Wellness in the Asia Pacific Workplace September 2017
- Wellness programmes offer companies a significant opportunity to forge more successful and sustainable businesses by creating workplaces that support their agenda as well as those of their employees.
- In Asia Pacific, some companies have introduced a series of standalone initiatives to improve wellness while others have adopted a more holistic approach. A select few have gone a step further and adopted the International WELL Building Institute’s (IWBI) WELL Building Standard™ (WELL).
- This ViewPoint by CBRE Research identifies the factors driving the adoption of office wellness programmes in Asia Pacific; provides an overview of the WELL Building Standard; and considers the other wellness options available to occupiers and landlords. It also pinpoints the barriers to adopting WELL – many of which are unique to certain markets - and provides solutions as to how they can be overcome
- Utimately companies must carefully consider whether they would like to adopt basic short term measures to improve workplace wellness or embrace a longer-term strategy. CBRE Research believes that only an holistic approach can drive fundamental change and have a lasting impact on the bottom line.
