Isn’t it more expensive than hiring an on-site business manager?
Actually no, it’s not. At first glance when just comparing rates it appears so, but as we all know some appearances can be deceiving. By retaining TCB, our clients realize savings in several areas, including:
Employee Benefits – We are business owners and not employees. Your business is not responsible for payroll taxes, social security, Medicare, insurance, sick pay, vacation, or profit sharing.
Office Overhead – We have a fully equipped office. We purchase our own software and equipment and provide our own office space.
Downtime – We only invoice our clients for time spent on tasks for your business. TCB does not bill for time-wasters such as coffee breaks, water cooler chats, internet surfing, or work day lulls.
Oversight Management – TCB produces results and stays on task. No idle time is being spent waiting for instruction and your time is not spent managing our work day.
Training – We can hit the ground running. We are always learning new skills to enhance our business and yours.
Why not contract a temp agency on an as needed basis?
For certain tasks – catching up on filing or covering for a receptionist’s vacation – hiring from a temp agency will get you over a hump. What about tasks that need a higher level of assistance and reflect directly on you and your business? When projects hit a time crunch and you need assistance quickly, do you have time to train a temp?
The downside of utilizing a temp agency is that:
you never get the same person twice
you do not know the degree of professionalism and integrity the temp will have
you spend your valuable time training and overseeing their work
On the upside, retaining a Virtual Business Manager from TCB, you:
Always get the same person
NEVER have to train or oversee our work
Know we are ready to step-in and assist
