Hey Diamond Family!
For everyone in Canada whose wondering, Civic Holiday on Monday August 4th is not a statutory holiday. What does that mean for you? Some of you may be working this Monday, some of you may not, depending on your employers. You’ll also notice that libraries, banks and government offices will be closed but many other popular locations such as malls will remain open.
This Civic Holiday, we hope you all have a fun and safe weekend! Diamond will be open.
One of the things we adore about our Diamond Family is the sense of community. It’s really quite incredible — all across the country, we have Diamond Nannies! We know having a friend nearby is a source of comfort, support and friendship.
We want to remind our Diamond Nannies though: work hard, play later. What do we mean exactly? Before you leave your employer’s home at the end of the week, take the time to speak with your employers and ask, “Is there anything else you need me to do? Do you need any overtime from me?”
Never forget: you came to Canada to work. Show some initiative! By rushing out the door at the end of your work week, it can convey to your employers that you’re not interested in working with their family, that you’re only interested in going out with your loved ones. This could negatively effect your employment.
So do yourself a favour and ask your employers tomorrow: “Would you like me to help you with anything else?”
