Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
An inclusive culture is a thriving culture. We are committed to our employees feeling safe, valued and heard.
The More Perspectives We Have the More Dimensions We See
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are more than just values—they're a competitive advantage. By creating a culture where our employees are recognized for their contribution and given a chance to grow, we regularly open ourselves and our business to new opportunities.
With a shared foundation of respect, integrity, service and excellence—values we call RISE—we use our position as a leading global company to positively impact:
- Our Culture: Strengthening our inclusive culture so our people are safe, valued and heard.
- Our Talent: Increasing the diversity of our workforce through ongoing recruitment, training, and retention initiatives.
- Our Marketplace: Investing in diverse suppliers and increasing our philanthropic activities to impact the community.
Our Diverse Development Initiatives
Targeted approach to succession, sponsorship, development and mentoring to improve the gender balance in our leadership teams and creating opportunities in areas that traditionally attract fewer women.
An initiative that aims to improve gender balance in leasing and capital transactions – two of the property industry’s ‘tough spots’ - through finding opportunities to involve women in a meaningful way in all our service engagements.
Ensuring bias is removed from our recruitment decisions and diversity of thought is prioritised.
Our CBRE Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) focuses on how we can drive a more inclusive workforce by creating awareness and understanding in our journey to support reconciliation.
Family Friendly Workplace
Ensuring that parents are supported before, during and after parental leave. Our family friendly policies are reinforced by a Parents Hub which includes a toolkit with resources, tips and tools for both parents and managers and an in-house return to work program.
Building Equality with the LGBTQI+ Community
Making meaningful changes within our workplaces to support our LGBTQI+ people and foster an inclusive environment. Our LGBTQI+ focus was recognised in 2021 when CBRE was awarded Silver status in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) for the 2nd year running.
