2. Eliminate headaches associated with freelance hires.

Rid yourself from the uncertainties and sometimes unprofessional conduct associated with hiring freelancers since the model itself caters to short-term work. Most entrepreneurs need someone more permanent and reliable for long-term tasks.

3. Cut staffing costs.

Not only can you save money in salaries, but also in overhead costs such as office space rentals, ancillary services, information technology (laptops, hardware and software), office supplies and much more. When you employ a virtual staff, you can run a successful business from anywhere in the world — even your own backyard.

4. Do away with the hassles of recruitment and hiring.

A virtual employee is legally employed by an outsourcing company, so you are not in any way responsible for a virtual employee. All of the hiring, employment legal issues,  human resources issues (benefits, time-off, etc.) and IT concerns are handled by a virtual staffing service provider — not you.

5. Enjoy the benefits of outsourcing without the uncertainty.

Since a virtual employee works out of a physical office with HR management supervision, and constant monitoring, the questions of tardiness and missed deadlines are a non issue. When you hire virtual employees, you are outsourcing but technically your team still remains within your control. Sounds good right?

6. Expand your home-based operations.

If you are launching a new startup, hiring one or more virtual employees can quickly help you scale operations. You can run a multinational small business from the comfort of your home.

The key thing to remember is that a virtual employee, when managed through a service provider, is as real as a local employee and technology takes care of the rest!
