As companies grow in size, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay on top of the daily tasks necessary to keep the business running. When employees wear many hats in a quick-moving environment, it can be tricky to keep operations and administrative needs running smoothly. But hiring full-time, on-site support staff isn’t always an option, either—and that’s where virtual assistants step in.

Virtual assistants have existed for as long as technology has facilitated remote work, but the trend has increased rapidly in recent years; in fact, Business Wire estimates that the virtual assistants’ market size will reach $25.6 billion by 2025. They are especially beneficial when many teams are spread out and employees are working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is because virtual assistants can work from anywhere and can often perform a variety of tasks on a flexible contract. With low overhead and limited commitment, virtual assistants are a cost-effective staffing solution for companies of all sizes.

But what exactly is a virtual assistant, and how can you employ one to streamline operations at your company?

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is a remote employee who offers administrative support for you and your business, usually part-time. They can do tasks that an executive assistant would typically handle, such as scheduling appointments, making phone calls, arranging travel, or organizing emails. They usually work as an independent contractor, although some are hired as full-time remote workers. Virtual assistants are employed by companies of all sizes and across many industries.


Our remote team of professionals breaks the endless, and exhausting, “hustle cycle” of business ownership, allowing you the freedom to choose how your time is best spent.
