Harvust helps Pt 1

With today’s Fruit Grower Report, I’m Bob Larson. Farmers know all too well the challenges of hiring a crew to do all their work. But there is a company that can make this chore much faster and much more efficient.

Harvust, based in Walla Walla, is a relatively new company that is streamlining human resources tasks, such as hiring new workers, communications and safety training, which has become a much bigger issue in the past couple of years. …

HALL … “Well, the connection to the pandemic is really what I think has highlighted the need for the services that our software provides to farms and the ability to interact with farm workers in a high-tech way , i.e. remotely was very attractive considering the set of circumstances the industry was facing.

Harvust co-founder James Hall says their bilingual service can make life easier for employers AND employees…

HALL … “And so, that’s it, from electronically writing all their hiring documents to their orientation training and then, like you said, keeping them there and making sure they get their monthly safety meetings, making sure they know where they need to work, what day, and really staying connected and engaged with the farm.

And that, says Hall, is time AND money saved…

HALL… “By doing that, we’re able to help our farms really cut costs on a lot of fronts and frankly when it comes to farming, time is the only currency that matters and being able to save them a lot of time. time.”

Tune in tomorrow to learn more about Harvust’s hiring, communication, and safety training benefits.
