FlowerHire To Host Virtual Talent Conference On Jan. 28
FlowerHire, a staffing and talent strategy firm serving the regulated cannabis industry, has launched its new platform, CareersinCannabis.com. The specialized career portal equips both companies and job candidates with the tools and insights necessary to build a robust, quality workforce. The service officially launches at the inaugural Careers in Cannabis virtual talent conference on Jan. 28.
The AI-powered software behind CareersinCannabis.com is enginX – created by engin sciences, inc.. The platform blends psychographic data with FlowerHire’s cannabis and HR expertise to create quantified PowerProfiles, a fusion of hard and soft skills overlayed with relevant personality traits. The PowerProfile helps candidates find a match with the best open roles. The system gamifies the job application process, allowing HR managers to quickly evaluate applicants, engage with viable candidates, and route people to the jobs to which they are best suited.
“While cannabis is one of the fastest-growing industries in the country, there’s a scalability issue that has yet to be addressed,” said David Belsky, CEO of FlowerHire. “As with any industry, cannabis is, at its core, only as strong as its operational infrastructure. Over the next 10 years, we anticipate more than one million jobs created within the cannabis ecosystem, and CareersinCannabis.com will effectively address the challenge of acquisition, retention and development of talent across all levels within the industry.”
Many of FlowerHire’s clients, which include some of the most recognized companies in the industry, found success when it came to using a staffing and talent firm to fill C-level and senior salaried positions within their teams; however, there was still a disconnect when it came time to staff the hundreds of thousands of hourly and frontline employees. CareersinCannabis.com addresses these issues head-on, unlocking the potential of the cannabis workforce and reducing turnover within the industry.
The website launches in conjunction with the Careers in Cannabis Virtual Talent Conference, focusing on the opportunities and challenges faced by executives and HR leaders in the fastest growing industry in the country. Hosted by Jacobi Holland and Lulu Tsui of REVEL, the event features more than 200 companies, 50+ speakers, and musical guests DJ Babu & Rakaa of Dilated Peoples.
