Executive Search and Staffing Done Right
Hiring qualified talent for the cannabis/CBD industry can be time-consuming and expensive. On the other hand, finding the right job in the cannabis/CBD industry can be a hassle. Our ongoing mission at CannabizTeam is to place the right people in the right companies, so both feel at home.
Homelessness remains the most challenging societal issue in our hometown of San Diego, with an estimated 8,000 homeless men, women, and children living in San Diego County. Finding compassionate and effective solutions to address this challenge is a top priority for everyone at CannabizTeam.
To date, most local and national efforts have focused on the immediate issue of providing housing for the homeless. While we believe the efforts to provide basic housing are critical, in 2018, we decided to focus on a less discussed part of the homeless solution: job training. We want to help the homeless re-enter the workforce with meaningful employment for the long haul through the CannabizTeam AimHigher job training program–launched in 2019.
In partnership with SD Task Force for the homeless and Green Flower Media online training programs, the AimHigher program has set an ambitious goal to provide basic training for 20% of SD’s homeless by 2021 and 50% by 2025. Our core training program includes:
- Basic skills assessment
- Best industries to pursue based on skillset and current job market
- Perspective on how employers make hiring decisions
- Interview training
CannabizTeam supports this effort with an annual contribution of up to 5% of its net profits. These funds are allocated to assist in covering the cost of the training and providing clothes and uniforms for job interviews and the first month on the job.
CannbizTeam is proud to have teamed up with leading businesses in strategic partnerships that offer real value to our clients: Green Flower Media, the global leader in cannabis education, Fisher Phillips, the foremost labor and employment law firm in the cannabis industry, and Entourage Effect Capital, the leading private equity firm focused exclusively on the cannabis industry.
