For those associates who choose to stop or minimize their smoking habits, Safeware strives to provide a supportive and inclusive environment.
Dublin, Ohio (PRWEB) November 14, 2016
Safeware, a leading provider of product protection and extended warranty solutions, has expanded its Corporate Wellness Program to include support and incentives for individuals who successfully stop smoking before October 31, 2017 and the colleagues who support them. As of November 2016, approximately 11% of Safeware’s workforce identify themselves as a regular smoker.
As the company grows and aims to become smoke-free, Safeware’s Health and Wellness Committee is rewarding those who stop smoking with a paid day off to be used in 2018. In addition, cessation “buddies” will be awarded points toward their annual corporate wellness tally, used to earn incentives such as jeans weeks, fun passes to family-friendly activities, or paid days off.
The cessation “buddies” will be responsible for providing support to their assigned co-worker and keeping them accountable throughout the cessation process. This support system, and added incentive, will hopefully encourage a few, if not all, associates to stop smoking in the coming year.
“Safeware is dedicated to supporting the health and well-being of our associates,” says Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “For those associates who choose to stop or minimize their smoking habits, Safeware strives to provide a supportive and inclusive environment.”
Safeware’s health insurance package also offers cessation support free of charge. This support includes nicotine patches and gum, telephone counseling, and motivational resources such as the promise of lower insurance rates and the option to complete a “Quitter for Life” contract.
Having pioneered the technology insurance industry in 1982, Safeware is now one of the most recognized names in product protection. Safeware’s innovative approach to insurance and extended warranty solutions has propelled the company into multiple industries including education, corporate technology, fitness, furniture and appliances. By allowing partners to customize coverage based on their unique needs, Safeware provides best-in-class programs allowing customers to own their products with confidence.
