Human resource tips for cannabis operations

As COVID-19 swept across the globe, shutting down countries, there was an unexpected side effect taking place in the cannabis economy. Many cannabis companies that may have made hiring or operational errors have used the pandemic as an opportunity for correction even as they are staying open and deemed an essential service, writes Bryan Passman, Co-Founder and CEO of Hunter + Esquire.

Operations that over-hired based on “what if” scenarios of possible growth have used this to exit or furlough unsuspecting employees with little to no explanation why. Working in the cannabis executive recruitment space for several years (and being in the people business for decades), this is heartbreaking to see and hear.

New hires should be based on new and real business needs grounded in data and facts instead of staffing up because a company is hoping for amazing growth. Companies using this pandemic as a correction must be more transparent and human in their actions.

Head on over to the National Cannabis Industry Association’s (NCIA) Blog to read the full story from Passman.
