Leesman+ certification

Leesman+ is our independent validation of outstanding employee workplace experience. It is a globally recognised certification that offers organisations a clear stretch target across projects.

The certification is awarded to top-tier workplaces that have achieved an Lmi of 70 or above, providing a precedent to organisations around the world. Leesman+ certified buildings constitute an elevated benchmark, allowing us to provide valuable insights into the quality of the features, services and infrastructure that surpass the majority.

*All Leesman+ buildings must meet strict response rate criteria

Leesman+ certification table 2021

2021 was another challenging year for workplaces across the globe. As we adapted to a hybrid working environment, organisations have had to understand their need in delivering outstanding experiences everywhere to best support their employees.

With employees dispersed in multiple locations for much of the year, 4 organisations across 7 individual workplaces received Leesman+ certification. The variety of sectors, countries and building types proves that there isn’t one single strategy or workplace ingredient guaranteed to deliver high performance. See the table below to learn more about the latest batch of Leesman+ buildings.
