NEW YORK, January 12, 2022 /3BL Media/ - The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is pleased to announce new organizations that have joined its membership program, an expanding program that offers commercial benefits, as well as brand visibility and networking opportunities. The steady growth of the program signifies the continued prioritization of health and well-being of people across buildings, communities and organizations. The most recent additions to the network include organizations in the architecture, financial, real estate and technology sectors.
“The IWBI membership community’s continued growth complements the exponential adoption of WELL around the world,” said Rachel Hodgdon, President and CEO of IWBI. “As we embark on a new year with new opportunities and challenges, we’re excited and humbled to work alongside these global leaders to advance this movement for people-first places toward a healthy future for everyone, everywhere.”
The program has continued to grow by nearly 10 percent over the past quarter, now totaling over 180 global members, with existing members continuing to renew their memberships.

The continued growth of the IWBI membership program accompanies the rapid uptake of the WELL Building Standard (WELL), offerings including WELL Certification, the WELL Health-Safety Rating and WELL Portfolio programs, which now stand at over 3.3 billion square feet of projects across nearly 110 countries. Much of WELL’s success is driven by a global network of WELL Accredited Professionals (WELL APs) and exam registrants, a community now totaling over 20,000 people.
There are two tiers of membership and a third designation for companies already enrolled in the WELL programs at portfolio scale. This allows companies to select the best fit for their organizational goals. Member benefits include discounts on the WELL Certification process and WELL AP credentialing program, specialized opportunities to publicize accomplishments and more touchpoints with IWBI leadership and across the broader community through members-only year-round events and enhanced digital engagement. The program creates opportunities for WELL advocates and champions to stay connected, share best practices, explore new shared initiatives and receive greater recognition for these efforts.
