Engaging Employers in Tobacco Control

Workplace tobacco control efforts – including tobacco free policies and tobacco use treatment support – not only improve employee health, but also are highly cost-effective. Tobacco use has both direct and indirect costs. Smoking-related illnesses lead to substantial health care costs and tobacco use decreases employee productivity. Individuals who quit using tobacco experience significant health benefits and the organizations that they work for yield positive returns.
