- A SmokeFree workplace can benefit your business by:
- Reducing the costs associated with sickness absence
- 34 million working days are lost in England & Wales per year due to smoking.
- Improving productivity
Supporting an employee who smokes to quit can save an organisation money due to shorter and less frequent breaks, and less sickness absence.
- Reducing absense
- Non-smokers are less likely to be absent from work, and are off work due to ill health less than smokers.
Exposure to secondhand smoke also has a significant impact on the health of employees and the performance of an organisation. A SmokeFree environment can also encourage smokers to quit.
