What is the best way to introduce my new domestic helper?

During the introduction, it is important that your new domestic help quickly finds their way around. Therefore, address topics such as:

  • What chores should be done?
  • Are there sensitive objects that need to be handled with special care?
  • Where will cleaning materials, irons etc. be kept?
  • Which rooms may be entered and which not?
  • Your telephone number for emergencies
  • Explanation of smoke detectors and fire extinguishers

To make sure you think of everything, we have compiled a checklist with the most important points for your domestic helper's first day at work: Checklist for the 1st day of work: Introducing your helper (PDF)
