THE ERA OF VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS
A trend that began during the 2008 global economic crisis, and has maintained pace ever since, is predicted to accelerate in the decade to come: The offshore virtual assistant is THE future substitute for the traditional in-house employee.
The rise of the Virtual Assistance industry has forever changed the way companies and entrepreneurs do business. Today, armed with just a laptop and an internet connection, we can now operate a full-fledged business.
Virtual assistants are professionals that remotely provide a wide variety of services to companies. They can work in practices such as social media marketing, graphic design, video editing, copy-writing, project management, accounting and many other areas of expertise.
More and more companies are starting to hire virtual assistants for various reasons.
With that said, we have all the reasons to believe that there’ll be more virtual assistants in 2020.
Looking at outsourcing trends in 2020, the future looks bright for virtual teams.
The growing awareness has been skyrocketing. If you said the words “freelancer," “virtual staff" or “outsourcing" years back, most people would give you puzzled looks. But remote workers are slowly becoming common knowledge across all sectors. The outsourcing industry has grown to $105 Billion. 20 years ago, it was only $45 Billion.
And outsourcing is no longer just limited to businesses with online operations. Even non-profits and people in the medical field are starting to hire virtual staff. As the outsourcing market grows, we will see more businesses employ offshore staff to provide services.

The Philippines’ outsourcing industry is one of today’s fastest growing. In a matter of 13 years, the industry has grown 46 percent and is currently experiencing an annual growth rate of 20 percent.
There has rarely ever been a scarcity of quality virtual assistants and freelancers since the beginning of the internet. And as more developing countries improve their technology, we will continue to have a great supply of offshore professionals for sure.
