Employee Habit vs. Addiction: Knowing When and How to Intervene
The Business Case to Support Addiction in the Workplace
A third of former smokers relapsed as a result of the pandemic.
That’s alarming for the employees themselves, but also for your healthcare costs.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your employees’ habits (or even addictions) during the pandemic.
This free webinar will help you better understand your company’s role in employee health habits, including what you can do, what you should do, and when.
You’ll get answers to questions like:
- What’s the business reason for being involved with employee addiction?
- Where should HR teams even start? How do you actually support employees with addictions?
- What’s the difference between a bad habit and a full-blown addiction?
And we’ll also cover:
- The surprising connection between chronic diseases and addiction (and it’s not what you may think),
- A clinically proven 3-step process to put in your employee toolkit,
- Why you can’t provide support for burnout or mental health concerns without also talking about addictions and habits,
- Ways to remove the stigma about addiction in the workplace,
- How to reduce chronic diseases amongst your employees (in turn reducing your healthcare costs),
- And much more.
Register today to better support your employees struggling with addictions and chronic diseases stemming from poor habits.
