Cannabis legalization sparked a huge wave of investment, speculation, and hiring as a formerly black market became another cog in the economic machine. Shifting attitudes on the previously maligned herb combined with policy and policing pragmatism have wrenched marijuana into the sphere of legitimate business – creating tax revenue and jobs. The legal marijuana market is expected to be worth $4.3 billion in 2019.

The cannabis industry in Canada has developed rapidly, sprouting manufacturers, risk management firmsdigital enablers, and even HR consulting firms to fill the expected demand of businesses and consumers. Founded in 2015, Cannabis At Work is currently the country’s only recruitment, training, and HR consultancy entirely focused on the cannabis industry. The firm places qualified candidates, conducts online industry training, and delivers workplace impairment training. Cannabis At Work also delivers thinkpieces on industry trends and speaks at cannabis policy conferences and other events.

With cannabis firms on a hiring tear to scale up and address supply shortages, effective HR services are increasingly important – especially in the case of high-volume hiring. Reflecting the increasing maturity of the sector, Cannabis At Work is now a founding member of the Cannabis HR Network, which launched at Lift Expo in Vancouver last week. The network will provide HR professionals in the cannabis industry “an opportunity to learn, share, collaborate and build relationships,” according to a release from the consultancy. Cannabis At Work CEO Alison McMahon will chair the Strategic Advisory Committee of the HR network.
