LOS ANGELES, December 6, 2018 (Newswire.com) - In its December issue, mg Magazine, the leading national cannabis business publication, recognizes the 50 American companies leading the market in workplace culture and employee satisfaction. mg Magazine is available online at https://mgretailer.com/
The cannabis industry employed over 200,000 people in 2017 and is expected to create another 400,000 jobs nationwide by 2021. The positions will range from part-time dispensary staff to C-suite executives, driving a vibrant economic engine that shows no signs of slowing.
What makes a company one of the best places to work? The mg staff and advisors evaluated hundreds of nominations, considering incentives, benefits, and reports from employees themselves in order to find companies that do right by their people. Though scattered from coast to coast and wildly divergent in size, all the honorees have one thing in common: From basic benefits to truly uncommon perks, they all value employees as much more than numbers on a balance sheet.

This undertaking was an eye-opener, even for us. Although the legal cannabis industry is expanding rapidly, it's still very young. Nevertheless, all the honorees on this year's list offer benefits that rival or surpass those offered by much larger mainstream operations. We'd especially like to applaud the companies that pay homage to the industry's spirit by providing paid time off for benevolent volunteerism.Kathee Brewer, Director of Content for mg Magazine's parent company, CANN Media Group
