A lot of small business owners, solo entrepreneurs and startups in Australia have adapted the remote business model. It’s easy, cost effective and takes your business to a different level at a much faster timeline. Filipino virtual assistants are not new to the remote work set up, as the virtual assistant network has been in the Philippines’s economic pipeline for over a decade. This means that you will not need to spend so much time in getting your VA acclimated to the kind of virtual work set up you intend to employ. A lot of people may also be hesitant at first, but it is unbelievable how a number of Australians had wished they had made the decision to hire a Filipino VA sooner, rather than later. These are some of the top traits of a Filipino VA that our clients from all over Australia love!
Professional, but fun loving
In general, Filipinos are very professional, but also love to have fun. The culture is quite similar to Australia in the sense that they show a huge deal of professionalism in their role and tasks. They do not give in to workplace politics, keep calm under pressure and most importantly, meet the deadlines of their tasks.

Inevitably, there will be times that you will need to give feedback and constructive criticism to your VA’s work. There will be times when your VA may have missed to work on something or may have possibly done something incorrectly, letting them know that their work needs improvement is sorting that they are very open to. Unlike others, Filipino virtual assistants are humble and understand that no matter how long they have been in the remote work industry, they shrill have flaws and need to work on a number of improvements.
