OFS Corporate Headquarters achieves WELL certification
OFS is thrilled to accept the WELL Platinum award after 3 years of adaptation to ensure our office best supports employees and visitors in their journey to wellness.
More than just a check-in
"Hi. How are you?" is a question we ask ourselves and others daily, instead of truly considering our mental, physical, and emotional health, we and others often retort with a quick surface-level answer. These check-ins must transition into real, consistent and daily smarter choices. So, we took action to make choosing healthy both easier and automatic, such as access to abundant natural light and good air.
Starting in 2014, we acknowledged that we need to dig deeper to be able to best support one another and our employees in their overall well-being. We began to ask the following questions under the guidance of the International WELL Building Institute:
How is your mental, physical, and emotional health?
Do you feel supported and encouraged?
Do the people we are trying to support have real opportunities to make good choices to promote their daily well-being?
In our workplace and every space that we touch, we are working to increase awareness of healthy practices and contribute to places that improve people’s lives. Together with you and WELL, we know we can help people start this journey and make a difference.
The WELL Building Standard™ is the first building standard to focus on the health and wellness of building occupants. Developed by Delos and managed by the International WELL Building Institute™, WELL was designed using evidence-based medical and scientific research to create a built environment that better supports human health and well-being.
The WELL building Standard™ provides a model for design and construction to integrate human health features in the built environment. This program is a performance based system to measure the impact of built environments on human health.
