11:35 AM Re-thinking the Tried and True: Prioritizing the Needs of the Business While Developing the Workforce Strategy of a New Industry

There is no quick fix to employee engagement, but there is a direct correlation between engaged employees and increased productivity. The Cannabis Industry is new and growing at a rapid pace. Without an existing talent pool, HR executives are not only being challenged with quickly onboarding individuals and overcoming the learning curve to adequately staff, but also predicting the future success of the business.  

In this discussion we will:
•Gain an understanding on how to develop a quick onboarding process  
•Uncover the benefits of incorporating agile methodology to workforce planning strategy
•Articulate clear paths to grow leaders from within
•Establish how to prioritize base on the needs of the business  
•Identifying new methods to measure candidate and employee engagement and experience
