This critical, solutions-based program for all levels of HR leadership is presented by Award-winning author and international SHRM/HR keynote speaker Andy Masters, MA, CSP. This shocking program exposes the nearly $1 Billion dollar fake “synthetic” urine industry which enables employees and candidates to successfully cheat employer drug tests–and it’s damaging impact on every organization during our tragic U.S. opioid crisis. Research proves the staggering time and cost impact from workplace drug usage on employee productivity, safety, workers comp claims, and violence in the workplace. Precedent has now been set for legal liability against the vast majority of U.S. organizations which have not effectively screened employees and candidates amid changing marijuana laws.
Most importantly, this program outlines the simple, yet critical action steps HR departments must implement to stop the cheating immediately–in order to hire qualified applicants, improve employee productivity, improve workplace safety, and lessen the dangerous legal liability for their organization. The impact of this program may not only save entire organizations from legal crises, but can also help prevent yet another drug-related workforce tragedy in our country.

This eye-opening, must-see program for all levels of HR leadership is based on the 5th book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire“, from award-winning author and international speaker Andy Masters. Leaders now face new pressures to produce more with less, which unfortunately leads many to fall into the “do-it-all-myself” trap. However, a “Control Freak” corporate culture is one of the most dangerous and damaging to any organization. Leaders who don’t effectively delegate certainly bring about stress, burnout, turnover, and rising health care costs–not to mention taking time and attention away from the most important projects and responsibilities. However, even deeper, a lack of leadership through empowering squelches employee development, negatively impacts succession planning, and even causes a direct “negative ROI” impact to each organization through an ineffective use of human resources. Enjoy this powerful keynote program which illustrates what organizations should do to develop & empower future leaders–and how to avoid the damaging impacts of organizations which don’t.
