As a small business owner, finding ways to reduce costs is high priority. For every employee who smokes, the employer is spending $5,800 more in extra health insurance costs and lost productivity. It’s in the best interest of your bottom line to help employees to quit using tobacco. One way is to include tobacco cessation treatment options in your benefits package, such as covering doctor visits and prescriptions to help employees kick the habit. Another is to adopt a 100% tobacco free worksite that covers including e-cigarettes.
