Before we finally say goodbye to 2020, let’s take a look back. The pandemic impacted nearly every aspect of our lives including employing someone to work in your home. So it’s no surprise that most of our most popular household employment blog posts of the year were related to the health crisis.
While we are slowly getting “back to normal,” we still need to be wary that the pandemic is not over, and the risk of infection is real. In a competitive job market, what does that mean for those looking to work as a nanny during the health crisis? Here are 9 steps to take right now and 4 things to expect when you are on the job.

We are proud to lend support to the Nanny Relief Fund, a newly-launched nonprofit organization assisting in-home caregivers in their times of need.
