At work, we have a lounge for employees where they can relax and have coffee or eat something. It's quite large in size, but the company has hundreds of employees in that building (an airport) so there could be anything from 1 to 30 or 40 employees at the same time there.
The area is a non-smoking area, but smoking in prohibited places is tolerated in my society (sadly), and people do not follow such rules about smoking. At least it is better now, people do not smoke inside the offices unlike few years ago, so they kinda feel they are ok to smoke in this lounge! Now, I do not want to discuss how to FORCE employees not to smoke or how to ENFORCE the smoking law because this is complicated and it needs authorities (which does not really care about smoking, since it is accepted in the society) and that's not what I intend to do now. A smoking room is an idea but it can not be done due to many reasons. The nearest open place where they can smoke is a 1 minute walk; but still, they think it is far.
My idea is, I want to make people stop smoking in a creative way. There are a lot of complains from non smokers. Still, the smokers do not really feel anything, and they keep smoking. An idea was introduced by one of the employees, which is making a shame list in the facebook group (which has almost all employees as members in it). So we take photos of people who smoke there and then post it in the shame list in the group. It sounds okay, but I am afraid there could some consequences to it. Other idea was to simply punish employees by the company laws but again this is not creative and many managers are one of those who smoke!
So how can I make people stop smoking while at work in this lounge?
