CBRE has been named to the 2018 America’s Best Employers For Diversity list by Forbes. The company earned a #45 ranking on the list of 250 organizations and is the only commercial real estate company to receive this honor.
The Forbes ranking is the result of employee responses to surveys that asked about diversity, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and disability. Other factors considered were the gender split of management teams and boards, and the company’s proactive communication about diversity.
"CBRE prides itself in creating a work environment that supports all of our employees and values the differences of each individual," says Bobby Griffin, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion for the Americas at CBRE. "We are honored to be named to this list and we will continue our efforts to celebrate the unique qualities that our employees bring to our company."
Forbes and the research firm Stastista surveyed 30,000 U.S. employees in companies that have at least 1,000 employees.
In December 2017, FORTUNE magazine also named CBRE one of the best U.S. workplaces for diversity.
