Statistics show that employees actually cost 2 to 2 1/2 times their rate of pay when their full costs are included: base salary, FICA, FUTA, SUTA, Medicare, workers comp, overtime, vacation, sick leave, breaks and other unproductive time, administrative costs, recruitment, training, management, compliance programs, insurance, office space and furnishings, equipment, software, etc. Because The Virtual Office Goddess is a contractor and NOT an employee, none of these costs apply when working with us.
