IWBI | Workplace Wellness

A WELL Certified™ project has the potential to add measurable value to the health, well-being and happiness of people in the buildings. It can also generate increased savings and productivity. Personnel costs significantly outweigh the costs for design and construction and operations and maintenance, with employers spending 90 percent of their annual operating costs on people. This means that even a small impact on productivity, engagement and satisfaction in the workplace can have huge returns on investment. By channeling resources toward reducing the biggest line item in the 30-year costs of a building—the personnel—the business case for WELL features a meaningful return on investment.
