Corporate and Workplace Solutions (CWS)

Delivers solutions that maximize the efficiency and productivity of our people.

What We Do

Corporate and Workplace Solutions touches every single person at the firm, right down to when our people flash their IDs to come into the building, to the physical building, to the chair they’re sitting in, to when they go down to the cafeteria. The remit of our team is to make sure every single one of those things is done in a professional and safe manner where people feel very connected to the organization. Our team is also responsible for the environmental, social and governance efforts in our facilities, communities and supply chain, from managing our carbon emissions to our spend with diverse suppliers. We strive to build great work solutions and experiences.
