Agility and Speed of Hire

A 2014 study co-sponsored by Elance and oDesk found that in-house positions took an average of 43 days to fill — virtual jobs take an average of 3 days. (2014 oDesk study)

Find a company in today's business landscape that isn't pushing for more revenue, higher profits and lower costs. If you do, you probably won't find them in business in a year's time.

That's why smart leaders are looking seriously at how outsourced and virtual-team members can help them reach those goals. More and more, highly qualified virtual executive assistants (VEAs) are coming alongside senior leaders and mid-level managers to help them handle their administrative needs. Leaders are often struggling under the weight of expectations - at work, at home, in the marketplace - and they need an alternative for getting things done. Leaders who stop trying to do and be all things to all people and work alongside a trusted VEA are finding they're more productive, more focused and more peaceful.
