Looking beyond efficiency and sustainability, the design of buildings has shifted to a focus on promoting occupant health. With workplace wellness being an integral part of our company culture, we designed our new headquarters with employee health and productivity top of mind. We are thrilled to announce that our office has achieved Fitwel 2-star rating for Fitwel v2.1 for New Commercial Interiors.
Situated in a 34-floor high-rise in downtown Atlanta with access to multiple forms of transit, parks that offer places of respite or exercise, dedicated bike lanes, and plenty of amenities within walking distance, we earned exceptional marks for our office location, which is one of the main drivers of the rating system. Aiming to encourage an active lifestyle within the workplace, we provided sit-n-stand desks throughout the space. We also addressed the often-ignored mental and emotional wellbeing by providing amenities such as a quiet room and lactation room. Our in-house Wellness Committee regularly organizes on-site mental and social health programs, such as yoga sessions and flu vaccinations to ensure that all facets of health and wellness are readily accessible to our staff.
While we were not eligible for enough points to earn the top tier of three stars, because we do not have multiple floors and do not provide food for our employees in the form of a cafeteria, café, or vending machines, we were still able to incorporate more than 55 strategies and achieve 105 points out of the attempted 109 points. We congratulate our team led by Uma Patwardhan for their efforts to ensure that our new headquarters meet the Fitwel certification standards that so closely align with our company values.
