Background checks and drug tests lead to more opportunities

February 17, 2021


Why buyers seek technicians with screenings

Did you know? Platform data indicates that technicians with a background check and drug test get 2x more work orders and make 2x more money on Field Nation. Why? There are a few reasons.

First off, it shows you’re serious about your business. It’s one more checkmark in the credibility column for companies who are evaluating whether or not you’re qualified to represent their brand. Additionally, some end-client locations with heightened security requirements — like schools, government buildings, and banks — require that all onsite technicians are background checked and drug tested. Most often, we see background checks and drug tests requested by clients who post large volumes of work on Field Nation to serve large, enterprise end-clients.

Free annual background check and drug test with Pro

With Field Nation Pro, you get one free background check and drug test (a $75+ value) when you’ve completed five work orders – ensuring you’re always up to date and considered for more jobs. (Note: the five work orders must be completed in the 12 months prior to upgrading to Pro, or once you join Pro.) Not only that, but you’re eligible for a new background check and drug test annually when you’re enrolled in Pro and have completed five work orders in the past 12 months. 

Technicians who have upgraded to Pro said they appreciate having the screenings included. They know how important screenings are to buyers and end customers, but it can be hard to make time (or remember to make time) to get them done. Now, it’s one less thing to worry about.
