Workplace Design for Well-being

Today, there is an emerging opportunity to use workplace design to promote a holistic state of well-being for people at work. When organizations provide work environments that support user control, natural elements and daylight, and changing postures, they address the physical and psychological health of people—enhancing engagement, creativity, innovation, and retention. Good workplace design fosters well-being—which leads to success for organizations.

A great read from one of the most respected workplace strategy researchers. It's very much in line with the results of our Workplace Wellness Calculator which shows, the CBRE WELL certification cost only $51 per employee over LEED Gold (over 15 year amortization period).


What that means, among other things, is that if:


  • .9 employees stop being obese or don't become obese, OR
  • 1.2 employees stop being chronically stressed, OR if
  • .9 employees stop smoking, OR
  • .5 employees stop being depressed, OR
  • if employees increase productivity by .25 minutes per day, OR if
  • .1 fewer people leave the company for health reasons


the WELL investment has paid for itself.

It seems hard to believe, but I'd be happy to share the simple math with anyone who asks.

Want more engaged employees? Remember this word: Respect.

When it comes to garnering commitment and engagement from employees, there is one thing that leaders need to demonstrate: Respect. That’s what we saw in a study of nearly 20,000 employees around the world(conducted with HBR and Tony Schwartz).

The study showed that respect is linked to employee engagement, health, well-being, safety, job satisfaction, customer satisfaction and even task performance.
