I call BS on this study. How the heck can one calculate 6,000 dollars more anyway. I grab recklessly grab a smoke every so often and I’ve never cost an employer any more money in twenty years. Unless smokers are taking breaks they shouldn’t be for 30 minutes to an hour a day to smoke when they should be productive I don’t get it. However, people slack off in all kinds of ways.

if they’re gonna bemoan a smoke break or two each day for smokers, hows about bathroom breaks? water cooler brakes? or hows about surfing the web brakes?

if ya really don’t wanna have to carp about 2 fifteen minute breaks, let the smoker smoke at his desk.

that’s half the expense right there. bogus, cherry picking of data.

and what if ya don’t smoke at work?

and did you see the diff in pensions? no way those figures are credible.

It sounds like you are very respectful of your employer however many others are not. Beside there standard break smokers take additional breaks for smoking.
