LOS ANGELES—A year after implementing Workplace 360, CBRE announces that 90% of employees prefer the environment to a traditional office space. Workplace 360, for the unfamiliar, is an open floor plan and hoteling-style office format that incorporates high technology and a paperless work environment. The design won CBRE a Digie Award earlier this year. The program was launched last year when CBRE moved into a new office space in Downtown Los Angeles. Now, CBRE has surveyed its employees to understand how they feel about the space a year later.

“This survey really communicates how quickly our people have adapted.  The technology in place of the paper is one of the most recognizable pieces of evidence to indicate the acceptance level among our employees,” Lew Horne, CBRE’s Los Angeles and Orange County president, tells GlobeSt.com. “In fact, a top executive from a large firm recently toured our space and was in awe by the lack of paper and the changed culture of the space. It’s interesting to see it through the eyes of those who have never been here before.”
