Herman Miller has joined the International WELL Building Institute
Last month Herman Miller became the first furniture manufacturer in the industry to join the International WELL Building Institute. The company is now participating in the WELL Building program, which enables organizations to enhance their spaces and improve human well-being across a global footprint.
“Building on a legacy of human-centered design, we’re excited to explore the WELL Portfolio program,” said Matthew Stares, Herman Miller’s Vice President of Global Real Estate, Architecture and Development. “It will allow us to analyze a broad swathe of our facilities through a dedicated lens exclusively focused on well-being, and to make decisions that will measurably improve the lives of our people,” said Matthew Stares, Herman Miller’s Vice President of Global Real Estate, Architecture and Development.
The WELL Portfolio program allows organizations to strengthen building performance while improving human well-being at scale by applying the WELL Building Standard (WELL) across multiple spaces in a streamlined approach. Designed to maximize the positive outcomes related to human health and well-being, along with the value of the buildings themselves, WELL Portfolio is a program for companies at the leading edge of the movement to improve global health.
MarxModa’s strong partnership with Herman Miller will allow us to closely follow the steps they take to prioritize health throughout their company. We are excited to learn from their experience and share the resources and insights we discover with any of our partners who are interested in instituting higher wellness standards in their own spaces.
