The environments in which we work and play impact our health and well-being in a multitude of ways. Emily Winer of the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) explains how the pioneering WELL standard supports people and communities to thrive.

Complimentary to the materials-focused LEED certification, WELL is a holistic framework that sets a new global benchmark for performance in ten areas: air, light, sound, water, movement, physical materials that make up a building, thermal comfort, nourishment, community and mind.

It turns out that incorporating circadian lighting, strategies to encourage exercise, stress management programs, modulating acoustics, air quality, and more is not only good for health but good for the bottom line. Studies show that WELL workplaces are healthier, happier and more collaborative with a reduction in absenteeism and sick days, and even result in better sleep.

Join us to learn how WELL is transforming business and corporate culture from the inside out and from the top down to create environments that enhance physical, social and emotional well-being.
