In organizations with high employee absenteeism rates (more than 15%), the implementation of a drug testing program appears to have an impact. Nine percent of organizations reported high absenteeism rates (>15%) prior to a drug testing program, whereas only 4% of organizations reported high absenteeism rates after the implementation of a drug testing program, a decrease of approximately 50%.
Do drug testing programs improve employee productivity rates? Nearly one-fifth (19%) of organizations experienced an increase in productivity after the implementation of a drug testing program.
How much of an impact do drug testing programs have on employee turnover rates? Employee turnover rates decreased nearly one-fifth (16%) in organizations after the implementation of drug testing programs.

The liability of NOT having a Drug-Free in the Workplace policy could cost YOU business.
REMEMBER:Drug abusers KNOWwhich Employer's DO NOT drug test so Employer's typically hire drug abuser's without knowing it! Don't be "Short-Sided" and say "I don't care what they do on their days off." Drug abusers do not leave their abuse at home or leave it at the door when they arrive to work. Companies who do not have a Drug-Free Workplace Policy are proven to pay higher insurance premiums than companies who do!
Setting up a policy for pre-employment and random testing your employees for substance abuse can save costs from loss of productivity, theft, accidents, absenteeism, increased costs for worker's compensation and healthcare benefits, and the increased costs of liability insurance premiums. AMDT can set up a testing program for YOU!
