Circle of Excellence
Each year our employees are nominated by Senior Leaders and their peers for excellence in their achievements across all service lines and disciplines. This internal award is highly coveted and the result is a week-long adventure of fun with other ‘Circle of Excellence’ winners’ giving you the opportunity to travel and bond with other CBRE employees. This highly esteemed recognition scheme acknowledges those who work hard and deliver exceptional results during the year. CBRE’s ‘Circle of Excellence’ is just one example of an award that is part of a broader reward and recognition program.
At CBRE, we approach our commitment to community service and philanthropy with the same enthusiasm and creativity as we approach our business. CBRE is committed to fulfilling its role as a responsible corporate citizen by continuing to support and add value to the communities within which we work. CBRE’s corporate philanthropy efforts are driven by our dedicated professionals, who have enthusiastically moved our programs forward while widening and diversifying their scope.
Walk For A Wish
Walk for a wish is CBRE’s flagship charity event, which sees staff take part in concurrent 10 kilometre walks through major cities in Asia Pacific. Employees are encouraged to participate in this annual event which continues to grow year on year. In 2014, we raised USD $371,366 across the region as a result of this initiative.
Learning and Development
CBRE is committed to helping employees take charge of their professional development to always be the best in the market. CBRE offer a dedicated Learning platform to all employees and offer training on many areas of the business including; leadership development forums, business line conferences, property industry courses, pitch management training, and best practice client care and development.
We also invest in the latest technology and platforms to ensure our people are always fully informed and have access to our global network.
Diversity is vital to our success as a global company. By actively promoting an inclusive workplace, we strengthen our connection with our employees, clients, suppliers—and the markets we serve.
At CBRE, diversity and inclusion are more than core values—they’re a competitive advantage. By creating an environment where each and every individual is valued for who they are, recognized for their contributions and given the chance to grow, we open our business up to new perspectives and opportunities.
One of our most successful means of fostering diversity and inclusion is through the ongoing support of CBRE employee network groups.

Green Week is an evolution of the highly successful Asia Pacific Green Day event implemented since 2011. Due to the success of this program, the company decided to run it globally and extended the annual event to a full week. Since 2013, CBRE has hosted the Green Week event which demonstrates our company’s commitment to the environment and raises awareness about sustainability issues through the encouragement of environmentally responsible thinking. Offices across the region host a range of activities such as green expos with keynote speakers, ride/walk to work days, no waste lunch days and a Twitter competition, as well as a low print week and no print day.
