Improving the quality of life for our employees with the help of LFHS

— Jamie Yocum- Pres., GF Bowman

“As an employer we are always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for our employees. This year we developed a tobacco cessation wellness plan for the employees.  Through discussion with LFHS, it was brought to my attention that they offer a free smoking cessation class several times a year at their office. They offered to come to our office and do an onsite class.  Four of our employees decided to take advantage of the opportunity. LFHS allowed us to choose the day and time that was convenient for the 4 participants. A facilitator visited our office each week for one hour over the participants lunch period. The participants were encouraged and taught different strategies for coping with quitting smoking. They were each provided with workbooks and Nicotine Replacement Therapy at no cost. They were also provided with coupons for the patch for after the course was over. Three of the 4 participants quit smoking and are still non-smokers. We are thrilled with the results and hope the word spreads through the rest of the company and that we will be able to hold another session to help terminate tobacco use.”
