Over the last several months, organizations around the world have had to rethink how they approach everyday tasks, including screening and hiring their workforce. At the same time, online sales of marijuana have increased 142 percent since the initial call to shelter in place. That means employees who are or have been working remotely may be operating with impaired judgment.

During the HR Technology Conference & Exposition, Ranjeev Teelock, Chief Product Officer for First Advantage, will address these concerns in a session titled, “Whenever, Wherever: NEW Virtual Drug Testing.” Teelock will explain how the new, COVID-adjusted world led to innovation in virtual drug testing, helping to boost employer confidence and lower organizational risk. Session attendees will hear about the latest technologies that enable testing “at home” and learn how their organizations can bring business back online safely.

First Advantage will also be exhibiting at the HR Technology Conference and encourages those interested in learning more about the latest virtual screening solutions to schedule time with company representatives through the event platform.
