You don’t have to be a pilot or pro athlete to fear drug testing from your employer. Tens of millions of Americans are potentially subject to workplace drug testing each year. And naturally that has some workers more worried than others.
An employee screening firm named JDP recently analyzed 12 months of Google search trends data related to 150 of America’s biggest employers and best-known brands to find out whose employees are most concerned about workplace drug tests. Their analysis represents the companies where both current and prospective employees are most concerned about drug tests in the workplace. They also broke down the analysis even further to see the top companies in eight different categories including (fast food, superstore shopping, grocery, tech, discount shopping, apparel, shipping and hardware).
For the analysis they looked at the search term “does <company> drug test” over the top 150 companies in America. They looked a the search volume over 12 months for each company. The full analysis can be seen in the graphics below.
