Virtual Gurus and Communo Partner to Empower the Remote Workforce

Calgary, Alberta, February 27, 2020 – Today, Communo and Virtual Gurus, two Calgary-based companies that empower remote workforces and the gig economy,  announced their collaboration. Virtual Gurus provides virtual administrative and back-end office support for US and Canadian businesses while Communo focuses on curating remote marketing, advertising, public relations, digital and creative professionals. 

Communo and Virtual Gurus are working together to elevate Canadian and American freelancers, providing opportunities to work regardless of their physical location. This collaboration will help Communo members get the best of the virtual workforce so they can focus on growing their business.

“The way we work is changing; businesses and entrepreneurs don’t necessarily need someone in-office full-time and remote workers are looking for opportunities to create a lifestyle where work, works for them. We’re committed to supporting both sides of that equation,” said Bobbie Racette, CEO and Founder of Virtual Gurus. “Communo is a partner that is equally committed and together, we’re going to help the growth of the remote workforce in the US and Canada.”

“70% of businesses have already adopted remote office support and technology solutions to empower remote teams,” said Patrick Orr, V.P. of Marketing for Communo. “With so many businesses benefiting with remote employees and telecommuting, we want to ensure they have the tools to do it best.” 

The complementary nature of Communo’s and Virtual Gurus’ offerings will build on one another’s strengths to offer businesses support in building a full suite of services from administration and finance to different professional administrative services and enabling technology.
