Workplace wellness is a multi-billion dollar industry, but what’s the truth behind the hype? At Irvine Company, we believe in a 360-degree approach to wellness that starts with a thoughtful, intentional approach to workplace design. Research clearly shows that a well-designed workplace can positively impact an employee’s physical and mental health, affecting engagement, productivity, and creativity.
Three elements are key to workplace wellness design: workstation flexibility, outdoor access, and movement opportunities.
When companies choose a La Jolla UTC workplace community in San Diego, they’re also making a powerful value statement to their employees. Research finds that even if employees do not actively utilize corporate wellness offerings like an on-site fitness center or health screening, simply providing these offerings can improve employee productivity, thanks to increased job satisfaction, gratitude, and reciprocity. At Irvine Company, we call this “wellness by design” – and it’s just one way we make what’s exceptional today even better tomorrow.
