23 Apr, 2008, Madrid
Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) is the best property consultancy to work for in Spain, according to the Great Place to Work 2008 ranking.
In the Spanish edition of the ranking, which the Great Place to Work Institute has drawn up annually for over two decades in around 30 countries, the Institute has taken into account the responses of more than 100,000 people from companies across all sectors. The results are based on five fundamental characteristics that a best workplace must have: credibility, respect, fair treatment, pride and a sense of camaraderie. For the first time, 50 companies form the ranking in Spain, rather than 30 as in previous editions.
For ease of comparison, the Institute has divided the 50 best companies into five categories
according to the number of employees.
Roger Cooke, Head of the Spanish operations of Cushman & Wakefield, said: “It is very important to be in this ranking, especially in times of general economic uncertainty. One of our daily targets is to ensure that people who work within our firm feel motivated to do what they do and have the security of knowing that they are working for a prestigious and serious company.”
Cushman & Wakefield opened its offices in Spain almost 20 years ago. Currently, over 140
employees work for Cushman & Wakefield in offices located in Madrid and Barcelona. Last
year, C&W Spain completed more than 500 transactions, advised on more than €1.35mn of
