New HR Tech platform, powered by engin sciences, inc., blends qualitative insights with automated tech to connect businesses with all levels of industry talent.
LOS ANGELES — FlowerHire, the leading staffing and talent strategy firm serving the regulated cannabis industry, announced today the launch of its new platform, CareersinCannabis.com. The specialized career portal equips both companies and job candidates with the tools and insights necessary to build a robust, quality workforce. The service officially launches at the inaugural Careers in Cannabis virtual talent conference on January 28.
The AI-powered software behind CareersinCannabis.com is enginX – created by engin sciences, inc.. The platform blends psychographic data with FlowerHire’s cannabis and HR expertise to create quantified PowerProfiles™, a fusion of hard and soft skills overlayed with relevant personality traits. The PowerProfile helps candidates find a match with the best open roles. The system gamifies the job application process, allowing HR managers to quickly evaluate applicants, engage with viable candidates, and route people to the jobs to which they are best suited.
“While cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the country, there’s a scalability issue that has yet to be addressed,” said David Belsky, CEO of FlowerHire. “As with any industry, cannabis is, at its core, only as strong as its operational infrastructure. Over the next 10 years, we anticipate more than one million jobs created within the cannabis ecosystem, and CareersinCannabis.com will effectively address the challenge of acquisition, retention and development of talent across all levels within the industry.”
Many of FlowerHire’s clients, which include some of the most recognized companies in the industry, found success when it came to using a staffing and talent firm to fill C-level and senior salaried positions within their teams; however, there was still a disconnect when it came time to staff the hundreds of thousands of hourly and frontline employees. CareersinCannabis.com addresses these issues head-on, unlocking the potential of the cannabis workforce and reducing turnover within the industry.
“We’re incredibly proud to power a much needed and transformative platform key to the fundamental growth of the legal cannabis industry,” said Sloane Barbour, Founder and CEO at engin sciences. “Our vision to help hourly and frontline workers fits perfectly with the cannabis industry’s needs today and, as the country reopens, our software will help millions of Americans get back to work and take control of their career.”
The website launches in conjunction with the Careers in Cannabis Virtual Talent Conference, focusing on the opportunities and challenges faced by executives and HR leaders in the fastest growing industry in the country. Hosted by Jacobi Holland and Lulu Tsui of REVEL, the event features more than 200 companies, 50+ speakers, and musical guests DJ Babu & Rakaa of Dilated Peoples.
