RECOVERY FRIENDLY EMPLOYER CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION: Employers across the United States lose over $100 billion a year due to employee drug and alcohol issues according to The National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information. People who struggle with substance use are more likely to call out or miss work, have shorter employment tenures, and file more worker’s comp claims, while people with criminal records struggle to find employment - even if they are in recovery. If you are an Employer experiencing lost revenue, decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, or struggling to hire workers due to alcohol or drug issues, this is for you. We outline how to shift your workplace culture from zero tolerance to actively supporting people with substance use issues, and how to receive Governor Sununu's Recovery Friendly Workplace Designation.
