WorkJam, the world’s leading digital workplace for frontline employees, announced today the release of a new case study featuring customer Green Growth Brands (GGB). The success story provides an in-depth look at how GGB is using the WorkJam Digital Workplace platform to unleash the potential of its workforce through agile scheduling, experiential learning, tailored recognition, optimal communication, and much more.
As a brand-new business in the rapidly growing CBD and cannabis industry and following the launch of its first mall-based CBD shop in February 2019, GGB quickly recognized the need for effective and accessible communication and scheduling across its 900 employees and rapidly growing frontline workforce. The company began a search for a digital workplace platform that could scale with its rapid expansion and constant hiring and training.
The company landed on WorkJam’s 30-Day Quick Start implementation option, which allows for a fully functional setup that would be accessible within weeks, providing the flexibility needed to evolve alongside GGB and the ability to add additional WorkJam modules as needs evolve.
“We are an incredibly agile start-up and had shop launch plans that were aggressive,” said Kellie Wurtzman, Head of Stores of Green Growth Brands. “WorkJam complemented our all-hands-on-deck attitude and high level of responsiveness, keeping the project moving quickly. The tool is critical to how we communicate with, operate and educate our shop organization.”
Within their first month, GGB had a fully operational digital workplace platform that can grow with their company, provide powerful employee insights, foster robust and efficient knowledge-sharing, and engage employees from the second they’re hired. The team reports the level of employee engagement has surpassed expectations, with staff posting photos, seeking advice, and sharing wins on communication channels.
“We are thrilled to be part of Green Growth Brand’s success story,” said Steven Kramer, CEO and co-founder of WorkJam. “Through flexible scheduling, real-time communication, and training modules, Green Growth Brands has reached a level of employee engagement necessary to bring exceptional retail experiences to consumers across the U.S.”
