July 1, 2021 GMT

--News Direct--

NEW YORK, July 1, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) is pleased to announce new organizations that have joined the IWBI membership program, an expanding program that offers commercial benefits, as well as brand visibility and networking opportunities. The continued growth of the program signifies an increasing prioritization of health and well-being in the places where we live, work and play, as organizations and communities across the globe look to long-term health solutions. The most recent additions to this membership network include hospitality groups and fitness studios, as well as food service companies and sustainability firms.

“The IWBI membership community’s continued growth is a signal that companies and organizations are truly committed to people first places,” said Rachel Hodgdon, president and CEO of IWBI. “On the heels of a devastating pandemic, health and well-being are investments that benefit in the short and long-term. We’re excited and humbled to work alongside these organizations to advance this growing movement toward a better future for everyone, everywhere.”

The program has grown by more than 20 percent over the last year, with more than 150 current members since the program’s inception in March 2019. As a result, IWBI increased capacity to help support the growing participation of its global membership program.

The continued growth of the IWBI membership program accompanies the rapid global uptake of the WELL Building Standard (WELL), the WELL Health-Safety Rating and WELL Portfolio programs, which now stand at over 2.5 billion square feet of projects across 100 countries. Much of WELL’s success is driven by a global network of WELL Accredited Professionals (WELL APs) and exam registrants, a community now totaling nearly 20,000 people.

There are two tiers of membership and a third designation for companies already enrolled in the WELL Portfolio 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 pathways for WELL advocates and champions to stay connected, share best practices, explore new shared initiatives and receive greater recognition for these efforts.
