Tis the season to be dishing out holidays… which can have a crippling impact on your business, especially if you have any seasonal offers.
Wize, as always, has the solution! Here are our top do’s and don’ts of dealing with holiday cover!
DON’T try to take on the work yourself
You might think you have the time, but if you had to hire someone in the first place, chances are you’re already busy enough. A virtual assistant can be paid per call or by the hour so you’ll only be paying for what you need.
DON’T pass work on to other departments
As above, if you have separate employees for separate tasks then there’s probably a good reason for it. If you pass work onto someone who doesn’t have the time or expertise to get the job done quickly and correctly then you’re wasting money and will be making both your team and customers unhappy. Which leads us to….
DON’T hinder your customer service!
Getting stressed because you’re taking on extra work can leave you short tempered and prone to mistakes. You may also find yourself missing calls, be late in responding to emails and find your standard of work slipping.
DON’T spend time training temporary staff
Spending your valuable time training up temporary employees can be a huge drain, but with a virtual assistant, you don’t have to worry about training someone from scratch as they will already be well versed in call answering etiquette and a wide range of administration tasks.
