Why should your company use an outside service for new employee drug tests?

Hesitant to use an outside service for new employee drug tests? Drug and alcohol abuse can seriously impact workplace culture and productivity. Outside services, like Background Experts, screen new employees so that companies can identify and prevent substance abuse in the work environment.

How can drug use affect your workplace?

  • Poor decision-making —When people work under the influence of drugs, they sometimes make poor decisions. This poor decision-making can affect co-workers and supervisors.
  • High employee turnover — Drug users in the workplace can contribute to a high employee turnover rate. Employers who do not test their employees for drug use may be more vulnerable to a high employee turnover.
  • Inefficient work — Employees who use drugs are usually unable to work efficiently. Drug use in the workplace can increase the amount of time it takes to complete a task or even affect the quality of work.
