Partnership to drive wellbeing in flex offices

8th April 2024

The International Well Building Institute (IWBI) has joined forces with The Instant Group to improve health and wellbeing practices in co-working and flexible workspaces. 

Joint efforts between the healthy buildings certification body and flexible workspace marketplace will target opportunities to advance innovative solutions for healthy coworking and flexible workspaces.

A growing body of research shows health interventions help support workplace satisfaction, comfort and productivity, while also helping attract and retain talent. In addition, a number of studies have demonstrated the business case for healthy buildings, which can attract higher rents and longer lease terms.

“We are excited to be joining forces with The Instant Group,” said Rachel Hodgdon, president and CEO of IWBI.  “As more and more organizations embrace the outsized role workspaces have on health, this presents a tremendous opportunity to elevate the wellbeing of the thousands of people who use these flexible spaces every day.”

“Companies which optimise their spaces for health and wellbeing are transforming their workforce into an even greater asset and developing happier, more productive employees,” said Sam Pickering, executive director, sustainability at Instant. 

“This collaboration is a logical follow-up to our sustainability index, which launched in 2023 to ensure quality data on building performance and helping operators and occupiers track and report on their performance.”
