Los Angeles, March 19, 2015 – CBRE Group, Inc. today announced it has been named to the Companies That Care Honor Roll for the eighth consecutive year. Companies on the 2015 Honor Roll have demonstrated socially responsible workplace practices and active community involvement, as determined by Center for Companies That Care, a national, not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the well-being of employees, families and communities. CBRE is the only commercial real estate services firm on the list.
“We applaud the Honor Roll employers – such as CBRE – for consistently considering the possible human toll when making business decisions and sustaining individuals, families, and communities. Preparing employees for career fulfillment with on-the-job learning, tuition reimbursement, and online courses; recognizing employees’ contributions; encouraging healthy lifestyles by offering wellness and financial literacy programs; and encouraging volunteerism are all examples of what these stellar employers do every day,” said Marci Koblenz, Co-founder and President of Center for Companies That Care.
Honor Roll employers are selected for their adherence to all 10 Characteristics of socially responsible employers. CBRE, like the other companies named to the list, excels in the 10 Characteristics inherent to a “Company That Cares,” which include: sustaining a work environment founded on dignity and respect for all employees; developing great leaders, at all levels; establishing standards for ethical behavior and integrity; and getting involved in community endeavors and/or public policy.
“It is a great honor to be listed on our eighth consecutive Companies that Care Honor Roll,” said Joe Hudson, Senior Vice President, Americas HR. “CBRE is proud to be recognized as a company that demonstrates commitment to creating a workplace that truly supports our employees.”
Each March, the Honor Roll is announced in conjunction with the launch of CAREDAYS, an annual month-long, national initiative to address a significant societal issue. CAREDAYS: Terrific Tales supports childhood literacy by increasing children’s easy access to engaging books. Individuals and organizations are encouraged to either donate books or raise funds to purchase books for 1000 under-resources classrooms. Any donation resulting in children reading fluently by third grade will change lives and those of future generations.
