Nectar is honored to be among the Top 50 Cannabis Employers in 2019! mg Magazine’s annual list, “recognizes excellence in the workplace culture and employee satisfaction.” Hundreds of business nominations from a variety of sectors in the cannabis industry were evaluated. The list was then narrowed down to the very best the industry has to offer, according to public and private resources and employee testimonies.
Ranking the Top 50 Cannabis Employers
All businesses listed are among the few in the cannabis industry where employee benefits, perks, and incentives meet the standards of mainstream employers. The companies ranked according to employee satisfaction, benefits, company culture, social responsibility, and charitable giving. They must also be in operation for at least a year and headquartered in the United States, with a minimum of ten full-time employees. According to Darren Roberts, chief executive officer for mg’s parent company CANN Media Group, “This year’s honorees set a high bar not only for cannabis, but for other industries, as well. Each company on the list realizes valued employees and communities make a significant contribution to their success.”
Only two percent of the companies included in the Top 50 list operate in the retailing sector — making Nectar stand out even more. We are recognized for offering employees comprehensive insurance plans, and health-and-wellness programs. Additionally, we provide flexible scheduling, paid time off, paid birthdays and holidays, and employee discounts. Our culture includes regular employee recognition, reviews, and merit-based raises. We also offer classroom facilitated employee product training, and opportunities for continuing education, certification, and cannabis industry accreditations. And in 2020, we plan to continue to be ahead of the curve by offering all Budtenders a starting wage of $15 an hour.
