I prolonged having a human resource branch with my cannabis dispensary, then once I started opening up multiple dispensary locations & expanding the building, it was timeâ€¦ Human resources are just too necessary in a big business! I started looking for a human resource business partner for my dispensary.
It wasn’t simple to find.
I wanted people who were official with cannabis, the area & would work well with my team. I also didn’t want a whole team of people, just 1 lady. I was hopeful I wouldn’t need to hire the HR team to be around full time either. I wanted to ideally call them every now & then. I found my dispensary HR team through a cannabis software company, however they have dispensary HR software for sale & the actual people in HR. It was a 1 stop shop for me. I talked to the business & told them my expectations. I wanted to provide HR & I was okay buying the program. I Didn’t want someone in my store everyday & always paying them a salary. So I have a area time human resource partner, but anytime there is an issue I can call them up to resolve it. They charge per iphone call & issue that arises. I save money doing this though. I am entirely happy that I have something like this now. It just feels more professional & like the right move. Other dispensary owners correctly keep a full time employee to handle something like this. That isn’t financially smart.
