What Is Host?

Workplace Experience services provided by talented CBRE “hosts” with world-class customer service training and certification – Host People; and a powerful, enterprise-grade technology platform – Host Technology

Host People

Trained using our proprietary method, the Host team sets the tone for employee experience, making the moments that matter, better.

Host Technology

An experience platform that connects the employee to the environments, amenities and communities that matter the most.

What is Host?

Host’s scalable product suite includes concierge-quality services provided by talented CBRE “hosts”; world-class customer service training and certification; and a powerful, enterprise-grade technology platform.

The Host mission is to increase individual well-being, personal productivity and organizational effectiveness through people-led, technology-enabled services. Put simply: our goal is to help people work smarter and delight in doing it.

Host People

The all-important “front-of-house” Host team that sets the tone for employee experience. Hosts are responsible for creating a supportive and comfortable atmosphere; welcoming visitors; and acting as air-traffic control for all employee-facing services (reception, IT support, meetings and events).

Host People

We know how to delight. Today, CBRE serves the workplaces of more than 20M people; with 2,000 team members deployed around the world in roles ranging from reception, AV support, mail clerk, and more, who create and support exceptional experiences.

Host People

Facilities Management is the foundation of employee experience. While employee needs are usually expressed to front-of-house teams, solutions often involve back-of-house functions. CBRE’s broader Facility Management and Property Management teams run seamlessly in the background, allowing our Hosts to focus on delighting employees.

Host People

Host’s product suite focuses on two core people-focused services:<br><br><ul><li>Placing exceptionally talent Hosts on-site, in our client’s offices, and letting them work their magic, and</li><br><br><li>Making them even better through a world-class hospitality training and certification program, the Host Method, for CBRE or clients’ in-house “front of house” staff</li></ul>
