Living in Indonesia can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience, however the first few months are critical in the settling-in process and much needs to be done to ensure the success of your stay here. Most expatriates employ domestic staff to assist during their stay here, due to their modest costs. However most domestic staff have limited English and perhaps little or no prior training, and therefore it is a challenge for most expatriates to train the staff to meet their own specific requirements. This is where Santa Fe can assist by providing our ‘Domestic Staff Training Service’. The training provided by this service includes but is not limited to -
• Hiring Assistance - we can provide sample contracts / assist during the interview process. Arrange for medical checks if required and discuss employer obligations (THE, severance, holidays, BPJS, medical, funeral etc.)
• Translation services – we can assist with communications between you and your domestic staff.
• Setting Weekly Work Schedule – we can help setup a weekly schedule for all staff (maids, cooks, gardener, pool, driver) if required
• Setting Weekly Meal Schedule – We can help set up a weekly schedule for meals – breakfast, lunch and dinners, and preparation of a shopping list for these meals.
• Kitchen Hygiene & Cleanliness – teaching the food handlers / cooks how to maintain a healthy kitchen in food preparation / handling, and how to avoid cross contamination for those with food allergies.
• Emergency Preparedness – teaching domestic staff how to react in an emergency situation – i.e. fire; poisoning; accident etc. Also tech them proper use of fire extinguishers and fire blankets (also we can purchase these if you don’t already have them).
• Paying Bills & Money Handling – setting up systems and training domestic staff to assist pay bills (i.e. PLN electricity top-ups) and handle money
• Set Up Weekly/Monthly Shopping List – for regular grocery items and identification on any special products required due to food allergies
