NEW YORK, March 15, 2023 /3BL Media/ - The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), the global authority for driving market transformation toward healthy buildings, organizations and communities, has today announced the winners of the 2022 IWBI Awards. The program celebrates the positive impact and leadership of organizations and individuals who have leveraged WELL to make extraordinary strides in health, well-being and equity.

  • The WELL at scale awards, launched this year, are presented to organizations for their commitment to prioritizing health and well-being across their organization or real estate portfolio through the WELL at scale program.
  • The WELL community awards elevate passionate advocates and leaders– WELL Faculty and WELL APs (Accredited Professionals) – within the WELL community across a wide range of categories.

“The WELL movement has experienced tremendous growth over the past year, as organizations and individuals alike have championed strategies that contribute to health, well-being and people-first places everywhere,” said IWBI Chief Product Officer Jessica Cooper. “Congratulations to all award recipients for their exceptional leadership, engagement and advocacy, which has helped to influence this growth.”

These leaders will also be recognized at the WELL Summit, to be held in Washington, D.C., September 25-26, 2023.

WELL at scale enables organizations to measure and improve organizational health performance and its impact across all locations. Many WELL at scale awards are determined using an organization’s WELL Score, a number out of 100 that reflects the WELL strategies earned across all of an enterprise’s locations, weighted by the number of people impacted by those achievements, as well as achievement by WELL concept area. Over time, this score can be contextualized by industry, region, fund and location use-types, and will provide a ranking in one of these areas. With this data, organizations can measure their impact on people, while also comparing their progress internally and against industry peers.

WELL Faculty and WELL APs—a community of nearly 12,000 people in more than 100 countries whose professional credential denotes expertise in WELL—have worked hand-in- hand with organizations pursuing IWBI’s programs including its flagship WELL Building Standard, the WELL ratings and WELL at scale, now collectively spanning nearly 4.6 billion square feet across 125 countries. The 2022 award winners have influenced WELL’s progress by demonstrating exceptional leadership through action, feedback and proactive support.
