- Research suggests that integrating health-promoting strategies within buildings and communities, like the ones found within the Fitwel Standard, supports improved tenant satisfaction, and this improved satisfaction often translates into increased tenant referral rates, higher occupancy rates, and increased ROI. Certification includes design strategies and policies for lowering stress levels, reducing injury, and mitigating the risk of disease — ultimately improving productivity.
