Global Office Works: Why Hire a Virtual Assistant to Micromanage Your Business

From humble beginnings, Global Office Works have come a long way from when it first started. From an office of one client and one VA, we are now growing consistently and expanding our services to better serve our clients.

It can’t be denied that the best way to climb the ladders of a successful business is to micromanage your tasks and delegate them to a few trustworthy assistants. What better way to do so than hire one that won’t cost you additional office space and for a fraction of the rates you normally pay for a local employee. Global Office Works offer great services be it in sales or in virtual assistance for only $7.95 per hour or $800 per month. What’s great about this is we offer a 1 week trial, risk free! This includes an associate’s orientation, training and task assignment. This also means that we won’t charge anything if you aren’t 100% satisfied with our services. This is definitely one sure way to see if the team or associate our company have picked out for you works with your dynamics.

Global Office Works have been in the BPO business for 5 years now and the struggle of maintaining a tight-knit company of below 50 people. This can be cumbersome specially for those who haven’t ventured into managing a virtual office yet. There must be a careful mix of good work ethics and camaraderie to ensure that the company can last. Seeing that GLOW has been established a half decade ago is a testament that we can definitely go further when it comes to providing world class services to our clients.

Below is a short piece by our President and CEO, Rodney Allen, talking about how it all started.

When I started GLOW in August 2012, I thought it would be easy. What was I thinking? Easy?

Starting a new business in the middle of the Global Financial Crisis, in a new unfamiliar country with a completely different culture! Nevertheless, it has been a great experience.

After owning a real estate company in Colorado for over 20 years, I envisioned GLOW to provide a specialized service to Realtors at a cost effective price. Working with Real Estate agents, I know that most great salespeople are terrible at managing the administrative details. So GLOW was born to provide the administrative support that every good salesperson needs.

In 2012, the industry was just beginning to get exposed to “Virtual” assistants. The technology such as Google Drive enabling multiple parties to work on the same files was just getting started. We had to learn these tools and then teach them to our clients.

The biggest hurdle was adapting to a new culture. Things are different in the Philippines and doing it the ‘American way’ just didn’t work. Filipinos are social people who like to work together in teams. This is one of the many reasons why individual home based VA’s do not usually succeed in servicing their clients needs. Once I created this team environment, GLOW was successful.

We are now pleased to serve several different industries in the Business Services sector; real estate, finance and insurance.

So why then should you rely on Global Office Works’ team of associates? Because we can assure you that our team share the same goal: producing results that can raise your standards in micromanaging your business. The synergy we share within our office is a passion to build up each member of our staff to their full potential as this will not only benefit our company, but our clients, too.
