Can real estate strategy better support wellbeing at work? This question is the focus of a collaborative investigation by Leesman, a global leader in assessing employee experience, and Delos, a wellness real estate and technology company. For the first time, Leesman will include a special “Environmental Wellbeing Module” based on review and synthesis of research on topics related to workplace design, workplace wellbeing, occupational health, happiness, psychological wellbeing, and environmental stress among others. Intended to add a minimal amount of questions while testing key constructs, the module can be easily added to the core Leesman survey and is available upon request to all buildings interested in tracking environmental wellbeing. Even the highest performing workplaces within the Leesman databank have more work to do when it comes to supporting employee wellbeing. The results of the pilot, conducted with one of the “Big 5” accounting firms and its 21 UK based buildings in late 2018, suggests that even the highest performing workplaces within the Leesman databank have more work to do when it comes to supporting employee wellbeing. Speaking about the collaboration, Leesman’s Development Director & Head of Insights and Research, Peggie Rothe PhD, said: “Following the pilot, we’re now canvassing interest from Fortune 500 companies who are committed to pursuing wellness at work. This proves health and wellbeing is sliding higher up the business agenda. In time, the results from the wellness module will arm businesses with the data they need to deliver their wellness strategies.” Whitney Austin Gray PhD, Senior Vice President of Delos, and Head of Delos Insights, added: “Our prerogative is to ensure healthy buildings evolve and continue to support human health. Leesman has amassed data from more than half a million respondents and the benchmark has a global scope. We’re excited about working together to validate the impact and investment of healthy buildings to support health and wellbeing on a global scale.”
