Let’s face it, life today is fast paced and demanding of our time, attention, and energy. Many new parents find out the hard way that their newborn needs these things as well. As a result, it is not uncommon for couples to hire someone to assist them with the care of their new baby. One frequently asked question when hiring a newborn care professional is, “should I use a newborn care agency?” Our answer is an unequivocal, “yes!” Continue reading for some of our reason to hire your newborn care professional through a newborn care agency.
Screening and Background Checks
Living in the digital age, it has become increasingly difficult to determine whether the person you are interviewing is who they say they are or not. By utilizing a newborn care agency to find your Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) you can have confidence that you are hiring someone who is competent, trustworthy, and legitimate. Agencies seek to hire the best possible care givers they can find and establish rigorous standards (including certifications, education, and experience) that all potential care providers must exceed. Additionally, it is necessary for all candidates seeking to work for the agency to pass a thorough background check with stricter scrutiny than online background checks such as those provided by HireRight or BeenVerified.
Never in a Bind
When you hire an NCS through a newborn care agency, you are not only hiring one individual to care for your child but an entire team. As a result, if your caregiver is ever sick or you have a need for last minute or extended hours, you don’t have to scramble to find a friend or family member who can help you out. Now, this may not seem like that big of a deal but what about if it is the night before a crucial day for your career? Having the support of the agencies team could mean the difference between a successful meeting or a dud of a presentation.
Agencies also have access to some of the top rated talent in your area as well as connections to even more caregivers that may live outside of your area. They are also invested in making sure that you are satisfied with the care you receive and will often go out of their way to make sure that the candidates you interview will be the best fit for your family. In short, your newborn care agency is committed to finding the perfect match for your requirements and personality.
