It is important to respect the privacy of employees’ personal time, but it can sometimes affect their work performance. Studies have shown that substance-abusing employees’ function at about two-thirds of their capability and are three times more like to be late for work.
By finding a way to empower them to be the best version of themselves will benefit both parties involved.
Encouraging a healthy company culture has wide-reaching ripple effects that benefit everyone – consider including the following as you create and implement your substance abuse policy:
- The definition of substance abuse
- The purpose, intention and/or objectives of the policy
- Who is included in the programme?
- Circumstances for drug or alcohol testing
- How to maintain confidentiality when dealing with the issue
- Resources to educate employees on substance abuse
- Training and reporting systems for identifying signs of substance abuse
- Plans for assistance or disciplinary actions for violations
Even though it’s uncomfortable to address suspected substance-related abuse issues, it will benefit and protect all parties involved.
