It’s no secret, everyone is able to do admin, but is it the most effective use of your time?
Yes you may be able to create your own newsletter, type a letter, format a document, build a PowerPoint presentation and update your website, however a person who specialises in administration would probably take less time to do the job as they would be focusing on what they are good at.
Ask yourself a couple of questions:
- do I enjoy administration
- am I good at administration
- is doing my own administration it the most effective way to use my time
If you answered no to any of these questions, then maybe it’s time to consider an alternative solution to get your admin done so you can focus on the tasks that allow you to better utilise your time and stop spending so much time in the office.
There are a number of options to consider a full-time assistant, a part-time assistant a temporary assistant or a Virtual Assistant. While these are all great options a Virtual Assistant (VA) has some great benefits including support being provided on an as needed basis, a VA has extensive office experience so no training or recruiting costs, and you only pay for the time worked and not for unproductive time or coffee breaks and no need to pay sick or annual leave or superannuation.
