With Danco.Work

Why Outsource

To decide if Virtual Employment is for you, you may first need to understand exactly what it means.

Also commonly known as outsourcingit is a business practice in which a company hires another company or an individual to perform tasks, handle operations or provide quality services at a fraction of a cost (usually 1/3).

There are a few different types of Virtual Recruiting Models, please review the benefits below and select that suits your business needs the best.

REMOTE WORKING culture IN 2020 & BEYOND

Twitter announces employees will be allowed to work from home ‘forever’ ~ The Guardian, 12th May, 2020. 

With working remotely becoming a new norm world-wide, hiring virtual employees now may offer many benefits than ever. They are generally 70% more cost effective than domestic employees and can offer the flexibility to multi-task across many aspects of your business. If you are considering giving virtual employment a try, Danco.Work can help make the hiring process easier, efficient & cost effective.

Some of benefits are stated as follows: 

TIME IS YOUR GOLDMINE

The most valuable asset anyone has today is time, and money only comes in second. Successful businesses recognise that time is the best asset to keep a tight grip on. 

Without time to think strategically, forge new relationships, and develop ideas, all you have is a business that refuses to grow regardless of how much you work at it. And entrepreneurs that spend their days locked in low-level administrative tasks like email management and customer support are joking themselves that they have any chance of growing a successful company. 

COST-EFFECTIVE 

Business Scalability & Business Growth requires capital. By hiring virtual assistants, you can substantially reduce your capital needs. Not only is the cost of hiring a virtual assistant substantially less than hiring domestically (for most Western nations), but the ongoing costs of management and development are also considerably less.

MAINTAIN ENTREPRENEURIAL SANITY

One of the key things for entrepreneurial success is mindset, but we all don't do the mindset thing very well! 

If you find your tasks or to-do lists piling up, you are ending up scattered and achieving less and you are getting a little too overwhelmed with the things you need to do for your business, then here’s an insight:

Our carefully selected & recruited Virtual Employee can help you with all of that!

ESCAPE THE ADMIN JUNGLE

Some of the most common administrative tasks that a hired virtual assistant can do for you are:

  • Administrative and office support activities for multiple  supervisors
  • Receptionist tasks such as fielding telephone calls and managing appointment bookings 
  • Responding to emails and helping to filter them for easier management 
  • Word processing, creating spreadsheets and presentations 
  • Organising your Dropbox and Google Drive folders.

Internet research, Data mining and entry also made in top 10 admin tasks best delegated to a virtual employee. 

STREAMLINE YOUR BUSINESS OPERATIONS

This is our personal favourite! Because your virtual employees work remotely, it forces both sides to increase the focus on efficient processes, effective communication, and advanced reporting channels. This is how you can really use virtual assistants to help grow your business.

MAINTAIN A KILLER ONLINE STRATEGY

In this age of mobile technology where social media, video, and content marketing have become the norm, it’s expected that every business has an online presence. Virtual employees are a fantastic resource in this area. All things are digital by nature, online and ‘virtual’. Hence the concept of having a virtual person implementing and maintaining this strategy for you becomes much easier with Danco.Work.

AVOID SELLING YOUR SOUL TO YOUR BUSINESS

Let’s be honest, hiring a virtual assistant to help manage, oversee, and do tasks on your list helps ease the workload and stress you face in the day-to-day operations of your business. At the same time, it also allows you more leisure time with your family and friends. So, you are basically taking back your social life.

INCREASE THE ASSET VALUE OF YOUR BUSINESS

When done right, working with virtual teams forces you to develop very strong, efficient processes and solid communication and to utilise technology in more creative ways. 

Once you hone each of these areas and ensure tasks can be delegated to anyone who steps in, it means your business is systematised. This creates a far more valuable asset if you ever decided to sell the business.

Saving a further up to 49% on a typical virtual employee working from Danco.Work Office, if your work is not highly sensitive and you believe it can be done from anywhere other than a professional office, then the benefits do not stop here.

• There is no commute

• There is greater flexibility

• Reduce distractions

•  The day is often less stressful

• Save money

Project Based Outsourcing

This approach to offshoring involves paying someone overseas (often a freelancer from Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr and similar portals) to complete a project with a limited scope and duration.

This might work for you if you only have one-off projects that require specialist knowledge/skills, rather than long-term, ongoing work. We usually find this works for start-ups and micro businesses who are on very limited budgets.

The main downside is that you have little control over when and how your freelance completes the work, so you’ll need to build a buffer into any timelines in case of potential delays. Furthermore, you don’t have control over the capacity planning of your vendor, so you can never be sure who’ll be working on your project, from one day to the next. And because the vendor has to contend with varying demand for their services, they’ll be busy one month and quiet the next, and they’ll factor this into their pricing, resulting in higher project rates than you’d pay a dedicated resource. (i.e. You’ll pay more to cover their quiet times.)

With Danco.Work, sourcing a project-based virtual employee minimises friction and helps you meet deadlines agreed initially with your virtual project manager. 


What some of the leading minds say about outsourcing...

“It is true that outsourcing does cause an immediate loss of jobs, but these are more than made up for by the creation of new jobs,” Paul O'Neill, former U.S. Treasury Secretary.


“It would be foolish to stop companies from outsourcing. It would make our companies less competitive,” Robert B. Reich, former Labour Secretary under President Bill Clinton, comments on the outsource industry.

“If we are not realistic about what we are good at then there is a chance of going backwards in the face of further competition...Innovative companies need to look at which things they should do offshore and what they should do at home,” Bill Gates, Microsoft chief.
