Smoking Cessation Resources and Programs for Employees
Quitting smoking is very hard to do. Yet if you smoke, you know that quitting is the best thing you can do for your health. According to the State of Connecticut’s “Kick Ash” Campaign,
- Smoking takes an average of 14 years off your life;
- 1 of every 5 deaths in America is caused by smoking;
- Smoking-related illness costs Americans more than $300 billion per year
There are many available resources for those employees and students that would like to take the next step and quit smoking. Information regarding available resources is available on the Department of Human Resources website. Information regarding the University’s Smoking Policy as well as guidelines for supervisors and employees and frequently asked questions is also available on this website.
We ask that managers who supervise employees with limited computer access please post this announcement in a common area. For more information contact the Department of Human Resources at 860.486-3034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
