CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd, world’s leading real estate consulting firm, organized its fourth edition of ‘Walk For A Wish’ initiative in association with Muskaan and Sense International, NGOs working towards training specially-abled. Fostering a culture of giving with CBRE foundation, ‘Walk for A Wish’ aims to create an inclusive ecosystem for individuals with special needs.
The walkathon was flagged off by Mr. Amit Khatri (IAS), District Commissioner, Gurgaon and Anshuman Magazine, Chairman and CEO, India, South East Asia, Middle East and Africa, CBRE. The initiative aims at creating equal and inclusive opportunities for people with special abilities and raise awareness around other humanitarian issues. In an effort to promote an inclusive ecosystem for the specially-abled, CBRE also invited employees, clients and partners from across Delhi-NCR, and had more than 500 people participating in the walk, including students from Muskaan and Sense India.
Understanding the current scenario where the number of specially abled people working in the corporate sector are currently increasing, CBRE is constantly working towards sensitizing the society and help recognize the capabilities.
CBRE’s RISE Values – Respect, Integrity, Service and Excellence – are the foundation upon which the organization has been built. These values are timeless and transcend all markets, service lines, languages and business cultures. Over the last decade, funds raised from “Walk for a Wish” have changed lives in communities across regions and going forward, the initiative will continue to play a deeper role in the societies where we live, work and play.
Steering conversations for creating career opportunities, CBRE had employed two individuals – Mukund Ganjoo and Sidhant Kasera – with Intellectual Disability. In their roles, they are responsible for Data Entry and Data Management in the Marketing Department. They have now become an integral part of the team and have won hearts at CBRE.
In addition to this, as part of its CSR initiatives, the company also introduced “Ek Pehal”, an initiative aimed at bringing positive changes in the lives of migrant workers and their families at various locations. As part of its larger objective of giving back to the society, the company will be collaborating with charitable organizations that are working towards the community upliftment.
