CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) has been awarded the H. Bruce Russell Global Innovator’s Award from CoreNet Global, the world’s premier association for corporate real estate professionals, economic developers and service providers. CBRE, in partnership with Delos(R), was recognized for the innovative design of its Downtown Los Angeles corporate headquarters office, which is the first office in the world to be WELL CertifiedTM by the International Well Building Institute.

The Global Innovator’s Award recognizes excellence and innovation in corporate real estate. Since 2000, the award has honored “game changers” in the commercial real estate industry – those individuals and companies whose work, ideas and best practices elevate the practice of corporate real estate.

The CBRE corporate headquarters office features more than 50 wellness designs and elements within these categories, including: circadian rhythm lighting, hydration stations, live plants, exercise promotion, sit/stand work stations and desks built atop treadmills.

Wellness is a core component of CBRE’s global “Workplace360″ workplace strategy initiative, which has been implemented in more than 20 offices around the world. Designed to optimize the health, wellness and productivity of its occupants, each office features a balance of private and collaborative workspaces designed to support the way employees work through enhanced flexibility, mobility, technology, productivity and wellness.

“The office is a place where people spend a lot of their time, and by investing in employees-and especially in their health and well-being-companies will be better positioned to win the war for talent, and better able to make their employees truly productive,” said Lenny Beaudoin, Senior Managing Director for Workplace Strategy at CBRE, who accepted the award on CBRE’s behalf, along with Beth Moore, Workplace Strategy Director, CBRE, at the CoreNet Global North American Summit in Washington, DC.

“CBRE has set a new standard for healthy office space and its global corporate headquarters serves as a great example of how health and wellness can change the way people work,” said Paul Scialla, Delos Founder and CEO.
