Peak Season Workforce is a family-owned small business based in Mashpee, Mass. on Cape Cod. It was organized in 2002 as a division of Chip Bishop Communications and Management, Inc. to fill a demonstrated local need. At first, transportation and hospitality businesses on Cape Cod and the offshore island of Nantucket asked us to help fill seasonal jobs with international workers when American workers were not available. Over the years, Peak Season Workforce grew to represent scores of businesses in New England and across the nation with the same need. Now, Peak Season Workforce is recognized as one of the nation’s foremost business agents that help companies—large and small—secure federal H-2B work visas for seasonal workers.
