The other servant was working for last fifteen years in house. He was told to leave job by the owner of house because owner found him guilty of cheating. The servant told me that no one in this world wants to cheat or do wrong things. It is the world which make him do all these things. When the owner himself go for shopping then he purchase a certain item for 100 rupees while same item is purchased by the servant in 50 rupees saving 50 rupees. He told that if servant retains these fifty rupees then there is no crime.
The other thing which hurts most of the servants according to him is suspicion on them. They are always under suspicion from their owners. He told that a servant always be given some freedom in his work. Second problem faced by servants is not getting enough hikes in their salaries. They continue to work for years on the same salaries. When their families increase then it become very difficult for them to survive on same salary and thus they may restore to wrong things.
For maintaining a good relations with the servants owner require to have constant conversation with him and in conversation he must give due importance to servant’s views. This conversation will help owner in accessing the needs of servants in well advance. If a servant is given some extra responsibility then he must be dually rewarded for his extra work. Few extra rupees will not only sometimes motivate him but also encourage him to be away from wrong doings.
Managing servants is similar to managing people in organizations. Only by doing few motivational things one can retain the honesty and commitment of a servant. Smart living makes the all difference.
