Leverage your office space as a health and wellness tool.

Your employees care about health and wellness

What is a “healthy” building?

  1. Ventilation
  2. Air Quality
  3. Thermal Health
  4. Moisture
  5. Dust and Pests
  6. Safety and Security
  7. Water Quality
  8. Noise
  9. Lighting and Views¹⁵

So where’s the data?

  • On the Green Building days, the researchers lowered the levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) — one of the most pervasive indoor air pollutants that can originate from everything from printers to furnishings.
  • On the Green Building+ days, the researchers lowered the VOC levels and increased the ventilation rates (brought in more fresh air).

What does this all mean?

  • Attract top talent
  • Retain that talent (and your investment in them)
  • Get the best performance out of lawyers and staff
  • Build resilience and reduce business interruption
  • Better serve existing clients and attract new ones.
