Employee Appreciation Day is celebrated on the first Friday of March. As its name might state, this day encourages employers to give thanks or recognition to their employees. At Job Duck, we acknowledge the effort our virtual assistants put into their day-to-day work. For this very reason, we want to cherish all of our VAs today, for the amazing talent you bring to the team and to our clients.
It all started with an idea
A few years ago, this company was nothing more than an idea that came up at a lunch between two colleagues. During this lunch, they discussed how one of them had hired a virtual assistant who lived overseas, had a strong work ethic and a good level of English. In other words, she is a valuable asset. On the assistant’s part, she not only enjoyed working from home but additionally received a competitive salary! It was a truly win-win situation.
Seeing the amazing talent and potential of professionals overseas, the two colleagues spent months developing a process to find, filter, and hire incredible people internationally. They liked the result so much that they decided to partner up and build a business. In 2018 Job Duck was founded, and the rest is history!
Started With Five
We began this amazing journey with five incredible people. We strived for and reached 50 more. Then, from 50, we sparked to reach 100 talented virtual assistants, each working endlessly to help us grow to over 500 incredible people and counting!
We are proud to say that every individual in our company walks the extra mile to help us reach our dream of becoming the United States’ most recognizable staffing company.
Matching our core-values
At Job Duck, our virtual assistants prepare themselves mentally and physically each morning to conquer the day. Therefore, they are organized, efficientd and never settle for mediocre. In addition, they go above and beyond, providing extra value at every opportunity.
Our virtual assistants overcome whatever challenge may lie ahead with their experiences, knowledge, skills, and resources. We are passionate about growth in our personal and professional lives. Our virtual assistants are accountable for their own mistakes and spend their time finding solutions instead of making excuses. Our virtual assistants, from the HR team to Marketing and beyond, live for our core values which are:
- Attack your day
- Be incredible
- Complete the job
- Dream big
- Excuse free attitude
Without our virtual assistants, we wouldn’t have come this far. Furthermore, their talent, hard work, and dedication helped us keep dreaming without the need to wake up. We want to thank every virtual assistant working with us from the bottom of our hearts for helping us achieve milestones one after the other.
