Studies show that every employee who uses tobacco costs his or her employer an average of $3,391 a year in lost productivity and medical expenses. To help Utah businesses understand the impact tobacco use has on their bottom line, the Utah Tobacco Prevention Task Force is hosting its inaugural Business Summit.
Rich McKeown, co-founder and CEO of Leavitt Partners and Summit keynote, is an expert on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has seen how health care costs can drain profits. McKeown helps employers minimize costs by understanding new tobacco regulations under the ACA.
Also on the schedule is a panel discussion featuring Utah employers like UTA, Intermountain Healthcare, Smith’s Food and Drug, and Neerings Plumbing and Heating, Inc. Panelists will share their experience with implementing tobacco-free policies and providing cessation benefits for employees.
