Working together for a drug-free workforce.
Opioid-use disorder is affecting businesses of every kind — from small operations to large corporations — creating daily challenges for employers and touching the lives of employees and their families. More than ever, employers are challenged to find a ready, drug-free workforce, and to help existing employees who are dealing with drug-related issues of their own, or someone they care about. This crisis is too big to go it alone — it will take all of us, including the business community.
The Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce wants to help employers achieve a ready, drug-free workforce and assist with employees who are dealing with drug-related issues. We provide employers with an online course, a business toolkit and other resources they can use — free of charge — to help them prepare, prevent, and respond to this crisis.
Together, we can create a healthier, drug-free workforce.
