Staffing Companies Improve Workplace for All by Drug Testing

By Bill Nee, VP Sales/Marketing uVera Diagnostics

Staffing companies hire and place nearly 15 million temporary and contract workers in the U.S. each year, according to the American Staffing Association. On average, more than three million temporary or contract employees work for staffing companies during any given week.

Whether assisting companies in hiring permanent employees or employing temporary workers on a contract basis to fill staffing needs, businesses in the staffing industry have an immense impact on workplace environments across the United States.

The economic effects aren’t the only notable benefit that staffing firms provide — they also influence how safe and productive our workplaces are by carefully screening job candidates to make sure they’re a good fit. Hiring individuals that have the right qualifications, skills, and professional characteristics to ensure a win-win for job applicants and businesses requires expertise and the right tools — such as drug testing.

How Drug Testing by Staffing Companies Creates a Better Workplace for All

Pre-employment drug screening helps staffing professionals identify prospective hires that might create an unsafe or unproductive work environment.

Drug abuse and addiction can wreak havoc on a workplace, so it is important to detect issues up front rather than after a business has invested time and money into a new hire.

Drug testing can help staffing agencies and their business clients reduce the problems of:

  • Poor attendance and absenteeism
  • Poor work quality and errors
  • Work-related accidents and injuries
  • Employee turnover
  • Distractions that diminish productivity
  • Theft
  • Workplace conflicts
  • Decreased team morale

By screening potential hires for drug use, staffing agencies help reduce client businesses’ exposure to legal issues and workers compensation claims. And by recognizing possible drug abuse problems in individuals, they can help direct those suffering from addiction to resources that can assist them in overcoming their problem.
