“The intelligent virtual assistant market size was valued at $ 3,442 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $ 44,255 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 37.7% from 2020 to 2027” (source: alliedmarketresearch.com).
Now, if those stats surprised you for a bit then you must be wondering what is this mammoth world of virtual assistance that’s going to impact us so much. Well, you can thank the internet for this wonder development. Virtual Assistance as the name states is giving assistance virtually! It refers to a remote work model, by which experts of a profession lend out their services (at a price) to people needing help with their office or business tasks. For example, a PHP developer who is a virtual assistant can design a mobile app for your business, without any hassles of recruitment. You can get your task done as per your need, pay the virtual assistant and you are good to go. It’s that easy.
You may ask what is the point of virtual assistance when the pandemic has long gone and we are back in our offices. Well, well. Let us stop you there with these stats, “In May 2021, a Mercer study found that 70% of companies said they were planning to adopt the hybrid model. Many companies have already made the switch, including prominent brands such as Adobe, Salesforce, Spotify, and Twitter. And Microsoft’s Work Trend Index (published in March 2021) found that 66% of employers around the world are redesigning their workplaces to accommodate hybrid work arrangements” (source: flexjobs.com). While you wrap your head around that, we have got some more data for you, “According to FlexJobs’ 10th Annual Survey (conducted between July and August 2021), 58% of respondents report wanting to be full-time remote employees post-pandemic, while 39% want a hybrid work environment. That’s an astounding 97% of workers who desire some form of remote work!” (source: flexjobs.com). Yes, that is what our world is heading towards in terms of virtual environment work. This indicates that the culture of virtual assistance is soon going to be the norm, as more and more people will begin freelancing their services.
