Information for Corporations

  • Are you looking for means to boost your company productivity while keeping your employees healthy and happy?
  • Are you concerned about finding better and more effective ways to serve your employees' needs and assure optimal health in this era of ever-increasing health care costs?
  • Would you like to offer your employees self-administered smoking cessation and weight loss tools that involve no participation from your end?

If you've answered yes to the above questions, then you've come to the right place. Our smoking cessation product - QuitKey , weight loss Product - DietMate and sleep aid - SleepKey can help your employees maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Healthcare costs are continuing to soar. Recent statistics show that cigarette smoking has a significant impact on rising health care costs and the overall health of your employees. Although the extra costs of employing smokers may be obvious, economists' estimates range from at least $600 up to $4600 per year for each smoker. In addition, at any one time, 65% of the adult population in the United States is on some type of diet, and another 15% should consider starting one. A great majority will lose weight only to regain it a few months later. Now you can provide your employees with a safe, effective and a scientifically proven way to end their smoking habit, lose weight and stay healthy.
