America’s High Hashish Employers 2021: Name for Nominations

According to everyone, 2020 was a miserable year. A killer virus swept the planet and destroyed lives and livelihoods. To contain the pandemic, governments around the world have issued stay-at-home orders and closed non-essential businesses. Companies lay off staff; some closed forever. As society and trade reopened, the economy was stuck in a catch-22: companies could no longer operate because they had too few employees, but they couldn’t afford to hire more because unemployed consumers couldn’t could buy something.

The world will never be the same, but in a way that is a good thing. The pandemic showed that office workers and their employers could benefit from remote working by lowering overhead costs, increasing productivity and leaving more time for family. Pandemic lockdowns also encouraged people to reconsider their career choices. Many workers opted for better wages and benefits rather than returning to previous jobs. A recent study by the McKinsey Global Institute found that more than 100 million workers in the world’s eight largest economies could change jobs by 2030.

Extraordinary change

The pandemic ushered in a period of extraordinary change in all industries. Employers and employees have learned that they must rely on each other to survive. To get the most out of shocked teams, companies pay more attention to the mental, physical, and financial well-being of their employees. In return, happier, better adapted employees are more productive and less likely to leave the company. It’s a win-win situation.

The cannabis industry is ahead of the game. Also thanks to the fact that it was declared “material” at the beginning of the pandemic – along with pharmacies, doctor’s offices and grocery stores – the industry had its best year to date in terms of sales and overall growth. Support for legalization has never been stronger, nearly 70 percent of Americans are in favor now, and the political discussion in Washington, DC is turning from when to when.

In 2021, as more states open the doors to cannabis retailers, job vacancies across the board have increased dramatically. Recruiters work on the phone like never before, collaborating with highly qualified professionals from other industries. Seasoned cannabis professionals are in high demand in mature markets, while companies in new legal markets from Detroit to Tulsa to Boston offer job seekers the opportunity to break into an industry estimated to be worth $ 100 billion by 2030.

As 2022 approaches, cannabis companies are looking for creative ways to attract these new workers while retaining knowledgeable, experienced employees. There are many ways to define unique corporate cultures and working environments, be it through flexible working hours and social awareness or overloaded service packages and investments in training and further education.
