BSRIA will host a ‘Measuring Occupant Wellbeing’ event in Manchester next month.

The event is on Thursday 7 September (9.30am-2.30pm) and will cover a range of topics, including:
  • How to embed wellbeing in your workplace.
  • Using building data to predict wellbeing and productivity.
  • Requirements for tracking health and wellbeing in buildings.
  • A workshop to develop how this could be managed in the building.
  • IoT: enabling a healthy workforce in healthy buildings.
BSRIA will also be launching its new Wellbeing Network. 

Many organisations have started to become more concerned and interested in offering an environment that can improve occupants’ wellbeing. All descriptions of wellbeing indicate that it is more than just the “lack of negative situations, such as illness”, but also includes positive features such as happiness. ‘Well’ buildings can support the occupants to thrive and happily achieve their optimum ability.

June Davis, Business Manager, BSRIA North, said:  “Any measures that mean a workforce performs at its peak performance and generally flourish is crucial in today’s working environment. Both in terms of happiness and the economic output gained therein for any business.

"Wellbeing is the mixture of light, air, space and noise levels to achieve the perfect work environment and optimum output and indeed getting the right balance to realise this. We urge members and industry to attend to learn more and share their views with fellow guests.”

The event takes place at Hotel Football, 99 Sir Matt Busby Way, Stretford, Manchester, M16 0SZ. It is free for BSRIA members and costs £20 for non-members (additional delegates £10).
