Are you a smoker? How many people smoke at your workplace? This video shows some thoughts about smoking in the workplace...
Here are some statistics COLLATED
in March this year about employees at work taking a “FAG
” – cigarette break
Two in five of those who take a cigarette break at work (40% of smokers) do so because they need to take a break from their work – not because they need a SMOKE,
researchers in the UK have just reported.
Four per cent of people who smoke at work also take a break to flirt with colleagues - another four per cent take the opportunity to talk to their boss.
in Britain show that getting people to quit smoking could have a HUGE
impact for businesses as well as people’s health. Apparently two thirds of smokers (64%) admitting to smoking at work reveals that a smoker who works full time spends an average ten hours a month outside and not working. There are an average four breaks a day to go out and have a fag!
About half of smokers questioned – go out for a cigarette break because they “want to get away from their work”.
Top reasons are:-
- Pressure getting to smokers and making them IRRITABLE – 30%
- GOSSIP with their colleagues – 14%
- FLIRT with co-workers – 4%
- Strategic opportunity to talk to their boss 4%
Would you give up smoking at work if your company asked you to?
