UK Study: Alcohol ‘biggest threat’ to workplace productivity


If this study doesn’t convince you to randomly screen your employees for alcohol use (or drug use, for that matter), I don’t know what will. This UK study provides some staggering information on employee alcohol use in the workplace that may leave some of you surprised. While it is great that employers are conducting pre-employment alcohol and drug tests on their employees, it is equally important to continually screen your employees to make sure they are not drinking before work and habitually using illegal substances. Alcohol and drug use are the predominant factors in decreased productivity, absenteeism, and workplace accidents.

Your employee was clean when they started the job, but how about now?
