The Benefits of a Wellness Conscious Building
Benefits For Tenants
By living in a wellness conscious building, tenants can expect to see some lifestyle changes and additional habits form naturally without feeling as if you “have to”. The benefits that come from the design of these buildings can help boost immune systems by providing cleaner air and a more sanitary environment. Additional windows and layout patterns allow for increased light which increases vitamin production within a person’s body, giving them added energy and improvements in their overall mood. This increases the interaction tendencies of tenants and builds a friendly community within a residence. The financial benefits cannot be ignored either. The less often you get sick, the more you can work. It is also less money spent annually on over-the-counter and prescription medications.
Benefits For Employees
Employees can benefit greatly from working within wellness conscious buildings. By increasing the overall mood and happiness of employees, they are able to stay on point with their work. Productivity increases due to increased focused, as well as few sick days taken by employees. When employee’s do get sick, they typically return to work sooner than those who do not work within a wellness conscious building. This means more money in every employee’s pocket each year, and less money spent on doctor’s visits and other medical costs.
Benefits For Building Owners
Building owners get the same benefits as both employees and tenants when it comes to working or living in a wellness conscious building. The healthier the employees or residents of a building are, the better your bottom line is going to look. Both employee’s and tenants of wellness conscious buildings miss less work and spend far less money on medical care and medicine. This means businesses keep more employee’s working at maximum efficiency, increasing the businesses overall revenue. In terms of tenants, the less work that is missed the less likely they are to fall behind on their rent or utilities.
While the investment to upgrade your current building, or change the design of a building you are about to build, might seem like a lot, the long-term benefits are undeniable.
