Tobacco Use and Secondhand Smoke Exposure: Incentives and Competitions to Increase Smoking Cessation Among Workers – When Combined With Additional Interventions

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends worksite-based incentives and competitions when combined with additional interventions to reduce tobacco use among workers. These interventions offer rewards to individual workers and to teams as a motivation to participate in a cessation program or effort. Rewards can be provided for participation, for success in achieving a specified behavior change, or for both. Types of rewards may include guaranteed financial payments, lottery chances for monetary or other prizes, and return of self-imposed payroll withholdings.
