I know, I know, I’m supposed to be telling you about what I’ve been reading this week, and I have been reading a lot on the bus, but it’s mostly been “The Economist”. Now that I have a few free minutes, I’m back to looking for a nanny agency and have found a couple of useful guides:
The Canadian Caregiver’s Association – a not for profit group that is trying to implement some industry standards has a guide. So far the best guide I’ve found is from an agency itself. I know it’s suspect to get the information “from the horse’s mouth”, but this site was full of great tips and tricks: http://www.execunannies.com/hr_approach.html If you click on the link, you’ll find the focus is more about hiring the nanny than the agency. And that’s exactly why I think the list is so great. I’m looking for an agency that can help me find a great nanny for my family, and this agency has suggestions on how to do that.
