Dec 17th 2015 at 9:18 PM

How do you know you made the right choice with your Virtual assistant? Or any assistant for that matter. Last week we shared 5 of the 10 aspects to look out for to ensure you have a good virtual assistant. If you want to see them, click here. Below you will find the other 5.

6. Diligence

A virtual assistant is known to be diligent if he or she is not being negligent with regards to his tasks, careful when acting out his responsibilities, and persistent about getting the job done. This person is the type of worker that propels themselves to work on their own without the need to be told what to do. He or she usually takes the initiative to accomplish what needs to be done.

7. Open-Mindedness

An employee who is open minded is not disapproving of other people’s ideas; which makes them approachable and easier to team up with. One who is open to new ideas and is susceptible to change has a higher chance of succeeding in the workplace. This is because he or she is able to see alternative solutions to a certain problem rather than being blindly fixated on their own ideas and beliefs. This also entails that he or she adapts to any situation, possesses a cooperative attitude, and easily adjusts to company changes.

8. Modesty

While it is normal for an assistant to be informative about their accomplishments, it is definitely a plus factor if he or she does this modestly and in a humble manner. A good employee knows the true significance of their achievements.

9. Trustworthiness

Since the virtual assistant is probably far away and is physically absent, a higher degree of trustworthiness is to be expected from him or her than those working in-house. Trust is proven to be a valuable currency in the professional field and is even more so in personal relationships.

10. Creativity

Creativity paves the way for innovative ideas which contribute to the competitive advantage of your firm. It has contributed to various original ideas that the company can use or that acts as solutions to a pressing situation. It is now a trend for companies to encourage creativity because it helps to maximize the skills and opinions of the employees that can have a positive impact on the company. Thus, it is imperative to look for a virtual assistant who exhibits creativity even before the hiring process.
