Consulting Services for Families

Cute Baby with Bear

If you are a busy family, we understand that we are not the only resource for finding a nanny. What do you do when you have found a viable candidate but you do not have the expertise to do all the screening and background checking? We can help.

Use our knowledge and expertise in any areas of background checking. We can do any or all parts of the process for you and give you the information we have gathered.

Consulting for Agencies is also one of our areas of expertise. We can give you sound advice either on starting up a new agency or making your existing business more profitable and rewarding.

For agencies that are established and need a fresh perspective on the business, The Philadelphia Nanny Network, Inc. can give that. Wendy Sachs, president and owner of The Philadelphia Nanny Network, Inc. has spent the past years of her career traveling around the country visiting agencies, consulting and gathering information, gaining a working knowledge of various ways to make this type of business profitable and rewarding. Here are some of the topics and issues she can consult on to help you position your business for growth and success.

Profiting

Learn how to view your bottom line and what it takes to make it grow. Discuss fee structures and guarantees. If you are not satisfied with your profits, have cash flow difficulties or feel you should make more money, learn how to trim the fat and keep the lean.

Office Efficiency and Management

Work smarter. This industry is labor intensive and labor is the most expensive cost of the service. How can you work more efficiently without giving up on quality. Computer software designed specifically for this business is available.

Staffing

The ability to attract, hire, train, develop and maintain a staff of high performance professionals will ultimately determine profitability of your agency. Learn more about: hiring, training and managing staff; performance reviews; compensation packages to fit your business; staff structure and positions; employee termination without firing.

Business Management

Do you know your business' weaknesses? Can you make them strengths? Become more business savvy. Create a high profile reputation. Learn about goal setting and how to measure your business.

Consulting is arranged in a variety of ways to meet your needs. This ranges from $30 per 15 minute increments of telephone conferences to full packages including computer software. Call Wendy Sachs at 610-645-6550 to discuss your needs.
