Hiring through an Agency vs. Hiring on your own

Hiring someone to work in your home and trusting them with your loved ones is a big responsibility and can be very stressful. Working with a professional agency like Diamond Personnel will give you the peace of mind you need to make the right decision and minimize hiring mistakes.

Here’s how using a professional agency like Diamond Personnel can help:

You don’t know what you’re looking for.

There are many things to consider when hiring someone for your household: skill set, experience, hours, personality, responsibilities, job-title and more.  Not sure if your expectations are reasonable? Not sure what to pay in order to find what you’re looking for? Using our unique Discovery Process, Diamond Personnel will obtain a thorough understanding of your needs and expectations and make professional recommendations to set you up for success.

You don’t have the time or resources.

You have a busy schedule, you don’t have time to go through hundreds of resumes or conduct pre-screening phone calls and in-person interviews. You don’t have the patience for no-shows.

At Diamond Personnel, we do all of the screening and vetting for you as part of our recruitment process. We provide you with only the best candidates who match your needs and expectations. Each candidate will be hand selected and presented with a comprehensive applicant profile complete with verbally verified references, background checks, a thorough work history and qualifications. We coordinate your interviews and support you with our tried and true interview questions. We negotiate the offer and write up your employment contract. We save you the time and energy of dealing with the minutia so you can focus on selecting the right person for your family.

You don’t know your role as an employer of household staff

Hiring someone for your home is not the same as hiring a casual sitter or an employee for your company. Hiring and managing a household employee and nurturing this relationship has its own set of rules. At Diamond Personnel our professional consultants are here for you every step of the way, even after you hire. Don’t know how to handle overtime? Not sure what to give for Christmas or for an annual increase? How do you conduct a performance review? We’re here for you every step of the way and to answer all of your questions.

What if it doesn’t work?

Once you have invested in the process to hire, you will want to know how to manage and retain your new employee. Our Nanny Success System will help you start off on the right foot and communicate your expectations. At Diamond Personnel, we have a 98% success rate on our placements but if for some reason it doesn’t work out, you have a 4-month guarantee period within which we will source suitable replacement candidates.
