You can expect them to clock in on time, be mindful of daily attendance and be present in meetings.

Excellent Communicators

Due to the high level of English Proficiency of Filipino VA’s, effective communication skills – speaking, writing and reading are expected. Their ability to communicate well with the stakeholders of your practice is an asset that is highly considered. Also, this includes the ability to navigate through various mediums of communication like text messaging platforms, phone calls, emails and at times project management software.

Organized and Able Multitaskers

Filipino VA’s consider proper time and project management as an integral part of an organized worker. They make use of time blocking, make a list of priorities and stick to agreed-upon work hours. They find ways to organize work according to the needs of your practice. Working multiple tasks/projects at a time without sacrificing the quality of output delivered.

Works well Under Pressure

Things may get chaotic at times but the Filipino VA understands that instances may occur when there’s a short turn-around time or a higher workload than normal. That even if sometimes there is a presence of chaos within the practice, patients/clients should not see what’s happening behind the scenes. This also includes the ability to refrain from passing negativity or stress to them even if it is unintentional.

Great with Follow Up

Filipino VA’s stay on top of all their tasks, even when sometimes you do not. Things may fall through the cracks at times within the practice, but a VA should possess the know-how to reach out and follow up – rather than just sitting on that task forever. It is something our VA’s are good at.
