CBRE, the world’s leading commercial real estate advisory firm, is improving how we work, creating more rewarding experiences for employees and more effective workplaces for organizations.
When the lease on Northwestern Mutual’s Los Angeles office expired in early 2017, the firm’s leadership saw an opportunity to transform the way it did business. The existing workplace’s technology was outdated, its health and wellness amenities anemic, and its layout a throwback to the days of cubicles and corner offices. To continue to hire—and retain—the best and the brightest in their industry, the company needed to evolve. So, the financial services company partnered with CBRE.
CBRE champions the adoption of workplace wellness in office design with a total of six offices certified and an additional three registered
TORONTO, April 5, 2018 /3BL Media/ – CBRE announces its three Toronto offices have simultaneously achieved WELL Certification at the silver level for New and Existing Interiors by the International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™). Awarded based on IWBI’s WELL Building Standard™ (WELL™), the world’s first building standard to focus on enhancing employees’ health and wellness through the built environment, CBRE is pioneering wellness in workplace design with the most WELL Certified office spaces of any company across the globe.
The built environment, broadly defined, is an interesting, albeit static, subject to photograph. The buildings, the roads, the streetscapes, the very structures themselves don’t change or move. Rather, it is the frenetic activity and connectivity that happens in and throughout these built environments that makes it such a compelling subject.
