In the ongoing battle against substance use disorder (SUD), the role of employers in creating safe and recovery-friendly workplaces cannot be overstated. Andrea Owens, the founder of HourGlass® Testing Solutions, is a shining example of a leader who not only recognizes this responsibility but actively works towards it. Through her unwavering commitment to fostering a supportive environment for employees in recovery, Andrea is making a meaningful difference in the lives of her team members and setting a powerful example for other businesses to follow.

Andrea’s journey towards championing recovery-friendly workplaces began with a deep understanding of the challenges faced by individuals struggling with SUD. Recognizing the need for comprehensive drug testing solutions that prioritize accuracy, reliability, and compassion, she founded HourGlass Testing Solutions with a mission to provide employers with the tools they need to create safer and healthier workplaces.

However, Andrea’s commitment to supporting recovery extends far beyond the services her company provides. As a member of the Michigan Recovery Friendly Taskforce, Andrea plays an active role in shaping policies and initiatives aimed at promoting recovery-friendly practices in workplaces across the community. Through her involvement in the taskforce, she advocates for greater awareness, education, and support for individuals in recovery, as well as the implementation of policies that prioritize compassion, understanding, and inclusivity.

One of the key ways Andrea demonstrates her commitment to creating a safe and recovery-friendly workplace is through her company’s policies and practices. HourGlass® Testing Solutions prioritizes the well-being and dignity of all employees, offering support and resources for those in recovery and fostering a culture of acceptance and understanding. From flexible work schedules to access to employee assistance programs (EAPs) and mental health resources, Andrea ensures that her team members have the support they need to succeed both personally and professionally.

Furthermore, Andrea leads by example, cultivating a workplace culture where open communication, empathy, and respect are valued above all else. By fostering an environment of trust and support, she creates a space where employees feel comfortable seeking help and support if they are struggling with substance use issues. Through her leadership, Andrea demonstrates that creating a recovery-friendly workplace is not just the right thing to do – it’s also good for business, leading to greater employee satisfaction, retention, and productivity.

Andrea Owens’ dedication to creating a safe and recovery-friendly workplace serves as an inspiration to us all. Her leadership, compassion, and commitment to supporting recovery not only benefit his employees but also contribute to building stronger, healthier communities.
