In 2008, Gwenn and Jeremy Aspen hired their first remote employee — a friend and past colleague from Mexico. She initially helped with answering calls via a VOIP phone for our property management business. The support helped us provide a better customer service experience for our owners and tenants as we focused on growing our business.
Shortly thereafter, we expanded our virtual workforce which helped our business grow at a faster pace than we ever thought possible. The rapid growth created more jobs and opportunities not only remotely, but in our hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.
By 2015, we had hired 26 remote professionals and helped another friend and colleague in Denver hire through our network. Watching their business grow gave us the inspiration to help more businesses like ours, and in 2016, Anequim was born.
Our direct experience with hiring, training and developing remote professionals helped us define the processes and procedures for Anequim’s virtual assistant program. Today, Anequim is one of the largest remote professional employers in Mexico, providing services to US and Canadian customers in a wide array of industries.
