Human Resources and Facilities Managers are the custodians of two of the most important drivers of business performance. People and Places. For an organisation to operate most effectively, it’s important that both functions work in partnership.
By committing to building wellness, HR professionals are empowered to play a greater role in the physical workspace design and operations. They have more influence on culture and change management decisions and to align the brand with the employee experience.
By providing a ‘Well’ building, within which good Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is essential, employers can improve the way staff behave within it. Whilst providing them with health benefits that come with an enhanced physical environment.
Corporate wellbeing strategies that deliver a healthier and happier workplace environment are becoming increasingly viewed as an integral part of the value proposition to employees.

The millennial generation is taking this one step further. They actively choose a better quality of life at work. Including career opportunity, paid time off, forward-thinking culture – over a higher salary.
The demand for well buildings is on the increase.

IAQ is at the heart of it.
