Welcome to WELL
At the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), we’re committed to transforming health and well-being with our people-first approach to buildings, organizations and communities. Since the launch of our WELL Building Standard (WELL) in 2014, 2,000+ companies, including over 100 of the Fortune 500, have adopted WELL as an evidence-based roadmap for scaling health across their organization.
WELL applies the science of how physical and social environments affect human health, well-being and performance. Developed over 10 years and backed by the latest scientific research, WELL outlines key building-level and organizational strategies across 10 categories.
Take a targeted approach by focusing on a subset of WELL strategies that address specific themes such as, health, safety and performance.
