Experience you can count on

WAHVE makes it possible for you to get the right talent for the job. We match your company with veteran (or as we say – vintage) insurance professionals who want to phase into retirement. You get a motivated, committed worker – our wahves are eager to share their skills and knowledge in a remote position. And you get quality – every one of our remote workers has 25+ years of expertise that they bring to getting the work done.

WAHVE has helped hundreds of insurance firms fill critical gaps in their staffing while helping retiring industry professionals extend their careers working from home. They lose the commute – you gain exceptional skills.

A talent resource solution

Unlike a temp agency, recruiting firm or headhunter, WAHVE is a freelance talent platform that specializes in matching vintage insurance professionals with your firm’s requirements. We work exclusively with the insurance industry, and we understand exactly what you need. Our affordable, smart talent resource solution takes the stress out of finding the right expertise.

The right match

WAHVE takes the guesswork out of finding talent. WAHVE qualifies every candidate, then matches their skills to your needs, part time or full time. With an experienced wahve, minimal training is required (in some cases, none at all). Our wahves are tech-savvy and have the exact expertise you’re looking for. What’s more, wahves integrate easily with your current staff.

With WAHVE, you get a productive, motivated worker without spending excess time and money on recruitment, training or turnover. Plus, wahves work from home with their own equipment, giving you additional savings in office overhead.

A WAHVE of change

WAHVE breaks down borders. We enable firms to find the right fit, no matter where the talent lives. Our wahves have proven consistently that location is irrelevant. Our wahves prove every day that productivity is not tied to an office. Companies that have hired wahves say the level of productivity from their wahves exceeds expectations.

WAHVE is redefining the retirement paradigm. We enable qualified, skilled insurance professionals to continue their careers as freelance professionals into retirement. By connecting these industry veterans with companies looking for their knowledge, WAHVE enables these insurance experts to pretire and continue to contribute from their home office.

A wealth of talent

No matter the job, there’s a wahve ready to tackle it. WAHVE connects hundreds of companies with thousands of insurance pretirees located across the country. Our wahves have the industry experience, hands-on knowledge, and designations and licensures needed to get the job done.

Our award-winning approach has received endorsements by more than half of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers Association (IIABA) State Associations nationwide. We have also been endorsed by the Clark Howard Show.

We think our service and our wahves are second to none. But don’t take our word for it – let our clients tell you the value they’ve received from WAHVE. Read our Case Studies to find out how WAHVE has already benefited hundreds of satisfied customers.

WAHVE’s CEO, Sharon Emek, talks about how WAHVE brings exceptional pretiring talent to work for you, eliminating the burdensome costs of recruiting, hiring and onboarding for your organization.

"It could take months to train someone. Wahves bring a lot of experience and knowledge, and they are doing the work because they want to do it."

How WAHVE works

Expertise Without Boundaries

WAHVE removes geographical barriers. Wahve workers are skilled, trained experts from across the country. Their primary goal – to deliver dependable, efficient results that drive your business objectives.

No office required – our wahves work remotely from their fully equipped home offices. And despite the distance, wahves are readily accessible the same as if they were in your office. No matter what job they’re performing for you, wahves work with your in-house staff to obtain the best outcomes.

Unparalleled talent

WAHVE’s unique qualifying and matching process is unmatched. Our highly trained pretiring insurance professionals go through a thorough and lengthy qualifying process, which include insurance knowledge and computer skills assessments so that you get the best level of expertise available.

What to Expect

When hiring a wahve, your company can expect a smooth transition. We manage it all, from matching the right veteran talent to your specific requirements, to helping you select the wahve that best fits your needs, to assisting you in setting up your wahve to be fully functional within a few days. Plus we’re here for you to manage the relationship between you and your wahve.  Your wahve is dedicated to your firm for the duration of the assignment. Should you want to replace a wahve, we take care of that, too. No hassles.

We also handle the technical transition. Our technical team ensures secure connectivity between your systems and your wahve. You can also expect minimal training – most wahves are adept at various systems and applications. You show them your process and they do the rest.
