Hiring Season is Here!

Happy February! We are finally gaining some daylight minutes on our way to Spring. That means we’ll be heading into construction and tourism season! This is the time of year employers in various industries are looking for a reliable and stable workforce to service their needs in the coming months.

One way TSS can help with this process is by assisting you with having the right policies in place before your hiring begins. Does your company have an employee handbook? Do you have a written drug and alcohol screening policy? How are employees notified and trained about that policy? That’s where we come in. We can assist in developing a reasonable policy for your company, that meets your needs and manages the expense. Studies show that for every dollar you invest in a drug screening program, you will save $7. The savings come from reducing accidents and near misses, lost productivity, absenteeism or presenteeism, and more.

Every employer wants to keep their people safe from harm. Introducing a drug screening program with integrity, reliability and enforcement measures helps bring safety alive in your company. People will often tell us that they cannot afford a program. But really, you can’t afford to not have one. According to the National Safety Council, work injuries cost businesses an estimated $171 BILLION in 2019! The average medically consulted injury was $42,000. While that is a lot of money for the employer to spend, more importantly, the impact on the injured employee can be life-altering or deadly. We owe it to our workforce to be diligent in every manner possible to keep them safe and free of harm.

Let me know if we can help you come up with a plan that meets your needs. I guarantee that we can achieve affordable means to help promote safety in your workplace.
