recruiting retention

Would you agree that the only thing worse than trying to recruit the right person is trying to keep the right person? Imagine spending all of the time, energy, and resources to find that ideal fit, only to lose them shortly after and have to start the process all over again. No one wants to go through that, especially after finding out that they don’t even have to. Well, that’s what you’re finding out right now. With a MyOutDesk virtual assistant, you don’t have to go through that, ever. We go through it so that you don’t have to. And that’s what we’re going to cover here; why and how you can stop wasting time and money trying to find that perfect fit. Because we already did, and they’re ready to work for you right now.

Just The Facts

The average time to hire in the US is 43 days, in other words almost two months. The average length of time to go from requesting a MyOutDesk virtual assistant to having one at your disposal, ready to work; is 14 days or less. That’s less than half the time. How do we do it? Let’s take a quick look at our process…

Training Day

Clark Sandlin is a business owner who saw the value of outsourcing done right and has been using two of our virtual assistants. And just this week he added a third to his team! One of the most common concerns we hear from interested clients is regarding the onboarding process. People worry that training their virtual assistants remotely will take extra time and be less effective. The truth is our professionals are verified to be experienced, tech-savvy, strong English speakers, and fast learners. They’re often familiar with the same platforms used across various industries in the US. So they can jump in and hit the ground running after just a bit of education on your own processes. It’s all part of the benefits of a blended business model, which we cover in greater detail HERE if you’d like to learn even more.

“Our MOD virtual assistants finished their internal training and SOPs in 2 days, while our local team hires typically take 2 weeks.” – Clark Sandlin, President, and CEO of Zyrka
