CannAwards Best New Product: Chem Dawg #4 x Alien OG Kush
The Best New Product (strain, flower or medical product) category highlights a
groundbreaking and innovative product that has the potential to create a new trend in the Cannabis industry. LivWell won the category for its exclusive sativa dominant hybrid strain, Chem Dawg #4 x Alien OG Kush. This proprietary strain was developed by LivWell’s team of innovative farmers, geneticists and scientists, and is one of LivWell’s top sellers.
CannAwards Most Innovative Service: LivWell’s Intranet
The Most Innovative Service category recognizes a game-changing new service model implemented in 2015 that transformed and delivered better solutions/outcomes for the Cannabis industry. LivWell was honored for its work in building an intranet platform from the ground up in order to provide consistent communications and education for its roughly 500 employees spread across the state.
The Drupal-based platform enhances communications and serves as an information exchange. It’s a communications hub, document repository, conduit for online education and training, event planner, polling station and HR board. The intranet allows LivWell to instantly disseminate breaking company and industry news and developments across its employee base. It also serves as the platform for LivWell’s ongoing education courses (offered online) that enable employees to stay up to date on the newest products and latest regulations to ensure top-notch customer service and full compliance. Employees also engage with the online courses via the intranet to advance their careers by gaining the tools they need to move up into positions with more responsibility and higher pay.
