Turnover is a big issue in the cannabis industry. The average ratio for dispensaries is 55% in the first year, 30% within the first two months. Finding the right people to join your team can be difficult. Implementing best practices for hiring and managing your staff is a step in the right direction.
Top three best practices for hiring and managing your dream team
Culture & Environment
The workplace is where you and your employees are going to spend a lot of time. Remember that everyone has a choice in where they work; When you are interviewing a possible employee, they are also interviewing you as a possible employer. Making sure the culture and environment matches the personaility of the candidate, and vice versa, will increase the employee's investment in your business, bringing down your turnover percentage to save you time, money, and frustration.
Finding your Management Style
Every employee is different, a manager cannot approach each person with the management style. You must adjust your tactics to the employee you are speaking to or coaching. Some people learn by doing, some people are self-reliant and need space to grow. Communication with your team would be the easiest and quickest route to finding out what is best for them. Talk to each employee and ask what their expectations are from their manager.
Processes & Procedures
Implementing a business operational tool is vital to keeping your team organized. Having a purpose-built software solution to keep a business organized is essential to operating in the cannabis industry. Choosing the right software will allow a business owner to improve their operational workflow.
