Failed Drug Tests Limit Employers’ Options

Fond du Lac Reporter (04/13/12)

Wisconsin companies are eager to hire skilled employees, but too many candidates are failing drug tests. The drug test failure rate at some companies is as high as 50%.

Mark Immekus, chief sales officer of QPS Employment Group, says manufacturers are seeking applicants who are less likely to pose safety risks on the job due to substance-related impairments. “We don’t see (testing) going away because manufacturers are under pressure, from a safety standpoint,” he says. He also notes that, from QPS’ point of view, a dearth of applicants with technical skills poses a greater challenge for companies than failed drug tests.
