Improved Wellbeing, Cognitive Function, and Productivity

Expectations of buildings and places in terms of health and wellness are higher than they have ever been. The heightened expectations were already happening before COVID. The largest working generation are Millennials, and with the exception of family, Millennials value health the most.

Studies have shown a link between green-certified and healthier buildings and improved wellbeing, cognitive function, and productivity. 

Showcase your initiatives and let employees and customers know what you are doing to help them. Create a ‘sense of place’ that supports health and contributes to belonging and productivity. Build trust and understand how data impacts your people. The WELL Building Standard® is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through the air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.  WELL marks your commitment to people-first places

The General Services Administration (GSA) is tasked with putting the nation’s public servants into efficient, healthy buildings and buying goods and services that provide maximum value to the taxpayer. With each high-performance building, waste and utility costs drop, and the environment benefits. Helping the Federal Government make sustainable decisions and achieve high performance is GSA’s mission, but they built the GSA Sustainable Facilities Tool (SFTool) to inspire and prepare everyone to take action.

Healthier companies outperform their peers. A recent study that tracked the performance of health and safety found that portfolios with high scores on the Corporate Health Achievement Awards appreciated 99% more than the S&P 500 Index.

In summary, healthy buildings are good for the bottom line.  According to a recent study from the MIT Real Estate Innovation Lab, effective rents at healthy buildings get between 4.4 percent and 7.7 percent more rent per square foot than their nearby peers
