Summary: The CEO of the leading cannabis industry business solutions company Green Leaf Business Solutions Mark Rodriguez has recently been featured in an MJBizDaily article on the negative effect of budtender turnover on the cannabis sector and the solution to the problem.
Vista, CA, United States – Greenleaf Business Solutions is a San Diego-based company specializing in delivering payroll and human resources services to marijuana businesses. The company’s CEO Marc Rodriguez has been asked to provide valuable firsthand insights for the Marijuana Business Daily article Budtender turnover hinders the cannabis industry – here’s how to improve it, and he delivered.
Launched in 2011, Marijuana Business Daily is a Colorado-based business news outlet serving the business side of the cannabis and hemp industries in the US, Canada and globally. The outlet covers the legal side of the recreational and medical cannabis industry.
Mr. Rodriguez offered his opinion on how to resolve a burning issue in the cannabis industry, which is budtender turnover. He commented that, despite the popular belief, cannabis retail is not in fact “immune from all the other retail trends in traditional business.”
When asked to share his ideas on how to fix the problem, Mr. Rodriguez said that the key employee retention factor in the cannabis sector is legitimizing the employee experience. The issue is that many marijuana employees do not have the same privileges as employees in other modern industries, such as online pay stubs or 401(k) plans.
It is businesses like Greenleaf Business Solutions that provide these types of HR and payroll services to cannabis companies. According to Mr. Rodriguez, in order to attract and keep quality talent, it is essential for cannabis-based payroll and employee services to become more accessible and more affordable.
