Key to Life
Living Soil Solutions
Indo Expo’s Workforce Development track will host a panel of cannabis industry professionals discussing their experiences both positive and negative. The cannabis workforce faces unique challenges and obstacles. Low pay, little to no training, shifting regulations, and high turnover plague the industry. The two quotes below outline two separate issues that will create huge voids in the existing workforce. Not only from lack quality applicants but recruiting from more mature regulated states where employees are trained to work in a regulated environment. Will your key people stick with you VS. a six figure out of state offer? How much IP leaves with them? Are you always training new employees for the same job? This solution-based panel will help you identify current and potential issues to help with employee retention and reduce costly turnover.
“The general overview of dispensary budtenders is that they don’t tend to stay around long as the job role has a high turnover rate. In fact, nearly 60% of employees don’t last past two months – and only 40% make it past the first.”- Matthew Hughes, NCIA Blog
