to aid their workflow issues.
