Workplace Wellness and Productivity
It is estimated that US employers lose over $225 billion annually due to health-related decreased productivity (per The Integrated Benefits Institute). However, studies in a JLL research paper reported that workplaces that have adopted 'green' or wellness measures have seen an increase of productivity by 20%.
Additional studies have shown that companies with health and wellness programs, or wellness-informed design, have higher employee retention and attraction, lower healthcare costs, higher brand equity, and outperform other companies on the stock market.
The piece by John Caulfield in Building Design + Construction details this, and other studies.
