How many languages do you know? One? Two? Chances are if you know more than one, the languages had been instilled at a very young age. You might have had help from a parent, friend, maybe your nanny?   The idea of employing foreign nannies to aid the development of additional languages in young children has been around for some time now.

A Relationship Between Your Employer and a Coworker?
 
question

Imagine this scenario: You’re part of a medium-sized domestic staff. It’s a great environment and everyone gets along, but recently something has come to your attention. You’ve noticed your boss (who is a loving husband and father of three) entering a seldom used guestroom, always with one particular young attractive housekeeper who happens to be your colleague.

Serving the Table! Most upscale dinners will include 5 courses, encompassing an appetizer, soup, salad, entree, and dessert. Many formal settings practice the open hand service method, which means that a server’s arms are never to be crossed in front of a guest, and food is always served from the guest’s left side. Important Tips to Remember: Ladies are always served first. Never eat, drink, or chew gum in front of guests. Always exhibit proper posture – Do not slouch, cross your arms, or leave your hands in your pockets while on service. Press uniforms to eliminate wrinkles, creases, and [ Read the rest…]

I’ve found that the majority of my clients have found/learned ways of making tons of money, but along with this good fortune comes the “Frankenstein”: The 15,000+ square foot house or apartment, the 2nd and 3rd (& sometimes many more) properties, boats, planes, and a fleet of cars. But these are still family units, with the same basic needs of all families, compounded now with complications of all the toys mentioned above. It’s a “monster” resulting from hard work, success & choice of lifestyle.   Now eight or more bathrooms need cleaning, four or more beds need be stripped and [ Read the rest…]

 
Short Term / Temporary Staff – Summer is Right Around the Corner!!!!!
 
Job Responsibilities

For many Employer’s of Household/Domestic Staff, this is the time of year when additional workers are needed.   Though not needing a permanent employee, the same quality & skill-set is essential. References, background and personality component must still be of the level of a “long term” candidate being considered.  The best way to be assured of having expectations met…… is to be up front, in the beginning, about the “temporary nature” of the job. We have seen many family’s indicate they are hiring for a permanent position.  A new member of the “team” comes on board.  In all work environments, [ Read the rest…]
