There are many different holidays worldwide, and each one can potentially cause work disruptions for virtual assistant companies in the Philippines. The Philippines has several holidays, but Filipino VAs tend to continue working for their clients even during such holidays because their foreign clients’ holidays are different from the virtual assistant’s. December’s holiday season is a common slow season for many countries. There will likely be payment delays as banks go on holidays, so freelancers and VAs must know how to use the holidays to their advantage.
A holiday is an excellent time for people to take some time off and rest. Working can be stressful, especially if the freelancer somehow gets involved with a toxic client. It’s important to notify the client first before going on vacation so both the client and freelancer can work out how they can accomplish all their tasks without compromising anyone’s schedule.
If resting isn’t in the freelancer’s itinerary, they can use the holidays to look for more jobs from both old and new clients who need to continue their operations during a holiday. Besides working, freelancers can also use the slow period to upgrade their equipment to improve work quality with employee time clock app. Many businesses hire a Filipino virtual assistant because they know that Filipinos provide high-quality work for cheap, allowing companies to receive quality work at a low cost.
It’s vital to know how freelancers can use the holidays to their advantage to better their careers. See this infographic by OVA Virtual to know more about how to prepare for the holidays.
