Background Check With Social Security Number

Drug Abuse Mars Organizational Culture

Background verification is the process of knowing and validating the information shared by the prospective employees and also those on board. Background checks on information pertaining to education, past employment, address, criminal background and reference checks are part of a standard background check package available in the industry. These checks are conducted for employees in order to know and ensure that the organization is involved in best hiring practices. Employee background check incorporates the above checks mentioned but with the the findings of a survey conducted by the Ministry of Social Welfare and United Nations International Drug Control Program reveals that at 3.4%, the consumption of opiates in the region (Chandigarh- Punjab) is three times the national average. This is indeed a revelation worth paying attention to in context of the organizations and the employees as a part of it.

Substance abuse indulgence has become a very common phenomenon and its existence has also spread across organizations. Employees who are involved in illegal drug abuse can create a lot of adverse and negative impact at the workplace. Employees under the influence of harmful and illegal drugs like cocaine, heroine tend to get dependent on it. This hampers the work productivity of the particular employee. Moreover, other employees could also start developing an inclination towards the intake of harmful drugs. Chances are pretty much high of employees under the influence of alcohol or drugs to show an aggressive behavior. Organizations make the employees work in teams, hence if any employee indulges in the practice of drug abuse the whole functioning of the team is at stake. Besides this the employee in need of drugs can become prone to get involved in accounts or finance manipulation as more need for money comes into play. This results in affecting the whole workplace. Organizations strive to provide the employees with a healthy and clean work environment. To ensure the hiring of employees with a clean background in context of substance abuse testing organizations need to adopt a proactive approach.

Alongside the standard process of background check involving verification pertaining to education, past employment, address, criminal background; drug test must become an added check. This will ensure organizations do not end up hiring employees involved in drug abuse. A prior drug test on an employee helps in reduction of the hiring of an employee with a background of substance abuse. Background verification companies have started to realize the importance and need of drug test. Therefore in recent times alongside a standard background check process they also provide with substance abuse testing as a service. Organizations have the option available to take the help of background verification companies to mitigate the risk of hiring an employee involved in drug abuse.
