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

Walla Walla-based Harvust is a relatively new company that streamlines the human resources duties, like bringing on new workers, communications, and safety training, that’s become a much bigger issue the past couple of years …

HALL … “Well, the nexus with the pandemic really is what, I think, highlighted the need for the services that our software provides farms and the ability to interact with farmworkers in a way that is high-tech, that is remote was very appealing given the set of circumstances that the industry faced.”

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

HALL … “And so, that’s everything from doing all of their hiring paperwork electronically to their orientation training and then, like you said, keeping them there and making sure that they’re getting their monthly safety meetings, making sure that they know where they need to work, which day and really staying connected and engaged to the farm.”

And that, Hall says is time AND money saved …

HALL … “By doing so, we’re able to help our farms really lower their 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.”

Tune in tomorrow for more on the Harvust advantages in hiring, communications, and safety training.
