Leadership in Building Health and Safety Recognized

ESD’s Willis Tower headquarters has successfully recertified its WELL Health-Safety Rating for another year.

Companies earning the designation are evaluated annually to confirm the continued high level of support for the health and safety of employees. The WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based and third-party verified certification developed by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) over the course of 10 years and backed by the latest scientific research.

In order to retain the right to display the WELL decal/QR code on the company’s entry doors, ESD had to meet high standards in categories of cleaning and sanitation, emergency preparedness, health services resources, air and water quality, stakeholder engagement and communication, and more.

The rating supplements ESD’s previous LEED, Fitwel and Be Safe Chicago health and wellness certifications. These certifications are becoming increasingly valuable as building owners and operators are looking for ways to demonstrate a safe environment for workers to return to post-pandemic.

Creating a safe and healthy work environment for its employees, and helping other organizations to do the same, is part of ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment. Learn more about ESD, its leadership, people, and values.
