What Every Manager Should Know About Drugs in the Workplace

Training: Four 1-hour sessions

An estimated 6.5 percent of full-time and 8.6 percent of part time workers are illicit drug users. The cost to business is staggering, resulting in loss of productivity, increased injury, theft, and increased workers compensation and insurance premiums. Most companies say they have a drug-free work place, but do little to protect their assets.

Managers will learn: how to recognize substance abuse issues before they become costly, life skills strategies to help employees make better choices, and outside resources to help their employees.
