Holiday mode: Activated!
Switch off and put your out of office on. Stay on track with professional business support.
Taking a break away from the office and completely switching off is essential for us all from time to time. When the time comes to book another holiday, worrying about how to cover essential office functions shouldn’t be a burden. When you are a small business owner it can cause concern and raise questions around who will handle your calls, reply to your emails and keep your projects running smoothly and optimally.
We can’t let go!
A 2018 poll from cloud accounting company FreeAgent highlighted that more than 90% of small-business owners admit to looking at work-related emails or doing work-related admin whilst away. In fact nearly two thirds (61%) said that they do so “regularly”.
Leave your business in safe hands.
It is possible to return to work feeling truly refreshed and revived. Relaxing whilst you are on your holiday in the knowledge that it’s “business as usual” in the office even though you aren’t present or readily available. Let a Virtual PA be your front of house whilst you fully embrace and treasure your precious downtime with family and/or friends.
A PA can;
- respond to emails on your behalf
- filter out the noise so you only come back to a list of priorities
- make a judgement call when that important client is trying to get through to you
- ensure your diary is kept clear on your return to ensure you can be productive on your return
- delegate on your behalf so work still progresses in your absence
Alternatively, what about when your PA is on annual leave and you need some help whilst they are out of the office?
Hiring a VA on an hourly pay as you go (PAYG) rate is an economical and efficient solution to filling the void, as you will only be charged for the hours that you use.
Here at Designated, our team of talented Virtual Assistants can manage a whole host of tasks in your absence or your regular PA’s absence. Plus, we will only ever contact you with anything absolutely urgent or anything that you’ve requested us to keep you informed about.
Aside from this we have one desire and that is for you to switch off and to fully focus on enjoying your holiday!
