Remotely Assisting Businesses On Reaching Their Full Potential!
Headquartered in Tracyton, Washington, The Help was established in late 2008, the result of a series of successful work in the Virtual Assistance industry. Three other offices, one in Singapore and two in the Philippines, comprise its global reach in pursuing its goal to enhance operational functions and to boost the competitive edge of small to medium sized companies.
The Help’s virtual services is an asset to clients because it eliminates fixed costs (office space, labor, etc.), delegates transactional services, and most important, frees valuable time for management to focus on developing their business. All these translate to company growth, our common goal.
Elance (now Upwork), the marketplace for freelancers, ranks The Help second, nationwide (among 3,000 companies) and 4thth worldwide (10,316 companies), in the category of Administrative Support.
Our clients are located in the United States of America, Australia, Germany, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
My name is Astrid Stanek; I was a part time Virtual Assistant as well as an elementary school teacher in the mid-2000. Having succeeded in providing administrative support to various clients, I started The Help. My focus and great attitude on assignments produced excellent output. As a result, my clients trust me, which translated to a continuing, thriving work relationship. With the increase of many companies’ administrative functions coupled with the ongoing outsourcing climate, the need for virtual administrative support grew as well.
