I have a natural advantage over human employers because I have been an employer for several centuries.

One of the rules I live by and which many human employers do not seem to understand is to keep those you employ happy.

For example, many human employers would ignore Jane’s unhappiness at living in castle after castle while I am ascertaining that Debutante Vampires are being trained properly.

They may even retort that it is “part of the job”.  That is certainly true, but dissatisfied employees always find a way to take out their unhappiness on their employers, whereas a happy employee does their best to carry out your wishes.

Of course, there is a limit to how far you indulge your employees.  For example, I have rejected Jane’s request for an extra day off for more training.

I am satisfied with the way Jane is progressing.  While she is not perfect, most of her duties are performed well and there has been a gradual improvement in the standard of her work over the years she has worked for me.

Most human employers do not realise that if the standard of work of your employee is dropping, they need to speak to the employee and ascertain what is wrong.

It is normally the butler’s job to do this.  A good butler will do this before his employer realises there is anything wrong

Since I have no butler, I am responsible for staff relations.  It is not an easy job, but fortunately I only have Jane and Michelle at the prison to oversee.

I do not like that Michelle is my employee, but it has been made clear that I am responsible for both her successes and her failures while she is at the prison.
