You’ve Hired Your New VA. Now What? – Initial Hiring Communication

I wanted to share my outsourcing knowledge with other entrepreneurs. So when I started sharing what I know, I also created a video series of outsourcing tips. It has been my dream that everyone who outsourced had a great experience.

I’m bringing back the series of tips with new information I’ve learned over the years and new resources I’ve developed with my team.

The third outsourcing tip I want to share with you is how to do your initial hiring communication.

So let’s say you’ve found the perfect VA for you, and you’re ready to integrate that person into your team, what should you tell them first?

Be transparent. You should tell them about:

  • they’ve landed a job,
  • your expectations,
  • the terms,
  • daily communications,
  • time or days off,
  • give the first task,
  • salary,
  • benefits,
  • long-term expectations, and
  • onboarding requirements.

I also share my thoughts about using contracts.

Whether you’re new at outsourcing or you’ve hired a couple of VAs already, I know you’ll get something useful in this video, so don’t miss it.

You can also check out more tips with my new free ebook, OutsourcingLever. It’s out now! Read about how I learned to #OutsourceBetter over the years and how other business owners have done it as well.

      Hi Annaliza,

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, even Filipinos based outside the Philippines may apply. But they must agree to be paid in Philippine peso and the salaries will be based on Philippines salaries.
