(12 days ago)
COLUMBIA, Md: Greenhouse Wellness, a medical marijuana dispensary in Columbia, Maryland, won one of the top awards in the Baltimore Business Journal's Best Workplaces' micro category (10-24 employees).
Best workplace nominees compete in categories based on number of employees (micro, small, midsize, and large), and winners are selected based on the results of an objective workplace survey conducted by Quantum Workplace.
The Quantum workplace survey assessed several factors in selecting award participants including work/life balance, wages, overall environment, and "neat perks." Both full-time and part-time employees were surveyed.
Among many of the reasons Greenhouse Wellness was selected to win the award, the Baltimore Business Journal noted the dispensary offers generous time off and salary, a diverse and inclusive family-like environment, and perks like catered lunches and other fun employee outings. The dispensary is the only medical marijuana business to be featured in the program, and the first in the state to win an award of this nature.
Gina Dubbe, Managing Director of Greenhouse Wellness says, "Winning this award isn't just a big deal for the dispensary, it's a validation for the entire medical marijuana industry. As a newer industry that can be met with speculation, we knew that receiving this award will help the public and the business community see our work as we do—providing medicine that treats those who are sick and feeling hopeless."
