In many cultures, it is uncomfortable and even offensive to be subjected to any pressure, however subtle, to participate in our colleagues' personal endeavors. Office management may permit an occasional sale of products or solicitation for charitable purposes provided that this activity does not interfere with business operations or put anyone at CBRE under pressure to purchase a product or participate in a program. In addition, requiring any employee to participate in a religious prayer or ritual, whether in or outside the office, is prohibited.
