VirtualEmployee.com goes above and beyond other virtual assistant companies in that they set you up with a full-time dedicated remote employee, at a fraction of what one would cost locally.
You can specify your requirements in advance and VirtualEmployee.com will send you the resumes of qualified candidates so you can screen them or even interview them yourself. This feature alone sets VirtualEmployee apart from its competition.
The cost of your Virtual Employee will vary based on their level of experience and skills. A legal professional or web developer will command a higher salary than general administrative support. The overall price range for VirtualEmployee.com’s service is $1095 – $1995 a month.
And that is a key point to make as well – even though your remote worker will be working only for you, he or she is technically an employee of VirtualEmployee.com, not your company. That means they handle all the tax filing, payroll processing, and labor law management so you don’t have to. As you can see, it is a very valuable service and can be useful for any work that does not require a physical presence.
Since starting in 2007, VirtualEmployee.com has grown to a large team that now serves over 100 companies around the world. Their founding principle of “same quality but significantly lower cost” seems to have translated into a successful business model.
Because they have to source an employee specifically for you, VirtualEmployee.com service can take a couple weeks to get started. After that however, there is no long term commitment or contract to sign. I was surprised by this, especially because rival VirtualHires.com requires a 4-month commitment. Of course, VirtualEmployee.com wants to impress you with their professionalism and results to maintain a lasting relationship.
VirtualEmployee.com also has half-time options and discounts for hiring multiple workers. You can choose the office hours of your virtual employee to meet your needs.
