J&J Philippines Extends Smoking Cessation Support to Employees During Community Quarantine
As Filipinos continue to adjust to the changing situations under community quarantine, Johnson & Johnson (Philippines), Inc. (“J&J Philippines”) is extending support to their employees who wish to quit smoking for good, as part of their Operation Quit global campaign.
The program is the latest of many wellness programs made available by the company to ensure the health and wellbeing of their employees.
Over a 12-week period, interested participants will be supplied with packs of Nicotine Polacrilex (Nicorette) 2mg Medicated Chewing Gum, J&J’s Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) product, along with a Quitting Booklet and motivational materials to assist them in their quitting journey.
Nicotine Polacrilex (Nicorette) comes in a 2mg medicated chewing gum format and is designed to help willing smokers manage their cravings and withdrawal symptoms while on the road to quitting smoking for good.
The initiative was extended to all 1,500 employees of J&J Philippines as well as their friends and families via a sign up form on the Nicorette Philippines website.
“As a company, we are committed to the health and well-being of our employees, especially during these difficult and uncertain times,” J&J Philippines Director for Human Resources and Corporate Contributions Sean Zantua said.
He added, “For us, this program aims to inspire and motivate those within our network to continue on in their quitting journey, and to assure them that they are supported.”
J&J Philippines Managing Director Raghu Krishnan shared, “Our expertise in smoking cessation globally has shown us that quitting smoking is different for each person. With this program, we wanted to ensure that our employees and their families have the assistance they need in order to quit smoking more effectively.”
Nicotine Polacrilex (Nicorette) is a product under J&J Philippines’ consumer health portfolio and will be made available for purchase to Filipino consumers in select retail stores by September 2020.
