7 Ways Bigfoot and Smokers at Work Are Alike + 1 Key Difference

When it comes to mythological creatures, Bigfoot may not get as much attention as unicorns and dragons, but there’s one enormous reason you should learn about him.

You don’t actually employ Bigfoot, but considering how much he has in common with tobacco users in your organization, it’s a bit scary. Need some proof? Read on:


7 ways Bigfoot and smokers at work are alike include both are elusive, most people don't believe either exist, both are intimidating, they leave large footprints, both feel misunderstood, both have family connections, and neither seem about to become extinct.

Same But Different

Yes, these 2 things have a lot in common, but 1 key difference is tobacco use in the workplace is not a myth; it’s a very real monster eroding your employee health right now.

So, commit to address employee tobacco use now. Don’t let it be a big, hairy issue you avoid talking about at work (or one that’s keeping you up at night).
