Well-being

With a long legacy of scientific research and innovation, Milliken has always had a strong commitment to solving real human problems and ‘doing good’.  This enables us to engineer products and craft solutions that not only last longer and perform better but that also improve the health, wellbeing and performance of people.

Standards such as LEED are directed mainly at buildings, whereas wellness initiatives such as the Well Building Standard are an investment in people. Well moves the emphasis away from physical structures and directs it toward the people inside. After all we spend approximately 90% of our time indoors.

One of the primary drivers of green/healthy interior design is the opportunity to directly impact the productivity of occupants. While operational savings, such as reduced energy and water bills are substantial achievements....few investments generate greater returns than those designed to boost employee productivity.

Happiness - The Catalyst for Good Design

Flooring manufacturer Milliken and The Happiness Index, an organisation that analyses the cultural health of organisations, have collaborated on a report to establish whether good design in a workplace can make people happy and if so, how? The report is based on qualitative and quantitive data from architects and designers’ responses, underpinned by content from an expert industry panel.
