Although it is not too difficult to find a domestic worker nowadays, especially since the advent of online searches and relevant portals and other internet and web based applications that are built specifically for this purpose, the real challenge is how to manage the maid after employment within the household. In this respect one may contemplate that employing a domestic helper is a simple job and once employed the process is even simpler. But on contrary to this, employing a maid is quite a tricky job in spite of having all the advanced contrivances.
While we surpass the process of hiring a maid successfully, the next challenge that is encountered is the successful management of the maid. Successful management, here, means maintaining a healthy relationship with the helper or the maid. Since developing a long-term sustaining relationship is a sort of tricky challenge for the employer as well as the helper, there are certain proven concepts and theories which systematically followed reduces the usual differences that may occur between the maid and the employer.
The aspects that have to be considered in order to help retain the employee and the employer relationships better are, detailing the needs specifically, setting the household rules and regulations at the beginning of the tenure employment so that any unpleasant incidents can be totally averted, thirdly a properly framed and written works contract, specifically mentioning the expectations and also the employee related responsibilities, because anything that is written becomes more enforceable and leaves a sense of security within the mind of the maid hence documenting everything that the employer and the maid expects from each other.
This apart in the real time setting, specific rules are quite important, for creating a positive working and living environment. These rules must be discussed and explained to the maid at the start so that any sort of confusions can be eliminated. The most common ones must necessarily be the ones related to the security and safety of the household, so as of the current smart phone trends, posting images of home on any social media must be totally curbed. Likewise any unnecessary talk about the home and happenings in it must not be shared to any neighbour or stranger. Timelines for work completion, health and hygiene, job role, salary, annual vacation and similar must be clearly discussed to avoid unnecessary conflicts between the employer and the maid.
