Cushman & Wakefield makes it to Poland’s first-ever list of the best employers for diversity and inclusion in Poland
Global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has been included in the list of leading companies in Diversity IN Check, a survey conducted by Responsible Business Forum and partner organisations, which has revealed organisations with the highest level of maturity in terms of diversity management and building an inclusive organisation.
Diversity IN Check is a tool of Responsible Business Forum, the coordinator of the Diversity Charter. It consists of two parts: a survey and a list to diagnose the maturity of employers in building inclusive organisations and managing diversity. The questionnaire-based survey addresses five areas: management fundamentals, programmes and activities, building engagement, result indicators and additional activities related to COVID-19. Cushman & Wakefield is among 31 companies with the highest level of maturity.
Diversity is not a theoretical value for us, it is a signpost that guides us in our everyday actions and decisions that build our organisational culture. Every day we can make an impact by choosing what behaviours and attitudes we reinforce while putting partnership and respect first, irrespective of position, gender, age, sexual orientation or opinions. We are delighted that our activities have been recognised and we have joined the list of the best employers for diversity and inclusion in Poland – says Anna Trochim, Head of HR, Cushman & Wakefield.
Cushman & Wakefield offers its employees a vast array of training and workshop opportunities. The firm organises workshops and personal coaching sessions for leaders as part of its project OneCushwake: Master Mind. Its global initiative Women’s Integrated Network (WIN) includes a series of lectures and a mentorship programme supporting women in their professional development at Cushman & Wakefield. It also addresses health promotion. The firm’s internal programme CushwakeCares offers weekly meetings on various health issues. Its employees can participate in a range of classes and activities such as sleeping well workshops, spine strengthening exercises, mindfulness workshops and practice, and webinars with experts. The company also provides free psychological support. Its Employee Assistance Fund has provided financial support for those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic: USD 71,071 was disbursed to more than 3,500 staff globally.
Last year, Cushman & Wakefield also reviewed its employee benefits. The new package comprises workshops, courses, trainings, hobby clubs, Multisport cards, “delicious benefit”, a remote work model and overall wellbeing that includes healthcare, life insurance and an Employee Pension Scheme.
The organiser of Diversity IN Check is Responsible Business Forum, the coordinator of the Polish Diversity Charter and the largest NGO in Poland addressing the concept of corporate social responsibility in a comprehensive manner, and with the longest tradition in the country, operating since 2000. The Forum is an expert organisation that initiates and partners in key activities for the Polish CSR.
