Frequently Asked Questions

How does employee leasing / outsourcing work?

Employee leasing / outsourcing is a staffing mechanism that allows co-employment between Nani and the client. Once hired and placed, the staff is formally employed by Nani but works for the client based on agreed terms and conditions. Nani manages payroll, disputes, NSSF and NHIF payments, and other human resource issues while the client provides supervision on the ground.

Does Nani train domestic assistants?

Our 5-day basic orientation programme focuses on imparting ‘soft skills’ that are critical for improved service delivery by the domestic workers. The pre-placement orientation focuses on shaping work attitude, personal hygiene, cooking (basic Kenyan foods), first aid, child care, manners & etiquette, and use of varied household equipment.

How much does leasing domestic workers cost per month?

Staff salaries are negotiated by Nani and will be based on the category of staff needed, salary history, and experience. Nani will load a monthly management fee plus statutory deductions (current minimum leasing fee starts at Ksh16,500 per month).

Are Nani staff screened for reliability?

Yes. We deeply understand that home, office and personal security is a major concern for clients. Nani has an established, thorough process of screening candidates before engaging them as staff. Our staff are recruited through carefully chosen networks that provide personalised references. Additionally, we maintain detailed records of our staff and their next of kin.

What happens if staff don’t fit the client’s chemistry?

Nani provides a 1-month probation window for the client to test how the staff integrates into their working environment. Nani will replace staff if it’s clear it does not work out for the client. We replace upto 2 staff within a period of 3 months. After that the client will incur extra cost for any replacement .

Does Nani provide backup service when domestic assistants go on leave?

Yes, but this may involve an extra cost of Ksh.1000 per day on the client’s part. To avoid this surcharge, the best practice is to allow the staff to take leave when they are least needed. Leave is calculated on a prorata basis.

How many workers do I interview after paying the application fee?

Nani has already interviewed and shortlisted candidates before sending you a candidate to interview. You can interview a maximum of 2 workers. A new application fee is required to interview more.

Why does your laundry service cost this much?

Our costing is based on the wash load of 1- 7kg of dry clothes.
