“I have been working with Laura and Danielle on managing our benefits at TRI from 2017 to present. They are both really amazing professionally and personally. They always take time to listen and understand all our employees’ needs and queries, and then resolve all the issues very quickly. They also stay on top of everything, are knowledgeable and very diligent in providing all the support that I need, not to mention making themselves available to me late in the evenings and providing additional resources to me whenever I need them. They provide an intimate and unique type of support that’s so important to the success of my role. I’m extremely happy with their services and I’d highly recommend them without any hesitation.”

“Trinity struggled with response times and quality customer service until we took a chance and switched to Afoa. We are a family founded company and we operate with heart and integrity. We were looking for a broker that would mirror those qualities and we found that in this partnership. Our payroll and benefits administrator has been so thankful for the paradigm shift in service. One of our main vendors recently made the decision to use Afoa as well and we are both very satisfied! Afoa has remained true to their word and commitments.”

"Laura Afoa and her Team are the best! In my 25+ years in Human Resources, I have never encountered a Broker that has been so helpful and quick with responses. I feel very spoiled by them and know that I can count on them. The team is efficient at everything they do, in fact, without them I would feel like I would be out of compliance as I can count in them to keep me up to date and on task. I give this team my thumbs up all the way and then some! And will forever refer them to my colleagues."
