Workplaces benefit from supporting their employees to stop smoking.  
Dr Linda Bauld from the University of Bath and UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies said:

“Research has shown that offering stop smoking support in the workplace is an effective way to help smokers to quit. What works best is a combination of support from a trained advisor, either in groups or one to one, and access to stop smoking medication. This is exactly what NHS Stop Smoking Services can offer, and employers have an important role to play in helping their staff succeed at stopping smoking."
