You will be pleasantly surprised when you can buy your time back, allowing you to do what it is you do best- make decisions that impact the growth of your business.
A Virtual Assistant can Change Your Business- You’ll Be Surprised
“Our first pleasant surprise was that it worked. The system works very well. Second, the cost is half the price of unskilled labor in the States, and our virtual assistant is a notch above that. Lastly, the research project she took charge of allowed me to tailor my pitch and land an account that grossed our company 2-5 Million dollars in revenue this year.” Says Terry Shurtleff, CEO of Alaska Industrial Hardware, Inc. “I didn’t have the time to do the research or even evaluate the data before her- she has made that possible.”

Finding and Hiring the Right Fit
Being a part of the retail industry and looking to grow your business economically with an engaged, supportive employee is the goal. Onboarding new in-house talent is time-consuming, costly, and quite frankly exhausting. According to SHRM the average cost of hiring an employee is around $4,225 but can vary by position. Hiring the right individual to fit your business needs and your company’s culture is one of the most important decisions you can make as a leader, so you want to ensure that you are taking the correct steps in finding suitable candidates.
Provide your HR team with a helping hand by allowing MyOutDesk to provide 3-4 candidates who have gone through a rigorous vetting process with only top talent recruited for your specifications in experience, education, and skill. Once you have selected your new employee, they can start within days of hiring based on your mutually agreed start date.
