Staffing Is Always Tough – WAHVE (Work At Home Vintage Experts) May Be Worth A Look
Hello Tague Members,
A few SIAA Master Agencies around the country have used WAHVE to help staff their AccessPlus teams with great success. WAHVE is an insurance based contract work provider and they offer seasoned contract workers in a variety of positions. If you are at a crossroad in your agency where you cannot afford a full-time employee, but you need help WAHVE may be a good option for you. The way it works is there is a setup fee and then you interview a number of WAHVEs to find the one you want to contract with. Then you pay WAHVE a per hour amount which covers the cost of pay, Work Comp, etc. While Tague Alliance has never used WAHVE I did look at them seriously when we have a couple of maternity leaves on our team. We were able to cover the workload with other staff, but WAHVE was going to be my “Plan B”. For some of you, WAHVE could be a “Plan A” to help you get some extra capacity that you need. We do not have a relationship with WAHVE so this is just a heads up on this resource that many agency owners are not aware of.
Cheers! Tony V
