Cannabis Industry Employee Engagement Survey

With thousands of employees working in the cannabis industry, the industry has become a significant employer in the states that have legalized cannabis production, processing, and consumption.  Ensuring that the industry is creating a satisfying work environment and a fulfilled workforce is key to attracting and retaining top talent and provides certainty to business planning. 

Furthermore, today’s workers not only seek this sense of purpose within their places of work, but have also been known to accept less compensation, if fulfilled in other ways, offered “nontraditional” benefits, and/or opportunities to engage in authentic community activities.

 As the leading cannabis industry organization, NCIA desires to see our member businesses thrive, with tens of thousands of satisfied and fulfilled workers, eager to participate and add their talent and passion to our work.  We also seek to be an industry that improves the lives of not only our members’ patients, clients, and customers, but their communities.

In this first Cannabis Industry Employee Engagement Survey (being conducted by Needle Consultants, LLC, a Corporate Social Responsibility firm and sponsored by NCIA), we seek to gather baseline data regarding:

·      Overall Worker Satisfaction

·      Worker Needs and Desires around Benefits

·      Worker Desires around Community Engagement opportunities
 
We believe the results of this survey will provide immeasurable value as companies within our industry seek to build happy and fulfilling work environments.
