About Preferred Alliance

More and more American employers are starting to implement employee drug testing policies and programs and this includes retail employers. While there is no industry standard when it comes to drug testing for retail employees, it is becoming more common. This is because employers across multiple industries, not just those mandated by law, have started to understand the benefits of having an employee drug testing policy in place.

These employers aren’t doing it by themselves though, they are turning to the experts for help. At Preferred Alliance, we specialize in helping companies set up and maintain their employee drug testing programs. We do the hard part so that you don’t have to. After all, we know that most employers are busy running their own businesses and don’t have the time or the equipment necessary to maintain a drug testing program. But at Preferred Alliance, we do, and we’re here to help you.

Why You Should Have a Drug-Testing Policy In Place

You might be asking why a retail organization would want or need to have a drug testing policy in place and the answer is the same as any other field because it’s good for business. Having a drug testing policy in place can help create a safer, more efficient work environment and reduce the chance of a workplace safety incident. It can also encourage a higher quality of employee, which can improve production and morale.

Retail jobs are associated with high turnover rates, but implementing a company drug testing policy can actually reduce employee turnover. This is because it will discourage employees who know that they cannot pass a pre-employment drug test, many of whom are likely to be unreliable or seeking temporary employment. Random drug testing will also keep employees accountable and again discourage those who do not believe they can pass a drug test. This could leave to employees who are more likely to stay longer and less likely to call in sick, which improves morale and production.
