We live in a time where being cautious when employing people is considered a bad thing, that if you were to do anything differently from your usual routine, you are prejudiced and being offensive. Unfortunately, I cannot allow this way of thinking to stick when it comes to hiring people and letting them into your home. While I definitely want to get along with the cleaning crew or the guys from Pest Control Company Highland, my trust and friendship should be earned through time, and even then boundaries should be made.
You see, your home is your stronghold, it is where most of what is there to be known about you are found, and often where the most valuable things in your life are kept. Letting people into your home is a weak point in your personal security, trust must be built up slowly, and boundaries kept if you were to give your trust and the keys to your home to the wrong person it might harm you greatly.
Giving people chances and allowing them to be part of your life as an employee and friend is an important factor in being a good employer. But you need to be vigilant; you need to keep the temptation away from them, you need to remember that while you are in their service, there are professional lines that must not be crossed for the sake of both parties.
