Transcript of "What Are Your Virtual Assistants Not Telling You"

  1. 1. What Are Your Virtual Assistants Not Telling You?! THE DISADVANTAGES OF REMOTE STAFFING
  2. 2. We often see and hear about the positive effects of remote staffing or outsourcing but it always wise to remember that nothing’s perfect.
  3. 3. With all its benefits, hiring a virtual assistant might also have a few downfalls.
  4. 4. Miscommunication is common. Most countries who provide outsourcing services don’t consider English as their mother tongue; this presents possible language barriers between VA and client. Another factor is the distance. Your employee will only be digitally present but physically absent. That thousand mile difference poses issues when it comes to the relaying of directives.
  5. 5. Being in another part of the globe, you will not have control over service providers or other factors that might affect their internet signals (weather, black outs, natural calamities, equipment failure). Internet Connectivity Issues
  6. 6. Privacy. Outsourcing means sharing possibly confidential information with external providers. This in itself might be a potential threat to your company security.
  7. 7. Cultural Differences. As compared to dealing with staff from your country, you might have to do a bit of adjusting when it comes to working with offshore staff just to avoid false impressions.
  8. 8. Having pros and cons in business is perfectly normal. The same is true when it comes to remote staffing. It’s not all winwin but there are many ways to reduce these negative aspects.
  9. 9. In the end, it’s a matter of decision making and the practical use of common sense. If you think that remote staffing can do good for your business, by all means, try it out!
