Charity

As a leading worldwide business, we understand that our responsibilities lie not only within the company but that they also extend to the wider community. Across the whole of CBRE we have implemented ways for our employees to contribute both their time and money to charitable giving, in the UK and internationally.

 

As a leading worldwide business, we understand that our responsibilities lie not only within the company but that they also extend to the wider community. Across the whole of CBRE we have implemented ways for our employees to contribute both their time and money to charitable giving, in the UK and internationally.

In 2006, CBRE founded its own philanthropy programme, encompassing charitable activities in every area and at every level of the business, locally, nationally and globally. CBRE Cares was established with the motto ‘Leading with heart’ to demonstrate that we take our charitable work seriously. Whilst we have larger company initiatives we also go to great lengths to inspire personal efforts and contributions from all members of staff.

 

We actively encourage employee fundraising by allowing time off work and making financial contributions to their specific causes. Examples of recent employee fundraising include: volunteering at Haven House Children’s Hospice, Hope Challenge, London to Amsterdam Cycle Ride and the Lifeline for Lifeboats Challenge.

We also offer all of our employees the opportunity to participate in the UK’s largest payroll giving scheme ‘Give As You Earn’. This initiative allows staff to select their charity of choice and make donations, directly from their pre-tax salaries. We also annually run pro-active campaigns to encourage further participation in this scheme.

It is our aim to harness some of the considerable energy that our people invest in their working lives and put it to use for the greater good.
