‘Giving Back’ has to be integral to our culture and Cushman & Wakefield is proud of the huge amount its staff do to give back to local communities. Last year a few examples included: 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. This year will see the opening of a new study centre at the Gladesmore Community school in Tottenham made possible by the 100K funds we raised through our 7 Towers in 7 Hours fund raising event.
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.
We also have our own registered charity, Schools Around the World (SATW) which aims to help widen the horizons of young people (11-25 year olds) whose opportunities are limited by their domestic, social or financial circumstances. SATW aims to give these young people opportunities for improved education, help nurture their aspirations and promote their personal growth. To learn more visit www.satwdonate.org
