Though your domestic help is an employee, he/she is indeed an integral part of your family and household. From cleaning the house and doing chores, to spending time with your kids and attending to guests; they leave their imprint on a daily basis. Hiring and managing efficient help can get overwhelming. You need to focus not only on selecting a loyal employee but a person who is in sync with your everyday needs. A well-trained maid is truly who you need to ensure the smooth running of your home. Here is why maid training is so important”
1. TECHNICALLY SOUND AND SKILLED
Every individual brings with them a new set of challenges. You need someone reliable, skilled, and can take initiatives on their own. A person who is updated with the functioning of different electrical appliances, knows which clothing item is meant for hand-wash and which one needs to be dry-cleaned. After all, no one wants their whites to turn pink!
These skills can be acquired. A well-drafted training plan can easily help your staff to perform their best.
2. RESPECTFUL AND GROOMED INDIVIDUAL
Your domestic help is usually the first person who comes in contact with your guests. A well-groomed individual who is trained to handle and cater to the needs of your guests is highly important. Maintaining personal hygiene and dressing neat and smart is essential for remarkable representation.
Any outsider will look at your home management as the reflection of your own organizational skills and don’t we all love to make a lasting impression.
3. THE ART OF MANAGEMENT
Your kitchen is at the center of the whole ‘managing the household process’. Upkeep, waste management, grocery shopping, and handling the accounts need to be done systematically. Training your maid can result in well-organized kitchen management.
And let us tell you, A happy and clean kitchen leads to a healthy house!
4. THE MORAL VALUE OF PROFESSIONALISM
The housemaid needs to work professionally while giving utmost respect to those around her. Using appropriate language, exhibiting dignified behavior, regards towards the employer, gentleness towards kids, and refraining from interfering in personal matters are few actions that need to be carried out with great care. With training on such sensitive issues, professional boundaries can be set effectively.
5. WITH ORGANIZATION COMES EMPOWERMENT
Sometimes everything seems fine, but something is still not working out. Have you ever wondered why? It is important from day one that your helper understands what is needed of them. Adjusting to the environment and adapting to the needs of family members, following a defined work structure, continuous goal setting, are all factors that lead up to a chaos free process. A well-trained maid will herself upgrade the level of service and be inventive with her capabilities.
6. TRAIN TO SAVE!
It often happens that your current house help is good but is under-performing in some areas. Laying them off and hiring a new person can be challenging. It is always better to train them in the desired areas and build on the already established trust and faith. Employee retention has more advantages than just long-term work tenure. Happy staff will not only stay put for longer, but will be productive as well. This process is also faster and less expensive than re-hiring.
