All good up north - boss hasn't been going anywhere so I've been more involved in helping his company management team deal with the effect Covid has had on the business operation - staff working from home and implications around data protection, protection of IP and now Risk Assessing the return to work for senior staff and directors.
Nice change of scene and part of the 'value add' I've often mentioned is important to keep you as a business requirement and not a cost centre in the eyes of those holding the purse strings.
I am new to this forum I after some advice I am currently on a RST role. The child of the family I work for has become familiar with myself as of course I want to build a rapport with them. However she now comes round to were i am based and wants to play all the time even though I am there to do a job I also think it is good that she feels comfortable about my presence should I keep up the good relations do you think or be stern with her shes is only a child I dont want it to seem unprofessional.
Morning - just have a word with the Principal (or your boss if that's the reporting line).
At the end of the day they pay you to do a job, if you can't due to the child then they need to have words and explain the situation to her, not you.
At the same time they may feel that the relationship is important and they're happy for it to continue - RST is about protecting the home and those living there and good relationships are vital, so they may do something to mitigate the impact it'll have on your RST commitments.
Some of the best CPO's I know are 'security nannies' and look after the children, so you may find a new role open up in the future
