Kentucky’s business community has become actually aware in recent years that the state’s addiction epidemic is more than a public health issue. It has become a serious workforce issue, and employers are feeling its impact firsthand. As businesses struggle to find and retain workers, the opioid crisis is making the challenges even greater for HR leaders.
Join this session to better understand how Substance Use Disorder (SUD) could be impacting your workforce, and compare your current policies and practices to today’s emerging opportunities in the areas of workplace hiring, treatment, recovery and prevention.
