Comments, Ideas & Stories | Greenhouse Agcy Ltd - The Ultimate Leader in Personal and Domestic/Household Service Staffing Needs

T

he relationship between “employer” & “employee” is most unique in the Private Sector – Personal Service Industry. This is the rarest of situations, where an employee’s responsibilities require they be a part of their boss’s everyday private lives. This “connection” in most cases inevitably leads to the employee’s personal life being opened up to their employer. It’s virtually impossible for the traditional “boss/worker” relationship we see in the corporate/business world to be remotely similar in a residential/family setting.

Of course there is always a line drawn and boundaries set, as in all work environments. Never the less, the environment itself tends to create this “one of a kind” rapport.

Because of this exceptional link between “employer” & “employee,” we ask for Comments, Thoughts, Ideas, Suggestions, Experiences & Stories. Please take a moment to submit an item of interest, related to Household/Domestic Staff or previous work stories. The funnier…the better. The more informative…the more helpful for all.

  • Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m definitely
    enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.

    If only Employers of “Personal Service Staff” would be clear about their expectations and the job…..what a wonderful world it would be????

    I’ve found the majority of my clients have found (learned) ways of making tons of money…. but along with this comes the “Frankenstein”…… the 15,000 + sq ft house or apartment. The 2nd and 3rd (many times 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 made if not the linens changed entirely, thousands of sq ft of floors needed vacuuming -moping-sweeping-waxing-washing, god only knows how much glass/mirrors to be Windexed…..all each & every day. This is just scratching the surface of the multitude of tasks and work requiring attention and responsibility….. each and every day.

    Proper and professional management is now a necessity. The Principal/s must detail their “wants and wishes.” Be clear about their expectations.

    So many of my clients have told me; “I wish we were back in our smaller Park Ave apartment. I never had to deal with all this staff” or “We have so much money, but we really are not happy because we can’t find the right ‘staff’ to do the needed jobs, tasks and take on the necessary responsibilities, so that we can truly enjoy what we have.”

    Well….give up a bit of control and hire the right House-manager, PA etc….. a professional! Duh?

    It’s literally; “watch out what you wish for, you just might get it.” A “Frankenstein situation” was created and it’s hard to control. It’s funny how some people can manage “conglomerates,” but not there homes. I feel for lots of my clients, because it is a tough job. They have 2 – 4 kids of different ages. Being rich, these kids are involved in a multitude of activities and their social lives require a PA to manage. Laundry in these houses is a full-time job in itself. What about meals, while Mom & Dad are on crazy diets or eating one type of cuisine, while the kids are finicky and must be served something else all together. I can go on and on.

    Communicating with Staff is absolutely essential. Outlining chores and schedules is a must. Securing proper quality and experienced staff goes without saying. So……if the boss takes the time to be clear with how their house should be run, along with their expectations….VIA their designated manager? Then he/she will see to it; a smooth running operation is in place. Hopefully the end result is a “wonderful world” with satisfied Principal/s and a happy staff.

  • Greenhouse’s definition of “Chauffeured Transportation.”
    Since we do not have; “beam me up Scotty” yet…….Chauffeured Transportation would be the following, at a minimum:
    1. Availability at Bosses request, when and where needed.
    2. Transport safely & comfortably by a FOCUSED, SECURITY-CONSCIOUS
    INDIVIDUAL.
    3. Transport from point A to point B in as fast a time possible, utilizing knowledge of
    routes & destination, various construction/movie-shoots/closed streets, along w
    traffic conditions.
    4. Driver must be “Secret Service” type; see’s nothing, hears nothing, repeats
    nothing, remembers nothing…..with the common sense to do something should
    he/she realize someone in vehicle is having a hear attack or other medical issue.
    5. Ideal Chauffeured Transportation is rendered by a person who is ex/retired law-
    enforcement.  Having a “get out of jail free” card, could come in handy when car is
    stopped for minor infraction or asked to move from a “no standing zone.”
