Office buildings are key to worker’s health, wellbeing and productivity
Staffing costs account for up to 90% of business budgets, and increasingly more business leaders are looking for office environments that contribute to healthier, more efficient staff. Understanding the link between offices’ design and the health, wellbeing, and productivity of its occupants is critical in order for organizations to be able to respond more readily to clients’ and employees’ interests.
The World Green Building Council and the UK Green Building Council’s efforts and research into the health, wellbeing and productivity in office buildings has led to the creation of the WorldGBC Framework guide, which is intended to inform organizations and industry workers of the different types of measurements that they can utilize in order to understand and measure the impact of a building’s environment on its occupants.
The IGBC is now delighted to make the following guides available to its members:
- Health, Wellbeing & Productivity in Offices for Occupiers
- Health, Wellbeing & Productivity in Offices for Design and Build Teams
- Health, Wellbeing & Productivity in Offices for Facility Managers
- Health, Wellbeing & Productivity in Offices for Investors
If you are interested in learning more about data collection and needs, the relationship between building and human performance, and the role new technologies and tools can play in further defining this relationship, IGBC will be hosting a workshop that will provide early hands-on experience and valuable insights from an industry professional, Richard Francis on November 9th.
