“As Cushman &Wakefield continues to grow, one of our top priorities is continuing to ensure that ethical and legal business practices are instilled in our operations across the firm. Since becoming a public company, we’ve put in place additional policies and standards into our existing ethics and compliance framework to meet the demands of our stakeholders, and to continue to protect our people, clients, shareholders and reputation as a leader in the industry.” Maria D’Avanzo Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer
Reporting misconduct We encourage a culture where employees are empowered to speak up to address potential breaches of compliance or expected ethical conduct. We urge employees to report concerns and do not tolerate acts of retaliation against those who do. Confidential reports can be made to local management, a regional legal or compliance officer, human resources managers or through our global 24/7 multilingual Ethics Hotline.
