Smoking cessation program
Smoking is an extremely unhealthy employee behavior that can result in considerable economic loss for your company.
Smoking shortens life by 12-15 years and leads to the loss of qualified employees. Smoking is one of the two main causes of premature mortality in Russia.
Due to smoking, the duration of absence from work due to illness increases. Smokers are sick 9% more often and spend more days in the hospital than non-smokers.[1]

Employees who smoke spend considerable time smoking. When they are absent from the workplace in order to smoke, overall productivity decreases.
According to the American Association for the fight against lung diseases, smokers experience more accidents at work than non-smokers due to a decrease in attention and reaction rate.
