How To Work With An Executive Assistant In A Different Time Zone

To successfully hire and work with a remote executive assistant, you follow these key steps:

  • Understand your needs

Clearly identify the tasks and workload you want your executive assistant to handle.

  • Document processes

Create an action plan and provide detailed instructions for the tasks you want your assistant to perform.

  • Research your options

Explore freelancing platforms and managed services to find the best fit for your business.

  • Check procedures

Review the companies you've shortlisted, considering pricing, work hours, communication channels, and privacy policies.

  • Interview the assistant

Evaluate skills, experience, problem-solving abilities, attention to detail, and motivation to ensure a good fit.

  • Discuss availability

Determine the assistant's work hours, availability during weekends or holidays, and expectations for task allocation.

  • Discuss tech and security requirements:

Ensure the assistant has the necessary tools, software access, and security measures in place.

And since you are on different sides of the world, always remember to:

  • Establish a schedule and set boundaries with your remote executive assistant. Define your availability, expected response times, and maintain consistency to avoid work encroaching on personal time.
  • Establish clear communication channels. Determine the preferred methods of communication that work for both of you.
  • Be mindful of time zone differences. Understand the time zone difference between you and your executive assistant. Respect their working hours, consider overlapping working hours.
  • And lastly, recognize that flexibility is key when working across time zones. Be willing to adjust schedules or deadlines when necessary to accommodate the time zone difference and ensure a smooth workflow.
