Communication Is Key
The biggest problem that most domestic employers face when hiring Maids in Singapore is the language barrier.
Most of the time, conflict happens when the maids misinterpret the instructions given by their employers. They end up doing the wrong things that causes frustrations and build up negative energy within the house. Very likely, this will also lead to the end of the employment relationship depending on which party raises the white flag first.
Communication is key. However, language takes time to master. Here, we teach the basic commonly used household languages. The goal is to ensure, simple instructions can be understood easily.

Upon recommendation from my nephew who used Island Maids Agency, I went to their Bedok Branch and Siti Aminah attended to me on 29/8/23. Siti patiently listened to my request for a helper to help with caring of an elderly and helping with housework. She sent several profiles of suitable candidates matching my requirements. I found a suitable candidate from Myanmar and interviewed her on video the next day. I appreciated Siti's video call even though she was off duty. My Myanmar helper started work at my home on 15/9/23. She is pleasant and keen to learn how to use the gas cooker and electrical appliances with my guidance. Thank you Island Maids Agency for a wonderful professional service.
I’m so pleased with my helper. Who is well trained and respectful. Thank you to Ina of Island Maids Bedok for all your help and the process was seamless. Am very pleased with your service and professionalism. Will definitely recommend.
A big thank you to Island Maids consultant Ms. Meris Hong (formerly from Tiong Bahru Branch). Now is with Hougang Branch. She is very patience, helpful and cheerful. Whenever we need her assistance , she responded promptly and timely . She works very hard in sourcing and selecting a suitable helper for us from Philippines. Several interviews have been conducted and the process has been very smooth. I got the helper within a short timeframe. Very much appreciated that. I will recommend Meris to my friends and my family members.
I would like to thank Ms.Gni from Yishun branch for being most accommodating since day 1 in our search for a helper. She explains everything in a good manner.

Any problem she can handle well and she will treat u as your friend. Thank you Ms.Gni . All the best.
