No Pain, No Gain

A CEO I knew years ago decided to create a drug free workplace in his chain of pharmacies. This CEO implemented a zero tolerance policy and began drug testing on all employees.
He assumed he would lose some staff, but was not prepared for what actually happened. Almost half of his pharmacists failed the drug test and were terminated.
Although I would’ve handled the implementation differently, this CEOs action resulted in a healthier business over time. It also forced several terminated employees to face their addiction and begin the healing process.
Hebrews 12:11 teaches, “No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”
Discipline can be painful, but healthier, long term.
