employee + community wellbeing

Our Purpose

We contribute to causes that strengthen the wellbeing of the communities in which we operate. We also find different ways to engage with our employees, customers, partners, and community that go deeper, stretch wider and have a more meaningful impact on the world around us.

Local Donation Partnerships

On a regular basis, we donate unused materials to local charities and not-for-profits, affording us the ability to divert waste from landfill while supporting the communities in which we work and live.

At our StudioTK facility in North Carolina, we donate leftover fabric to the Scrap Exchange, a local waste diversion collective and charity that offers arts and crafts materials to local artists, schools, and any other individuals engaged in creative projects. 

Knowledge Sharing Opportunities

We actively engage in programming to share knowledge that advances our customers, the industry, and ourselves. We do this across a variety of forums including workshops, continuing education forums, thought leadership webinars, WELL AP exam prep, study courses and coaching as well as teaching partnerships with higher education institutes.

Professional Development + Training

We offer enhanced training opportunities via a variety of platforms including online classes, webinars and in-person training.
