The drug store chain that famously announced it would rid its store shelves of tobacco products by Oct. 1 first made its own corporate campus tobacco-free.
CVS Caremark employees don’t have to kick the habit on their own, though. Since it went smoke-free in 2013, the company has offered smoking cessation classes as part of a wellness effort that also includes preventive screenings, flu shots, a weight-program, health coaching and health management for chronic and rare conditions.
The retailer also encourages workers to join walking teams and to choose the healthy food options in its staff cafeterias. Expecting employees have access to a program promoting pregnancy health.
“Wellness is as important for our colleagues as it is for our patients and customers,” says Lisa Bisaccia, chief HR officer.
