Outsourcing means having people work for you from across the globe. Most of the time, you see each other in video calls.
It’s a rare opportunity to meet your VAs, and when you do, it’s more likely that you visited them in their home country.
I recently had a rarer opportunity to have been visited by my VA here in the US! Yes! One of my long time VAs was in the country to visit his family, and made an effort to also come and see me.
Ezekiel has been a VA for OnlineJobs.ph for 9 years now. He started out in data entry and SEO tasks, to being in customer service, to doing almost anything and everything that I would ask him to do.
I have always thought that his nickname was pronounced as “Ki-yel”, but I’ve been wrong for so long! He tells me it’s “Kel”. This is one of the perks in having a face to face communication — you find out the right way to address a person.
Another good thing about Kiel’s visit was that I got to meet his family. I mean, how often would an employer meet his VAs family, right? I even drove them to see and play with snow!
But you know what the best part during Kiel’s visit was? It was the time we had spent together talking about what I could do to make him and his fellow VAs follow my instructions easier.
