What are the benefits of outsourcing to a concierge?
There will come a point in the life of a busy executive where striking a healthy balance between their work and home life will become exponentially harder. Inevitably, with success at work comes more demands on your time – whether that means more time in the boardroom or more time travelling, chances are that your home life will have to adapt around your working commitments to some extent.
Whilst the workaholic life may be acceptable to some, most people, however successful they are at work, want to be equally successful at home too. After all, isn’t success at work meant to enable and enhance your home life? Whether you’ve got kids, a significant other, pets, friends or even just some much-needed solitary ‘me-time’ waiting for you at home, chances are that you’re not spending as much time there and with your loved ones as you want and need.
How to tackle this? Enter the concierge. Much like a PA for your personal life, a concierge will be able to help you organize your precious time at home and take care of all those little tasks which easily pile up and become overwhelming. Let’s have a look at the specific benefits you’ll enjoy when you hire a concierge.
More time for friends and family
The more tasks you’re able to delegate to a concierge, the more time you’ll have on your hands to spend doing what you love with the people you love.
A good concierge will take care of all fathomable tasks for you – that could be buying your children’s school uniforms, picking up relatives from the airport, organizing holidays and even buying your groceries. The hours you normally spend doing a big food shop at the weekend are suddenly yours again to claim as you wish – how about taking the kids to a park? Or escaping to the beach for a few hours with friends?
As well as giving you more time, concierges will instantly be able to reduce your stress levels; so important for time-poor executives juggling too many tasks.
Now that there’s someone to organize your diary, buy your wife an anniversary gift and organizing the weekly groceries, you don’t need to spend time and effort worrying about what you could have forgotten. Lie back and delegate – your concierge will take care of it for you.
Access to the best
What makes a great concierge? Great contacts. Your concierge will have contacts and access to all the hottest spots in town, whether it’s a table at a fantastic restaurant normally needed to be booked months in advance, or a hotel reservation at a beautiful boutique hotel away from tourists and fuss.
Be sure to take advantage of your concierge’s expertise and inside knowledge in order to get access to the best events and attractions.
