Tobacco Cessation

Motivating Employees To Quit Smoking Results In Reduced Workplace Absenteeism & Higher Productivity

Minneapolis, MN, November 16th 2015 – Ceridian announces its free webinar: Tobacco Cessation: Boosting Health & Productivity at Work. Ceridian Wellness Program Specialist Sue Blankenhagen will discuss how organizations can motivate employees to improve their health and stop smoking by developing a tobacco cessation program or improving upon an existing program.

“Although the risks of tobacco use are widely known, its use is still prevalent and is the largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States,” says Sue Blankenhagen, Ceridian LifeWorks Wellness Program Specialist. “While smoking cessation programs are not new, they have expanded beyond addressing the health care costs of tobacco use to focusing on its impact on productivity. Motivating employees to quit smoking will give them the energy to remain active and engaged both at work and at home.”

Sue will draw from her 25 years of health and wellness experience to offer attendees unique insight into:

  • The ripple effect of tobacco use, including the impact on employee health, productivity and health care costs
  • Top incentives and methods for motivating employees to quit
  • Elements of successful tobacco health coaching programs and tactics for integrating tobacco cessation efforts with Employee Assistant Programs (EAPs)
  • How to measure the success of tobacco cessation efforts

Register today and join us on November 19th from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET to uncover new ways to encourage employee health and wellness and boost your organization’s bottom line by motivating tobacco-using employees to quit for good.
