Book 4: Wellness: The Future of Building Design, Construction and Operations

 A 2017 report by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) noted that nearly half of employers said health and productivity programs were an essential component of their company strategy, while 91% of employers said they offered health and wellness programs for reasons beyond medical cost savings.

The physical workplace was also one of the top three factors affecting job performance and satisfaction, according to the IWBI report, which cited a study in which 90% of employees surveyed said their attitude toward work is negatively affected by the quality of their work environment.

This new eHandbook gathers tips and strategies from leading design professionals and building owners on how to make sure your building is fostering wellness.

In this eHandbook, we’ve compiled a number of up-to-date guidelines and resources from some of the most trusted sources to help get educational facilities ready for learning.
