On February 9, 2022, IFMA San Diego hosted an education luncheon discussing the WELL Building Standard and how the pandemic has changed the way companies implement the program.
Denise Colestock-Tamez, account executive at Milliken & Co., highlighted the recent surge in WELL projects from 5.7 million projects registered pre-pandemic to over 2.3 billion registered projects in 2021.
With the market pushing for healthier, safer workplaces and the pressure from global investors for healthy ESG reporting, public companies are now mandated to report on ESG procedures. The reporting platform for WELL Building Standard has become a widely used tool in this process.
Attendees left the event with an understanding of how to start communicating about health and safety within their own facilities, as well as ways to take action.
Denise Colestock-Tamez, WELL Faculty, LEED AP BD+C has worked in the commercial design industry as a designer and now as an account executive with Milliken & Co. in the floorcovering division in San Diego. She is actively involved on boards for International Interior Designers Association (IIDA) and IFMA San Diego.
