SHANGHAI, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- naked Hub, the largest network of premium co-working space in Asia, is partnering with RESET to research and integrate new health & wellness concepts within co-working. RESET is an international building standard and certification program for healthy buildings, measured in real-time.
"Health, wellness and sustainability are at the core of naked Group's identity," says Jonathan Seliger, CEO of naked Hub, "Air quality, access to natural light, acoustics, healthy building materials, and areas to play, stretch and move are all critical to the health and productivity of people growing their businesses in our Hubs. With RESET we're exploring how to benchmark and communicate these benefits and creating new ways to innovate the naked experience and raise the standard of the industry."
"Every industry has a leader which lifts the standard for everyone else. naked has done that for hospitality and is now doing it for co-working," says Raefer Wallis, founder of RESET, "This is a first and that's very important for the co-working industry where standards are generally low or non-existent. Many are designed to photograph well but are generally unfit for human health. Some even display false air quality data. Headaches from chemicals, drowsiness and increased sick days from lack of clean fresh air, lower productivity from poor light and poor acoustics aren't good for anyone's bottom line, personal health or that of the environment."
As part of the agreement, naked and RESET will be using the Hubs as test centres for new healthy building initiatives such as fostering, tracking and communicating the level of movement and fitness within the Hubs. naked Hub will also be benchmarking air quality and the selection of healthy building materials according to the RESET Standard. RESET will use the data to inform the next generation of standards for co-working spaces.
"People learn by doing," says Seliger, "Our aim is to make health & wellness fun, fully interactive and part of everyday work, even for the things that are mostly invisible like healthy materials. Ultimately, we're building long-term relationships with our community - we want them to be part of the family for a long time. For that we need to provide the world's best environments for business and human health."
"naked is a born pioneer," says Wallis, "we're excited to have them blazing a new path in co-working by seeking new ways to measure, improve and communicate the health of their people and the environment."
