NEW YORK, April 1, 2022 /CSRwire/ – 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. These additions signify a 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 manufacturing, green building, consulting and higher education sectors.
“The IWBI membership community is on the front line of WELL adoption around the world,” said Rachel Hodgdon, President and CEO of IWBI. “With pandemic recovery a priority, communities and organizations are leveraging WELL’s people-first approach to improve health and well-being for the long term. As ever we are excited and humbled to work alongside these global leaders to advance this movement toward a healthy future.”

The IWBI membership community accompanies the uptake of the WELL Building Standard (WELL) offerings including WELL Certification, the WELL Health-Safety Rating and WELL Portfolio programs, which stand at over 3 billion square feet of projects across nearly 110 countries. Much of WELL’s adoption 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 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.
