Kimball International Inc. (Nasdaq: KBAL) this week announced its corporate headquarters in Jasper has earned the WELL Certified Platinum designation. The WELL certification is given to buildings and organizations that seek to enhance human health and well-being.
Kimball completed renovations to its 52,000-square-foot headquarters in December 2019 and said at the time that it was seeking WELL certification.
The company, which makes furniture for the workplace, health, and hospitality markets, says the designation for its headquarters adds to the multiple showrooms that have already been WELL certified.
“We are thrilled to have received this designation. It attributes to our efforts of putting people first, whether that is an employee or customer visiting our space,” Andrea Rohleder, brand and customer experience manager for Kimball International, said in written remarks. “In leading this endeavor, we are truly able to support the ongoing initiatives of our company and are pursuing this WELL status in all our showroom locations across the country.”
The certification is awarded by the International WELL Building Institute and comes in three levels: Silver, Gold and Platinum.
