The risk of inaction on health and well-being outweighs the risk of action, says Harrison St, Heitman, Kilroy, WELL
Buildings do more than just house tenants. They can improve on the health and well-being of their occupants.
While research around the ROI of health and well-being measures is gathering pace, senior ESG executives argue that, in the aftermath of a global pandemic, this is the time to take action. Health and well-being is about the safety and security of tenants and users. Improving environmental conditions can also positively impact productivity.
NAREIM speaks with Jill Brosig of Harrison Street, Laura Craft of Heitman, Rachel Hodgdon of the International WELL Building Institute and Sara Neff of Kilroy Realty Corporation on the impact of Covid-19 on the work already underway, how to further improve the tenant experience and how small actions could have many beneficial long-term impacts.
