Productivity can be measured in many ways – in terms of work produced, orders shipped, customers satisfied, and more. At the end of the day, however, productivity is about employees being focused on the task at hand while at work. In today’s environment, employers face all kinds of threats to employee productivity and workplace effectiveness, from unauthorized web surfing to employees texting on the job, and more. However, nothing is as thoroughly detrimental to employee productivity as drug and alcohol abuse.
An employee with an alcohol abuse program is, on average, absent from work four to eight times more often than normal. Substance abusers, when they do come to work, cut their own productivity by one third or more. The loss of productivity associated with workplace injuries is even worse, considering that half of all workplace accidents are tied to drug or alcohol abuse.
Drug-Free WorkPlace Solutions is built not only to help you overcome these odds, but is designed to help your employees feel better about staying focused on the job by giving employees online training opportunities, promotional materials and resources, and access to an Employee Assistance Program.
