Different fields may give different benefits based on your work and what company you work for. Some people find 401K’s and health insurance to be perks, others find two weeks paid vacation to be a perk.
For many virtual assistants, the perks do not come in the tangible form of vacation or a savings plan, but in the idea of being free from an office and free to come and go–as long as the work is being done. The freedom is whatever you make of it, whether it be working out of a coffee shop every day or being able to wear comfy pants while you work. Below are some of the main reasons many enter the field of virtual assisting and some virtual assistant perks.
Working From Home
Working from home is a major benefit to those who work as virtual administrators. You can roll out of bed, jump on the computer and sit with a cup of coffee and no one would know the difference.
This lifestyle works very well for women who want to be a stay-at-home mom, those who may have a disability that prevents them from commuting or even college students who want to start a meaningful career but do not have the time to go into an office.
Anyone needing a little bit of freedom from the 9-5 rat race can truly benefit from the idea of working from home. You save money on your commute, you do not need an entire wardrobe of office clothes and you can be around those you love a bit more if they are also home with you.
