Tobacco Cessation

Create a tobacco-free workplace

Tobacco isn’t just bad for your employees’ health — it can also affect the health of your business. Creating a tobacco-free campus policy is a proven way to invest in the health of your employees and protect your bottom line. With the right resources, you can help employees kick the tobacco habit and embrace a healthy lifestyle.


One employee who smokes can cost you $5,816 a year.

This includes added medical costs, absenteeism, lost productivity, and other expenses.
