The Financial Times Recognizes CBRE as a Diversity Leader in Europe
LONDON, 22 November, 2019 – CBRE has secured a place in the first ever Financial Times Diversity Leaders report for its EMEA business, and is the only commercial real estate services firm on the list. The report recognises the European companies and institutions that are considered to be the most inclusive employers by employees across Europe.
The Diversity Leaders 2020 have been identified through an independent survey of more than 80,000 employees across EMEA countries and sectors and the opinions of human resources and recruitment experts. Survey participants were asked their opinions about the extent to which their employer promotes diversity and their views on topics related to age, gender, ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation. In total, 10,000 privately held and publicly listed companies had their performance surveyed.
Last year, CBRE was the first real estate advisory firm to receive the National Equality Standard (NES) across its UK business and the 22nd UK company overall.
“Being recognised as a Diversity Leader by the Financial Times is a great accolade and demonstrates our strong commitment to being a true industry leader in the D&I arena. It is a testament to how far we have already evolved our business and our ongoing efforts to create an inclusive working environment that attracts, develops and celebrates the success of every individual.” -Paul Hawtin, Head of People, Advisory Services, APAC/EMEA at CBRE and Lisa White, Vice President, People, GWS-EMEA at CBRE
