Cushman & Wakfield named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation

Grace Wilk • 1/27/2022

CHICAGO - Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK), a leading global real estate services firm, has earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality. In satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria, the firm has been named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality for the fourth consecutive year.

“We are proud to again be recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion makes us a better company, a better competitor and a better corporate citizen,” said Nadine Augusta, Cushman & Wakefield’s Chief Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer. “We will continue to prioritize LGBTQ+ inclusion and ensure that our commitment is felt by all employees throughout our 400 offices around the world.”

Best Places to Work“When the Human Rights Campaign Foundation created the Corporate Equality Index 20 years ago, we dreamed that LGBTQ+ workers—from the factory floor to corporate headquarters, in big cities and small towns—could have access to the policies and benefits needed to thrive and live life authentically,” said Jay Brown, Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Programs, Research and Training. “We are proud that the Corporate Equality Index paved the way to that reality for countless LGBTQ+ workers in America and abroad. But there is still more to do, which is why we are raising the bar yet again to create more equitable workplaces and a better tomorrow for LGBTQ+ workers everywhere.”

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars: non-discrimination policies across business entities; equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families; supporting an inclusive culture; and corporate social responsibility.

“The CEI is an important affirmation of our work to support LGBTQ+ employees as part of our richly diverse workplace culture,” said Holly Tyson, Cushman & Wakefield’s Chief People Officer. “We’re focused on enhancing our workplaces to foster a strong sense of inclusion, engagement and development so our people are empowered to do their best work.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s UNITY employee resource group contributes to advancing the firm’s diversity, equity & inclusion (DEI) strategy and to the success of the business by helping to raise DEI awareness, foster employee engagement and inclusion, and build community and a sense of belonging.

The results of the 2022 CEI showcase how 1,271 U.S.-based companies are promoting LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S. and, for the 56% of CEI-related companies with global operations, advancing the cause of LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces abroad.

In 2002, the first year of the CEI, only 13 companies achieved a top-score. Cushman & Wakefield joins the ranks of over 840 major U.S. businesses that earned top marks this year.
