On average, for every person who smokes, it costs employers $4,256 annually in lost productivity, employee absence, and facility costs to maintain smoking areas.
Most people who smoke would like to quit.
The workplace is a great place to reach those that would like to quit.
Employers can support employees by:
- offering benefit plans that provide coverage for cessation medications
- offering tobacco cessation services
- referring to services such as those available through AlbertaQuits.
Going without tobacco is hard. We can help.
