‘Giving Back’ is integral to our culture and Cushman & Wakefield is proud of the huge amount its staff do to give back to local communities. In recent years a few examples include: raising well needed funds for LandAid and picking up a World Record in the process with our Cushopoly challenge; our graduates went as far as Tokyo to raise around 5k for Schools Around the World; and our green fingered Birmingham team created a garden in aid of injured military personnel.
More recently in 2018 our London Markets team raised over £150,000 for XLP and Back-Up Trust when 100 colleagues kayaked 13 miles from Tottenham Hale to Paddington Basin, and in Scotland the annual Rob Worboys Challenge raised £36,500 for Cardiac Risk and The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice after 100 colleagues cycled 57 miles around the Isle of Arran.
Many of our people support fantastic causes for example by taking part in the ‘Reading in Schools’ programme; youth mentoring; working with the homeless and achieving amazing sporting feats in aid of their chosen charities. In recognition of this fantastic contribution and to give everyone an opportunity to make an impact toward something they are passionate about, Cushman & Wakefield staff are given 1 day’s paid leave to undertake a charitable activity, and any money raised for charity Cushman & Wakefield will match.
