April 24, 2023

Motko’s Wellness Technology is the 1st occupant health education platform to be aligned with strategies in the WELL Building Standard

Motko announced today its eligibility of the Works with WELL trademark for its Wellness Technology through a licensing program offered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The new trademark demonstrates Wellness Technology aligns with health strategies within the WELL Building Standard (WELL).

WELL is the world’s leading standard that focuses on advancing people’s health and well-being with a library of holistic, evidence-based strategies applicable across buildings, organizations and communities. Developed over 10 years and backed by the latest scientific research, WELL outlines key building-level interventions and organizational strategies across 10 concept areas:Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind andCommunity.

Motko’s Wellness Technology works to support the health intent in the WELL Nourishment, Movement, Mind and Community concept and aligns with five feature specifications. These alignments mean the product can contribute to the achievement of the following WELL features(s):

“Promoting health and well-being first is a priority for Motko. We care about health and happiness of others and thrive to improve the quality of life of people globally,” said Kira Golenko, founder & CEO of Motko. “Impactful change does not happen alone. We are humbled to be a part of the IWBI community and look forward to demonstrating our commitment to elevate communities and built environment.”

IWBI granted the license to Motko to use the Works with WELL trademark after Motko submitted an application to IWBI and underwent a third-party document review to confirm that WellnessTechnology meets the requirements for the license required by IWBI.

Motko’s Wellness Technology creates a healthier tenant experience, inclusive community, and positive social sustainability by promoting health culture and providing access to well-being and health resources and events. The available resources include impactful well-being frameworks, holistic nutrition support, performance, DEI and mental health webinars, community-based sport and health events and more. Motko’s goal is to prevent major challenges, such as burnout, depression, anxiety, imposter syndrome and presenteeism, from happening in the first place and to build a strong and mindful community.

The alignment between Wellness Technology and such WELL feature(s) demonstrates Motko’s commitment to advancing products and solutions that support human health and well-being.

Launched in 2022, the Works with WELL trademark licensing program recognizes products and solutions that contribute to the achieving of specific features in the WELL Standard. The Works with WELL trademark indicates specific alignment between an eligible product and at least one WELL feature or threshold, thereby informing the market of solutions available to support organizations advancing people-first places. Eligibility to use this trademark does not suggest products with this distinction guarantee the achievement of WELL Certification, a WELL Rating or any standalone WELL feature.

Driven by the global demand for healthier places and healthier organizations that support people to thrive, WELL adoption has grown exponentially since its launch in 2014. As of April 2023, WELL strategies have been used in 4.6 billion square-feet of spaces, supporting the health and well-being of an estimated 22 million people in more than 41,000 locations spanning over 120 countries.
