Compensation programs competitive with local markets

Cushman & Wakefield’s compensation philosophy is built on four components that guide how we drive behaviour and performance and how we reward employees at all levels throughout the organisation.

Drive Individual Performance

Our pay-for-performance program aligns employee goals and objectives with C&W’s strategic plan. The program incentivizes and rewards employees based on actual, measureable individual performance. Performance goals include both quantitative and qualitative elements.

Maintain Market Reference

Our aim is to offer market competitive pay – which allows us to attract and retain high performing employees and to also motivate behaviours that support the pay-for-performance culture.

Tie to Results

Our pay-for-performance components work together to encourage and reward behaviours that support and drive Cushman & Wakefield’s business goals. Compensation is tied to the attainment of specific, agreed-on individual and business results.

Enhance Global Partnership

At Cushman & Wakefield we look at pay practices across lines of business, at various levels and position types, and in different regions, to ensure equity around the company and around the globe. This global approach simplifies processes, supports fairness and equality, and makes it easier to take advantage of career opportunities around the world.

Global Performance Management Program

Everyone employed at Cushman & Wakefield takes part in our global performance program. This is designed to ensure that we all have realistic and measurable goals which allow us to grow and develop our experiences, knowledge and abilities. Annually, line managers hold formal discussions to review performance and identify areas where we can further assist in our employees’ development.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cushman & Wakefield.


    The interview process felt very rushed. It was more about obtaining information and ideas than interviewing about my skills and experience. Asking specific details relating to my marketing plans and asking to give a new marketing plan on the spot.
