bridging the gap
First time employers are not readily equipped at the right time with the relevant materials to train their Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW) when they arrive at their home. Bridging the Gap is a solution that provides relevant information at the right time.
It revolves around the concept of:
- Identifying general needs and priorities for hiring an FDW and the qualities and abilities that the FDW has.
- Investigating specific needs and task to be done by the FDW
- Implementing the solution during the training period with these identified tasks emphasised.
Bridging the Gap helps shorten the initial adjustment period by improving the training process. It helps employers to set realistic expectations, create a personal training program and provide both employers and FDWs with tools to teach and learn necessary skills efficiently.
