The Financial Times Recognizes CBRE as a Diversity Leader in Europe for the second consecutive year
18 Nov 2020
CBRE has once again secured a place in the Financial Times Diversity Leaders report for its EMEA business. The report recognizes the European companies and institutions that are considered to be the most inclusive employers by employees across Europe.
The Diversity Leaders 2021 have been identified through an independent survey of more than 100,000 employees across 16 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, more than 15,000 privately held and publicly listed companies had their performance surveyed.
CBRE was also recognized in the Financial Times’ inaugural Diversity leader list last year and is the only commercial real estate services firm to be featured two years in a row. This year, CBRE was also reaccredited with the National Equality Standard (NES) in the UK, having been the first real estate advisory firm to receive the accolade in 2018.
Paul Hawtin, Head of People, Global Advisory Services at CBRE said: “To be recognized as a Diversity Leader by the Financial Times for the second year running demonstrates our commitment to being an industry leader in Diversity and Inclusion. Providing a work environment that attracts, develops and retains the success of every individual remains a top priority for our business.”
