For most of us, stressing about stress has become the new norm. We are all looking for ways to simplify our lives so that we can better enjoy time with our family, friends, hobbies, or just have that precious downtime that is stolen from us by constant planning.
Aleksandra Kardwell, the president of Hamptons Employment Agency, knows that time is more valuable than anything in our lives, and she has cultivated an organization that saves us just that, by taking stress, worry, and, indeed, planning, right out of our Hamptons lexicon.
The premier agency for all domestic staffing needs, Hamptons Employment Agency uses a personal approach, meticulous screening, and an intimate knowledge of what will satisfy every client’s needs and wants. “Seeking domestic staff and other help online is time-consuming and unreliable — if not potentially dangerous in some situations,” says Kardwell. “What sets us apart is that we come to the table prepared with a short list of strong, thoroughly screened candidates for employers. We know that time is highly valuable, and we do the work by carefully screening and interviewing candidates, checking their references, and running formal background checks to create each client’s candidate list.”
Kardwell’s celebrated agency specializes in placing one-time, seasonal, and year-round staff. Some of the positions that they frequently help employers fill are servers and bartenders for parties; chefs for one-day or multi-day events; summer housekeepers and chefs; and full-time, year-round housekeepers, domestic couples, managers, chefs, personal assistants, and nannies. They also specialize in providing administrative staff for businesses and sales associates for retail stores.
They currently have offices in Southampton, Manhattan, and Boca Raton, but, says Kardwell, she always is available with her personal touch. “Clients like to work with me directly, or have access to me, and it’s my philosophy to maintain a strong hands-on approach to the work,” says Kardwell. “My team and I all work hard to do what it takes to meet that goal of highly personalized service.”
Want proof? Hamptons Employment Agency was voted the 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012 Best Domestic Agency — Platinum/#1 by the readers of Dan’s Papers, and is a member of the Better Business Bureau, with which the company maintains an A+ rating.
Additionally, Aleksandra Kardwell was chosen as a Long Island Business News 2014 “40 Under 40” award recipient. The award is given to accomplished business leaders under 40 years old who are making an impact on Long Island. For Kardwell, though, it’s feedback from clients that means the most. “I have had the great pleasure to know Aleksandra for six years. Aleksandra is a superstar. Aleksandra began managing one of my properties, a large Southampton estate. She later also became a member of my team at a small seasonal art gallery in Sag Harbor, in sales and marketing, as well as coordinator of all exhibition openings,” says Tim, a Southampton resident. “She is a very hard worker, has incredible drive, motivation to always succeed, and a talent for picking great people for any position she needs to fill. She is also smart and a real pleasure with which to work. Her personality and energy are contagious.”
