The number of positive drug tests by U.S. employees is on the rise. Making matters worse, poor attendance, disrespect for authority and a general absence of work ethic in the local workforce.
Attendance, Appearance, Attitude, Ambition, Acceptance, Accountability, and Appreciation.
What would it mean to your workplace if all of your employees exhibited these characteristics? Furthermore, what if they were also committed to being Drug-Free?
The Wayne County Schools Career Center introduced the Bring Your A Game to Work curriculum and started a Drug Free Clubs of America chapter at the high school level in 2014. These programs are now replicated in the adult education program and are making a positive difference on the next generation of workers in Wayne County.
