Workplace wellness has gained a lot of traction with the introduction of the WELL Building Standard in 2015. It’s the health and wellness equivalent to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), which was introduced in 2000, and has become a basis for “green design” throughout the country. Like LEED, the WELL Building Standard focuses on the built environment, but WELL specifically deals with the impact of the built environment on the occupants. This is getting a lot of attention for several reasons:
a.90% of a company’s costs are in their employees
b.Attraction of innovative talent is highly competitive
c.Retention of existing talent is more difficult today than ever before
d.A healthier workplace has a direct impact on the bottom line (insurance premiums, presentee-ism, and absentee-ism)
This presentation is beneficial for all interested parties: building owners, real estate brokers and agents, property managers, designers, construction managers, HR professionals, CEOs, CFOs, facility managers, and others. The impact of the WELL Building Standard on the future of the workplace is already evident and becoming more prevalent.
