How Are Smokers Affecting Your Business?
Smoking is a contentious issue and one that often crops up in the workplace. Some employees will argue that they have a right to smoke, while others will say that it has a negative effect on their health. So, what does the evidence say? How does employee smoking affect businesses?
There are a number of ways in which employee smoking can affect businesses. For starters, smokers take regular smoking breaks, which can cost the business time and money. In addition, smoking causes a number of health conditions which can lead to illness, time off, or at the least reduced productivity.
Smokers typically take two or three 10-minute smoking breaks per day. That may not seem like much, but it quickly adds up. If you have 10 employees who smoke and each takes two 10-minute breaks per day, that’s 40 minutes of lost productivity per day, or 200 minutes per week. That’s the equivalent of five hours! And that’s just for 10 employees. If you have 100 employees who smoke, that’s 50 hours of lost productivity per week. That’s a huge amount of time!
Smoking is linked to a number of serious health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, lung cancer and chronic bronchitis. These health conditions can lead to absenteeism from work, as well as reduced productivity when employees are at work (due to things like fatigue and difficulty breathing). In fact, studies have shown that smokers are more likely to take more sick days than nonsmokers.
Employee smoking can have a significant negative impact on businesses. From lost productivity due to smoking breaks to increased absenteeism due to health problems, there are a number of ways in which employee smoking can harm businesses. If you’re concerned about the effects of employee smoking on your business, then this workshop is for you.
One of the great regrets of my life is that I smoked. If I could say anything to anybody starting out in life, it would be, whatever you do, don’t smoke. I have had to recover from that and been lucky that I have been able to stop.
