How Legalized Marijuana May Impact Your Workforce

Two words becoming top-of-mind for many manufacturing executives today are "marijuana" and "workforce." With the recent legalization of recreational and medical marijuana in South Dakota, new questions arise about how business leaders can keep their employees safe.

Executives face new complexities as they try to operate their businesses, keep workers safe and productive, and deal with the realities of employees taking advantage of these changes.

Steve Schad gave his interpretation of the amendment and provided some recommendations leaders should consider taking moving forward.

Steve Schad formed Optima Advisory, LLC to help businesses build the organizational capability they need to achieve planned growth and transformation objectives. Having worked across industries and sectors as an HR executive and consultant, he knows the missing ingredient is often strong human capital executive leadership. So, he set out to create a business model that provides “fractional” part-time or interim Chief HR Officer leaders for small to mid-sized companies that need new and better strategies to build executional capability, but which are not yet large or complex enough to justify having a full-time, seasoned, executive-level person in the top HR role.
