Medical and Dental Plans

CBRE provides employees with flex dollars to choose from three medical plan options. CBRE also offers a range of dental coverage. There are no deductibles with the dental plans, and each plan includes lower out-of-pocket expenses, lower monthly premiums and the convenience of “no claim forms.” All dental plans provide for orthodontic treatment.

Vision Plan

Vision Plan coverage is offered through extended health care plans.

Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a confidential, company-paid assessment and referral program that provides CBRE employees and members of their household with professional counseling and referral services.

Primary Caregiver Family Plan

CBRE supports employees and their important role in the family. We know that balancing family and a career is a challenge, so we have developed a program that provides both salaried and commissioned employees with supplemental income for 12 weeks when they become a new parent. In addition, CBRE has increased the allowance for fertility treatments for employees and/or eligible dependents who need a little help getting a family started.

Vitality Wellness Program

This program provides employees with solutions, activities, information and incentives to help them make healthy choices and optimizes care and resources for those with serious health needs or concerns.

Eligibility for this benefit depends on your employee status.

Vacation is available to full-time employees based on years of service as outlined below. In addition, employees are eligible for three paid personal and five paid sick days on an annual basis (pro-rated, if necessary).
