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.
