Are you so busy with work that you don’t have the time or energy to plan personal events or even keep up with basic necessities? Is your task list at work expanding instead of decreasing—though you and your co-workers are working constantly? Have you considered a personal and/or corporate concierge? How would you go about finding such a service?
Here are a few tips to get you started in your search:
- Interview candidates to ensure availability, communications, and descriptions of services are compatible with the items with which you require assistance. Will someone be available weekends?
- Request price quotes for basic services as well as add-ons.
- Consider due dates and timelines—can services be delivered when you need them?
- Will you be assigned to 1 or 2 people who will be familiar with you and your projects, or will you have to explain you requirements anew each time you call, depending on who answers the phone?
A concierge could ease the hassles of your workload and personal chores and goals—but if you do not know what to expect, you could find yourself in the midst of uncertainty that causes rather than alleviates stress. So do your research!
