Understanding the Role of a Fractional Executive Assistant

If you’re looking to boost productivity while offloading some of the administrative tasks on your plate, hiring a fractional executive assistant is a great place to start. 

In this post, we’re going to break down exactly what a fractional executive assistant is, what they can do, and why you should consider hiring one for your business.


What is a Fractional Executive Assistant?

Clearly defined, a fractional executive assistant is a professional who provides administrative support and assistance to businesses or individuals on a part-time or project basis. 

Fractional work is done remotely and can be hired for a specific number of hours rather than a full-time position. (Think of it as hiring an employee for a “fraction” of the time a normal employee would work.)



What do they do?

This type of assistant can handle a variety of tasks, including but not limited to: 

  • Managing a calendar
  • Curating an inbox
  • Research
  • Travel Booking
  • Event Management
  • CRM Support
  • Various Administrative Duties

Essentially, they are focusing on the details. By eliminating these tasks from your own plate, you’ll be able to focus on what you do best, which will encourage mastering productivity as an executive. This is especially beneficial for small or growing businesses because you’re utilizing skills and expertise from a remote worker, without acquiring the costs of a full-time employee.

“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” -Will Rodgers


Why should you hire one?

Fractional executive assistants can be a cost-effective solution for companies or individuals who require administrative support but don’t need a full-time employee. Think of them as an extension of you; someone who shares a passion for growth, while improving communication and productivity. Your fractional executive assistant specializes in effective time management skills, to be the gatekeeper and manage a busy schedule to allow for higher productivity.
