FlowerHire And engin sciences Host Virtual Talent Conference To Launch CareersinCannabis.com
With expanded state-wide legalization taking effect this year and the prospect of national cannabis decriminalization closer than ever, the cannabis industry is again primed for another year of rapid growth. But with that growth comes challenges, from scaling operations to ensuring compliance and – most critically – hiring and retaining a specialized and knowledgeable workforce to serve the surging cannabis market.
Aimed at addressing the industry’s burgeoning staffing challenges, cannabis recruiting and executive search firm FlowerHire – in partnership with technology platform engin sciences inc. – is launching CareersinCannabis.com. The website is a first-of-its-kind human resources solution for the cannabis industry, leveraging engin sciences’ industry-specific data and machine learning to meet the rising need for skilled workers throughout the cannabis supply chain, from c-suite to frontline.
In conjunction with the launch of the platform, FlowerHire and engin sciences are collaborating on a series of events to support the industry, the first of which is CareersinCannabis.com Virtual Talent Conference, scheduled for this Thursday, January 28, from 9 am PST until 12 pm PST.
In addition to networking and educational sessions for executives, hiring managers and jobseekers, the event will feature a variety of luminaries and leaders in the cannabis industry from companies like Jushi Holdings Inc. (OTC:JUSHF), Ascend Wellness and Eaze, who will speak to the unique challenges of finding talent and scaling a business in an entirely new and developing industry.

More Than A Jobs Fair
The CareersinCannabis.com virtual event is looking to establish a new paradigm in how the cannabis industry will structure itself through this ongoing period of rapid growth.
Principals from the FlowerHire and engin sciences teams, including FlowerHire CEO David Belsky and engin sciences Founder & CEO and Co-Founder of CareersinCannabis.com Sloane Barbour are among the featured speakers who will share their perspective on how the cannabis industry is utilizing technology to hire and retain the workforce that will ultimately constitute its future.
The CEOs will address the unique staffing and retention challenges facing cannabis business and explain their own approach to solving these issues through the recent beta launch of the FlowerHire X hiring platform, which is powered by engin sciences.
The event has also placed special emphasis on incorporating the complex history and diverse legacy of cannabis and legalization. To that end, the virtual event is built around fireside chats that spotlight professional and cultural experts from throughout the cannabis industry, including Co-Founder & CEO of The Peoples Dispensary Christine De La Rosa, CEO of Ball Family Farms Chris Ball and Happy Munkey Co-Founder Vlad Bautista.
A Defining Moment In Cannabis
In addition to the main stage speakers, this first CareersinCannabis.com Virtual Talent Conference will include networking and education seminars sponsored by event partners Green Flower Media, Leafwire and Benzinga.
These virtual sessions are available to all attendees and represent an opportunity for cannabis business leaders to discuss with their peers how they have tackled the challenges of scaling their business and retaining talent. For jobseekers, the seminars will provide career-specific information and first-hand industry insights into the skills and expertise that are most in-demand among cannabis companies.
The inaugural CareersinCannabis.com Virtual Talent Conference intends to bring together the key stakeholders in the quickly growing industry, and establish for it a new precedent in the people and processes that will power cannabis business for the next decade.
