Great Employees Do Not Grow On Trees
So much goes into the relationship between a business and its employees. It all begins with the help wanted ad. I am a firm believer that the ad you write will attract a particular type of person. We always write a friendly, easy to understand ad to make our preferred potential employee respond. We are always on the look out for clean cut, well spoken, relaxed, enthusiastic people. In short, we hire people that our clients will be comfortable having in their homes. Applicants are thoroughly interviewed to get an idea of their personality and work ethic. Once we have decided to offer the person a position, we do a drug test and a comprehensive background check to confirm our own observations.
Employees Must Be Treated Fairly and Honestly
We are a small local business but we are proud to be able to offer our employees a full array of benefits. We withhold taxes and FICA. That way the employee does not have to scramble to pay quarterly taxes. We cover our employees with Workers’ Compensation Insurance which means that if he/she is injured on the job, all medical bills and salary will be paid while they recuperate. We have 6 paid holidays every year and long term employees earn up to four weeks of paid vacation every year.
Another feature that we have for our employees is a Simple IRA. This is a program where we match up to 3% of the participating employee’s gross annual salary and their money goes into a retirement account. When the ACA went into effect, we brought in an insurance broker to counsel our staff on their insurance options.
At Custom Maid we have created a family type culture. We have found that family type employees are our very best! We think you will agree! Call us at 499-8568 to set up an in home estimate. We know you will love our staff as much as we do.
