“We take pride in our ongoing commitment to upholding or exceeding industry-leading health and safety standards,” said Taubman’s Director of Facilities, Energy and Sustainability Steve Moore. “Recognition from the International WELL Building Institute and the WELL Health-Safety Rating acknowledges our care and concern for our people, our customers and for the communities in which we operate.”

Throughout the pandemic, Taubman shopping centers have implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitization procedures to reduce respiratory particle exposure. Prior to COVID-19, the company regularly conducted ventilation assessments and mold and moisture management, among many other actions, to ensure the health and safety of employees and customers prior to COVID-19. Further, Taubman has for decades focused on emergency preparedness planning, business continuity strategies and expanding emergency resources to ensure resilience if faced with a crisis. The company also has a sharp focus on the total well-being of each employee, which can be seen in its comprehensive benefits package, wellness programs and vacation policy.
