"Wafla has been instrumental in helping me grow our H-2A program and keeping me up-to-date with current HR issues. We are so focused on growing, harvesting, packing, and marketing. It is easy for HR issues to be pushed to the back burner. I rely on wafla's expertise in current HR issues, training, compliance, and protection to ensure we are in compliance. The H-2A program comes with unique challenges that wafla and its account executives have streamlined to make everything as easy as possible."

"The window to harvest hops is narrow, but we need additional labor throughout the entire process of growing and processing. Working with wafla ensures we have the people to make the magic happen for breweries nationwide!"

"Wafla and Heritage University joined forces to provide our supervisors with useful, necessary, and engaging harassment prevention and leadership training. They were well-organized, and each instructor had the required experience to make meaningful connections with people in the agriculture industry. As an HR professional, asking employees to attend a training that may or may not be well-presented and meaningful is always a bit scary. You can trust wafla and Heritage to make it an enjoyable, engaging, and relevant experience."
