IWBI Collaborates with Leading Organizations to Launch WELL Enterprise Provider Designation

Share

The International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) today launched the WELL Enterprise Provider (WELL EP) designation for organizations that demonstrate expertise for delivering a comprehensive suite of WELL solutions at a portfolio or enterprise scale. WELL EPs guide their clients to identify and implement WELL strategies, helping companies meet their larger business objectives in areas such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting, human and social capital management, and workplace strategy and policy.

Through this new program, IWBI and WELL EPs work together to more efficiently deliver the many benefits of WELL solutions across real estate portfolios and entire organizations. Companies granted the WELL EP designation offer their demonstrated expertise in WELL along with tailored resources to support the growing demand for enhanced health and well-being for employees, customers and communities.

“In the wake of the COVID -19 pandemic, the exponential growth of WELL adoption calls for innovative ways to deliver supportive services at scale,” said Rachel Hodgdon, President and CEO of IWBI. “We stood up the WELL Enterprise Provider pilot in collaboration with more than a dozen organizations worldwide to develop a solution to meet this market need.” Pilot participants included consulting firms, real estate companies and design and architectural practices.

“Co-creation with our community is a hallmark of IWBI’s development process,” she added. “We collaborated with pilot participants and drew heavily on their expertise in providing enterprise-scale services. Our new WELL EP network will seamlessly deliver WELL offerings, rapidly advancing our shared market transformation goals.”

Organizations that participated in the pilot included Ernst & Young LLP, CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield in the Americas, JLL, Savills China, ARUP, HOK, M Moser Associates, Environmental Market Solutions Inc. (EMSI), BEE Incorporations, Shanghai Research Institute of Building Sciences Co., Ltd (SRIBS), A SustainAble Production (ASAP), Ecoworks Studio, and En3 Sustainability Solutions.

Boehringer Ingelheim Enters Clinical Collaboration with Amgen to Study BI 1701963, a SOS1::pan-KRAS Inhibitor, in Combination with LUMAKRAS™ (sotorasib), a KRAS G12C Inhibitor16.9.2021 14:00:00 CEST | Press release

Boehringer Ingelheim today announced a clinical phase I collaboration with Amgen to evaluate the combination of BI 1701963, the first and most advanced SOS1::pan-KRAS inhibitor exhibiting activity against a broad spectrum of KRAS alleles, and LUMAKRAS™ (sotorasib), the first US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved KRASG12C inhibitor for adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.

Preclinical data suggest that the combination of a KRASG12C inhibitor with a SOS1::pan-KRAS inhibitor may result in increased anti-tumor activity in KRAS G12C-driven cancers based on the complementary mechanisms of these targeted oncology agents.1 2 By shifting the equilibrium from active KRAS towards the inactive form, SOS1::pan-KRAS inhib

Entersekt Enables FIDO Authentication for Improved Security, User Experience, and Customer Choice16.9.2021 13:00:00 CEST | Press release

CYBER attacks pose a massive risk for financial institutions. The cost of data breaches averages tens of millions of dollars, and other after-effects are often far-reaching for organizations and their customers. At the root of these breaches are passwords – in an estimated 80% of cases. “Eliminating passwords and replacing them with more secure and user-friendly solutions is critical,” says Entersekt’s SVP Product, Christian Ali. Ali says there’s been a massive surge in online fraud in the past 18 months. Existing methods of authenticating consumers’ identities and transactions typically rely on outdated, less secure solutions like passwords or OTPs, while more secure solutions often require a mobile app. In addition, poor user experience often leads to cart abandonment – and lost sales. Users are frustrated and banks are at risk. To address the divide between strong security on the one hand and good user experience on the other, Entersekt has expanded its authentication suite to inclu
