What is Virtual Talent?

072712 fpinfographic

The Virtual Talent idea is simple... you can have all the benefits of hiring a highly experienced and skilled individual or team - without any hassle of actually having a staff member.

Flat Planet takes care of all the complexities—where they sit, their computer, software, security and access, payroll, people issues and performance management. They will work each day doing virtual office work from Flat Planet’s office in Manila—you may think of it as a branch office.

Best of all, because we are located in a high-value talent market such as the Philippines, your virtual talent will open the door to options otherwise not available or unaffordable. The net result: you can grow your business and leverage your time like never before.

At a practical level, a virtual talent individual or team member is essentially a contractor based in a remote office who can provide you with an opportunity to tap directly into the global talent market and save on costs.

When talking Virtual Talent, we talk of a high-value, full-time employee that we will recruit and supply for your business based on your job description. What do we mean by high value? “High value” means a good educational background and extensive experience relevant to the tasks at hand. Any job that can be done on a computer can be done by a virtual talent. Your virtual talent will work 40 hours a week, starting at 9:00 a.m. and finishing at 6:00 p.m. in your time zone.
