Our People

Core to Our Success

As stewards of our OneCF culture, it’s our people who drive our business by living our Purpose and acting on our Values. That’s why we continue to make significant efforts to support employee engagement and evolve our OneCF culture by investing in inclusion and well-being. When we focus on inclusion, we see our diversity, and we continue to make people and culture our competitive advantage. We’re also committed to sustaining our position as a Global Top 25% Most Engaged Company, and are working to become a Global Top 25% Most Inclusive Company.

Inclusion & Well-Being

Data is key for guiding our Inclusion & Diversity journey - both employee data and external benchmarks. Data helps us determine meaningful commitments, gauge our progress, and address actual versus assumed barriers to inclusion and diversity. For diversity to flourish, our OneCF culture needs to be inclusive, where every employee feels confident in bringing their authentic selves to work and empowered to make an impact that matters. When employees feel included they are 19 times more likely to be engaged as well as feel more positive about their well-being.

Values & OneCF Culture

Inclusion & Well-being at CF is anchored into our Values and One CF Culture. Our Values guide our behaviours, and contribute to positive, purposeful experiences for employees, clients, partners, shoppers and the community. They also shape our award-winning OneCF Culture and help realize our strategic objectives.

Achievers Elite 8 Winner

As the pandemic evolved, we deployed resources and critical information to support our people as we navigated uncertainty. CF’s COVID-19 Resource Centre served as a hub of timely, curated information on a wide range of topics, from stress management during self-isolation to the transition to remote work. Realizing the added professional and personal pressures on our teams, we also reinforced 24/7 access to the company’s confidential Employee Assistance Program.

Investing in the Next Generation of Commercial Real Estate Professionals

Our Early Talent program is one way for CF to build a vibrant pipeline of future commercial real estate leaders. This three-year rotational program recruits recent university graduates and equips them with a diverse, unique set of industry experiences as well as exposure to our OneCF culture. This investment includes our sponsorship of the Peter Sharpe Awards, which recognizes and supports students with clear academic achievement and financial need and who are enrolled in Real Estate Management at the Ted Rogers School of Management.

Together in Wellness

Our Together in Wellness experiences connect employees with information and resources to support their fitness and well-being, including everything from speaker series with industry experts and physical challenges to weekly tips and giveaways. We also introduced permanent additions to our well-being programs, which include a well-being day for employees to take a day away from work to disconnect, catch one’s breath and invest in some self-care, as well as tripling our paramedical coverage to support our employees and their families on an ongoing basis.
