There’s no doubt about it. Employee drug screening improves safety and productivity. The American Council for Drug Education Reports that employees who abuse drugs and alcohol suffer from being 33 percent less productive, 10 times more likely to miss work, and are responsible for 40 percent of all industrial fatalities. That’s why KRESS makes ordering drug screening that is compliant and accurate easy for HR managers and supervisors. Here’s how we do it:
Step 1: We customize a drug policy for your business in accordance with local, state, and federal laws.
Step 2: KRESS coordinates announcing and scheduling testing for your employees.
Step 3: The employer is only involved when adverse information is found in an employee’s results.
These three simple steps can save employers from losing productivity and reduce liability. All you need is one customized drug test for your employees. While there are dozens of substance abuse testing options available on the market, KRESS helps you select only the tests necessary for creating a more productive, safer workplace. This saves your business time and money.
These options are not only available for current employees, but they’re also important for pre-employment screening. Pre-employment drug screening can help employers cultivate a healthier and more productive workforce. Pre-employment drug testing has been shown to:
- Improve the overall quality of job applicants
- Reduce on-the-job accidents
- Reduce losses due to theft
- Reduce absenteeism
- Reduce employee turnover
- Eliminate wasted recruiting and training expense
- Improve employee morale and productivity
- Help control the costs of healthcare and workers compensation insurance
Whether it’s for pre-employment or on-going testing, drafting a drug and alcohol testing policy for your business is no simple task. That’s why KRESS’ representatives take care of nearly every step of creating a program and policy that will be sustainable and simple to execute.
