    Too small for outsourcing?
    Take advantage of the same benefits with V-Employ service.
    Business Process Outsourcing is a process of offshoring companie's “non core” departments to a third party. Virttia enables SMEs to take advantage of the same benefits which multinational corporations gain from BPO outsourcing. With V-Employ, small to medium sized firms in can directly hire full time, dedicated and permanent employees in Poland. You simply use our office facilities as an extension of your own office. The logistics entailed in bpo outsourcing are removed with Virttia. Virttia provides companies with “virtual” employees who work directly for you from Poland. You can hire an employee in any office field of work; technical or non technical e.g. programming, graphics design, engineer, accounts, HR, payroll, virtual secretary, internet researcher, data entry…etc.

    Find proactive, qualified staff with European background and language skills.
    Poland is not simply an 'alternative offshore location', as its value-proposition is not only driven by lower cost, but by highly-motivated and educated staff, and is a proven first-class hub for multi-lingual European language support. Companies have found not only cost savings using Polish delivery resources - they have used them because of the value and quality they bring to their business.

    Employ your virtual employees in Poland at fraction of cost.
    Virttia prices are significantly lower than the cost of hiring a similar employee in the US or Europe. Hence, you can expand your team without a need for so much capital or transition some of your positions fully to Virttia to lower your costs and gain competitive advantage.
