BioMatters article

E4 Bioscience managing partner, Dr. Shaun Opie was invited to write an article in the spring 2023 issue of “BioMatters”. In the article Dr. Opie discusses the use of pre-employment Harrison Assessments to recruit better employees.

The Harrison Assessment is an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) compliant and ISO 16667 compliant

Article summary: “Cannabis testing laboratories face a particularly difficult set of challenges when it comes to recruiting top talent: specifically, the cannabis laboratory industry is highly specialized and has a limited pool of qualified candidates. Additionally, the pressure to keep pace with rapidly changing regulations, advancing technology, decreasing reimbursement, and fierce competition means that finding and retaining the right employees is mission critical. Unfortunately, many recruiting methods used by cannabis laboratory hiring managers are much less effective than they believe and directly contribute to low productivity and morale, high turnover, and loss of institutional knowledge within the first year.”
