The IWBI membership community accompanies the uptake of the WELL Building Standard (WELL) offerings including WELL Certification, WELL ratings and WELL at scale programs, which stand at nearly 5 billion square feet of real estate applying WELL strategies across 127 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 24,700 people. Organizations have the opportunity to join IWBI’s membership community through its Works with WELL licensing program, which recognizes products and solutions that contribute to the achievement of specific features in the WELL Standard as indicated by a Works with WELL trademark. Works with WELL enrollment includes IWBI membership.
There are two tiers of membership and a third designation for companies enrolled in the WELL at scale program. 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.
