Supporting the industry to enhance the wellbeing of our workforce and our community and drive positive culture change
The Built environment presents a myriad of wellbeing challenges that impact both our workforce and our communities on a daily basis.
Workforce wellbeing, including the wellbeing of our sub-contractors and suppliers, is a critical concern that demands immediate attention – with continuing poor wellbeing statistics and distressingly high incidence of suicide within our industry.
It is imperative that we better understand the unique set of factors that contribute to these statistics and the challenges that face those working in the built environment sector. It is only by better understanding these factors and how we can influence the industry to make transformative change, that we will be able to enable sustained positive wellbeing culture change.

It can be used by actors across the value chain, from designers to occupiers, construction firms to policymakers.Download the Framework
