    Pre-placement services can help determine if employees are physically capable of performing the functions of a job. An effective physical exam can result in fewer injuries, lower costs and employees who are better-matched to their positions. Pre-placement services provided by Sanford OccMed can help ensure alignment between worker’s abilities and job requirements.

    A CareerBuilder survey lists the most common ways employers say a wrong hire affected their business in the last year:
    • 36% Less productivity
    • 33% Compromised quality of work
    • 31% Negative employee morale
    • 30% Lost time to recruit and train another worker
    • 30% Cost to recruit and train another worker

    This simple screening process reduces the risk of work-related injury and turnover. The cost of a wrong hire is significant and can bring down a team, manager or entire organization.
