NEW YORK, March 4, 2024 /3BL/ - The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), the global authority for driving market transformation toward healthy buildings, organizations and communities, has today announced the winners of the IWBI Awards. The program celebrates the positive impact and leadership of organizations and individuals who have leveraged WELL to make extraordinary strides in health, well-being and equity in 2023.

  • The IWBI Organizational Awards are presented to organizations for their commitment to prioritizing health and well-being across their organization or real estate portfolio, often through the WELL at scale program.
  • The IWBI Individual Awards elevate passionate advocates and leaders – WELL Faculty and WELL APs (Accredited Professionals) – within the global WELL community across a wide range of categories.

“The people and organizations who champion WELL are the lifeblood of our movement, driving real, positive change for communities around the world,” said IWBI President and CEO Rachel Hodgdon. “I extend my personal congratulations to all award recipients for their exceptional leadership, passion and commitment that is making people-first places possible everywhere.”

These leaders will also be recognized at the WELL Conference, to be held in Long Beach, Calif. on May 7-9, 2024, and at regional WELL Summits around the world.

WELL at scale enables organizations to measure and improve organizational health performance and its impact across all locations. Many IWBI Organizational Awards are determined using an organization’s WELL Score, a number out of 100 that reflects the WELL strategies earned across all of an enterprise’s locations, weighted by the number of people impacted by those achievements, as well as achievement by WELL concept area. Over time, this score can be contextualized by industry, region, fund and location use-types, and will provide a ranking in one of these areas. With this data, organizations can measure their impact on people, while also comparing their progress internally and against industry peers.

WELL Faculty and WELL APs—a community of more than 25,000 people in 129 countries whose professional credential denotes expertise in WELL—have worked hand-in-hand with organizations pursuing IWBI’s programs including its flagship WELL Standard, the WELL ratings and WELL at scale, now collectively spanning over 5 billion square feet across 131 countries. The 2023 cohort of award winners have influenced WELL’s progress by demonstrating exceptional leadership through action, feedback and proactive support.
