Building owners, employers, and tenants are starting to place increasingly more value on health and well-being within their living and work spaces. For employers, this equates to increased productivity, lower absentee rates, and reduced healthcare expenses. For employees and tenants, a health and well-being program increases happiness and lowers illnesses. Studies show that green buildings have higher claims of productivity resulting from better comfort and controllability of systems, good indoor air quality, improved lighting, more daylight and views, and fewer sick days resulting from being in a healthier and more productive space. One study by Carnegie Mellon University has shown productivity increases in high performance green buildings ranging from 0.4% to 18%. By implementing a Health and Wellness Program, companies can increase worker productivity, lower absenteeism, reduce health care costs, and improve employee satisfaction and engagement. Per a 2013 Gallup poll, “unhealthy U.S. workers’ absenteeism costs $253 billion.” The average worker spends 8.9 hours per day working. For an office worker, most of that time is spent sitting. This increasing inactivity and stress plays an important role in the global increase of chronic disease. The four major chronic diseases: cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke), cancer, type 2 diabetes and chronic lung disease, account for over 60% of deaths in the world. As a large portion of an individual’s time is spent within the walls of work, employers are positioned to make a significant difference in the health and wellbeing of employees and building occupants.
