What is Virtual Talent? Virtual Talent is usually self-employed professionals who provide administrative, technical, or creative assistance to businesses from their home office or a virtual location. Because virtual talent are independent contractors rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits. Clients also avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space, equipment or supplies. Clients pay for 100% productive work, and can work with Virtual Talent, individually, or in a multi-virtual talent firm to meet their exact needs. So, how can virtual talent benefit your business? Since virtual talent depends on satisfying their client's needs, you can be assured of high quality work. Virtual talent can support their clients on an "as needed" basis, for less than the cost of hiring a permanent or temporary employee. You only pay for the time your virtual talent spends assisting you and your business. Keep in mind you don't have to supply office space or equipment, and you won't be charged for personal calls or time spent socializing with peers. Also you won't have to pay social security or employee taxes. How can PredictiveTalent help my business?
