Working together for a drug-free workforce.
Opioid-use disorder is affecting businesses of every kind — from small operations to large corporations — creating daily challenges for employers and touching the lives of employees and their families. More than ever, employers are challenged to find a ready, drug-free workforce, and to help existing employees who are dealing with drug-related issues of their own, or someone they care about. This crisis is too big to go it alone — it will take all of us, including the business community.
That’s where our coalition, Together Arkansas, comes in. The Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce has joined forces with Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and AFMC to provide employers with a toolkit of resources they can use — free of charge — to help them prepare, prevent, and respond to this crisis.
Together, we can create a healthier, drug-free workforce.
