There are literally hundreds of VA companies out there right now, but not all of them will treat you the way you should be treated as an employee. And before I lay out the reasons why Global OfficeWorks should be your career choice and why it’s the home of the best and most self-reliant virtual assistants, let me introduce myself and share my story.

I am Carlo Vergara, 25, a digital marketing specialist, and one of the tenured folks in the company. As someone who started out timid and unsure, I never thought I would come this far. When I applied for a position, I honestly didn’t have the experience that they were expecting me to have. I was a customer service associate in a medical account for almost 2 years, had a little background in photo and video editing, and that’s all I knew. I never had experience doing admin and marketing tasks for clients. In short, I knew nothing about being a VA. At that time, I remember they were looking for admin assistants and digital marketing specialists and I was a master of none of those. But they must have seen my potential because I surprisingly got the job and was requested to start as soon as possible.

Fast forward to when I already started ‘training’, I was flabbergasted at how fast everything goes down in the office. On the first day I took a few exams, the next day I was bombarded with training courses, on the third day an overview was given and voila, I already went hands-on with the person with who I got partnered with. Long story short, I started as an admin assistant for 2 clients and eventually got re-profiled to digital marketing. I survived.

I had an extremely hard time when I started because I had to figure some things out on my own. Did I appreciate it at that time? No. But now when I look back at it, I actually feel grateful because I was somehow required to take the first step in practicing self-sufficiency. And as time went on, I have come to realize that it’s what GLOW makes you. Self-sufficient, self-reliant, and self-supporting. I don’t mean to say that you’re not going to have the support you will be needing in case you work here because of course, the support will always be there, just not to the point when you will be spoon-fed.

In a nutshell, this company is best at molding employees to be able to provide solutions to problems without having to rely too much on others.

Aside from teaching me how to be self-sufficient, the next thing I love about working in this company is that it makes sure that you get your effort’s worth. Meaning GLOW makes sure that you are paid for EVERY SINGLE WORK you do and that you’re happy with how much you’re getting. We have all these rewards and bonuses for those who take their work seriously.

Here are some:

  • Monthly Performance Bonus – VIP (Variable Incentive Pay)
  • Annual Performance Bonus
  • Skills Incentive Bonus (SIB)
  • Admin Assistant Bonus
  • Inside-Sales-Agent Bonus (ISAB)
  • Referral Bonus
  • Tenure Salary Increase

This is one of the main reasons why I stay. More than the money, I feel like my efforts are acknowledged and my work is appreciated. This company is totally generous in terms of giving gratuity as long as you perform and deliver well.

Another thing that I absolutely love about working here is that they let you take a break from all the hustle and bustle by coming up with fun activities for everybody in and outside of work.

Here are some:

  • Small gathering for Valentine’s
  • Quarterly Outing (Out of town – Taking effect soon)
  • Company Anniversary Party (Taking effect soon)
  • Summer Outing (Out of town)
  • Halloween Costume Party (In the office) 
  • Christmas Party (In the office)
  • Year-End Party (Out of town)
  • Awarding of the best employee for the month

I love how we’re not always about pleasing clients and making money. It’s also important for us to loosen up and keep our life pleasurable and Global OfficeWorks tries very hard to help us with that.

One last thing is that the company goes the extra mile to make us feel cared for, and I appreciate that a lot. I love how they find ways to provide the best treatment for their employees.

One of the simple things they do for us is they provide free meals in the office 6 days a week. We can choose whatever kind of food we want for that week as long as it’s within budget. Now that may not be the grandest gesture in the world but not all companies do that.

I stated a few reasons why it’s best for you to work here but trust me there’s a lot more.

If you want to…..

  1. Enhance your skills
  2. Push your limits
  3. Grow as a person
  4. Grow as a career person
  5. Earn and have fun at the same time

Or you want to feel…..

  1. Valued
  2. Appreciated
  3. Secured
  4. Challenged
  5. Motivated
  6. Encouraged

then this is the right place for you. I have been here for a long time and I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. I almost feel like I’m not working anymore, to be honest. Because everybody in the office tries to make things light as much as possible and we are permitted to have fun at work which I think helps as well in making us better performers at our jobs.

I encourage you to join the growing family! This is definitely a place where you feel like you belong. The job, of course, is just like any other job which isn’t always rainbows and sunshine, there will also be times of storm and stress but I assure you, you will always have people that will help you get through.

Remember, Global OfficeWorks has an entire management team in place to support you. Whenever we can be of any assistance, please reach out to us at any time.
