High Bluff Group (“HBG”) is pleased to announce the launch of their redesigned website to reflect a shift in demand for talent in line with their vision to be the most complete human capital management organization exclusively supporting the cannabis industry.
The new website includes valuable content specifically targeting candidates who may be interested in exploring careers in cannabis. Because of the legal and political issues swirling in the space, the website also provides educational content on emerging trends on a local and national basis in the blog section called “What’s the bluff about?”
“When we first entered the market, we had a very clearly defined value proposition in terms of our service offering and target market. We learned quickly that the need for talent, as well as the interest received from candidates exploring the cannabis space, compelled us to rapidly implement our two-year plan in a much shorter time frame We expanded our initial service beyond just Direct Hire and now includes contract staffing, as well as professional payrolling,” said Managing Partner Michael Larkins.
Initially launched in early 2019, High Bluff Group quickly demonstrated an ability to find skilled and unique talent for testing labs. Shortly thereafter, HBG expanded into other industry segments to include brand owners, cultivators, manufacturers, and investors in need of finding talent to elevate their organizations. “Companies have been struggling with navigating the changing regulations along with the day-to-day operations of their business. HBG combines a deep understanding of the industry with proven recruiting and talent development techniques that result in long-term partnerships. By engaging HBG’s seasoned recruiters, you will not only receive high-caliber talent but avoid potential compliance violations,” said Larkins.
“The main issue is the lack of staffing experience many of these companies possess,” states Larkins. “With a tight labor market, this industry brings even more challenges to finding talent with the right experience. Not only do cannabis companies need a partner that understands the complexity of the industry, but they also need someone who understands employment law and can keep them compliant with new regulations and changes. We are in a very dynamic space when it comes to cannabis!”
With unemployment at a record low, HBG identifies passive candidates and properly vets their experience, background and personalities to ensure a legitimate fit. HBG leans on decades of proven experience to connect exceptional candidates to advantageous businesses. By educating their clients and presenting diverse solutions, HBG is able to foster long-term partnerships to address growing needs.
The cannabis industry is booming and High Bluff Groups’ diverse areas of expertise allow them with the ability to make a remarkable impact on this captivating industry.
