SKODA AUTO to become a non-smoking company
ŠKODA AUTO made the decision to build a smoke-free working environment in close cooperation with its social partner, the KOVO Trade Union, and the Company is thus positioning itself as a responsible and health-conscious employer.
ŠKODA AUTO has long been supporting employees who decide to quit smoking by providing various services under its programme called “Lungs Matter”, including nicotine substitution therapies and expert counselling.
As one of the largest employers in the Czech Republic, the car manufacturer supports the general transition to a smoke-free society while giving the top priority to protecting the health of its employees. Smoking is already banned in many public places, such as restaurants, bus stops, as well as sports, cultural and entertainment centres, and ŠKODA AUTO’s decision to adopt a smoking ban is therefore a logical step towards maximum protection of employees’ health.
