Respecting the maid and her responsibility that she carries:
Every employee has his/her own self-esteem and respect about oneself. Or fore most duty in this aspect is to maintain dignity and decorum as far as respecting each other is concerned. In case of housemaids the amount of responsibility and stress she handles is certainly noteworthy and surely deserves exceptional respect. Although every employee justifies a considerable amount of respect since he/she plays a role in the development of the organization in case of the domestic help this ratio undoubtedly will be more, owing to the fact that she integrates herself into the family itself. The more respect and praise received surely boosts up the enthusiasm and results in more productivity and dedication.
Compliments are the best motivations for any employee. If you are happy with her duties on a particular day never hesitate to praise. This small expression of happiness builds an immense motivation in her mind. This in turn keeps her on her toes for the next day’s assignments and duties with more dedication and enthusiasm. All the same if she needs to be instructed to do it in the most tactful way so that she receives your signal clearly and corrects herself without losing her self-esteem.
‘Resting hours’ a crucial period:
The human mind and body has of course been intended to do productive work to keep us busy and beneficial. However when the work barrier surpasses, we need rest. The same theory applies to a housemaid too. After a day’s long and tiring work, ample rest hours are obligatory which helps her to relax and prepare herself mentally and physically for the next day’s work.
The right way of communication:
Verbal communication plays a very important role in our daily routine. Whether it is a general dialogue or a special instruction, the way one communicates and expresses is certainly significant. In case of a housemaid culture and language plays a crucial role, the maid would have been from a place with an altogether a different environment, and may require you to instruct her in the way she understands, specially while you are out of the household. In case she misinterprets your instruction the upshots surely will lead to unpleasant situations for both the employer and the maid.
