On May 27th, 2022, Brett Trembly, attorney and co-founder of Get Staffed Up, was featured on Un-billable Hour Podcast. The Un-billable Hour Podcast is a law practice advisory podcast by Christopher Anderson. This is where you will get the information you need from expert guests and hosts on the Legal Talk Network. Chris has authored numerous articles and speaks on various topics, including law firm management, the ethics of cloud computing, and the future of technology in law firms.
In this great episode, Chris and Brett discuss insourcing offshore team members. Brett starts by explaining the difference between outsourcing and insourcing. Get Staffed Up insources team members, meaning that although they work for local law firms, legally, they remain Gett Staffed Up’s employees. The reason and benefit are that business owners don’t have to pay 40% on top of traditional domestic employment, which is the employment taxes and the overheads.
Build Your Hybrid Team
Changing the mindset is the first step to building a successful hybrid team. To realize that there are incredible people worldwide and acknowledge each other’s strengths. So, if you are competing against five businesses, why not show up one day with twice the amount of resources, twice the bandwidth, and half of the payroll? For every five people you hire through Get Staffed Up, you save $125,000 a year in payroll.
Furthermore, Brett and Chris talk about the changes they foresee in the industry. And one of the changes that Brett sees is related to law. It is possible that with new rules, hiring offshore talent will be more expensive. The opportunity is to hire now; the time is now. Lastly, Chris and Brett discuss some of the “coolest” tasks a virtual assistant has done for clients.
