Our greatest strength is our people: their expertise and their ability to consistently deliver outstanding work. As a company and an employer, we're committed to continuous learning and giving our associates opportunities to stay current with leading-edge technologies—and to develop communication skills so that they can perform their roles effectively and efficiently.
All learning programs are conducted through Cognizant Academy, our in-house training center. This dedicated center offers many conventional and leading-edge educational programs for employees at all levels.
The four key educational initiatives are:
- Continuing Education offers training on a need-to-know basis and for continuous knowledge and skills upgrading
- Role-based Training
- Executive Training program which includes Effective Personal Productivity Time Management, Acculturation programs, and language programs
- Certification, both external certification programs offered by Microsoft, Sun, PMI, etc., and internal certification programs, such as those focused on IBM WebSphere, DB/2 and software engineering
In addition to internal training programs, we send our software professionals around the world for technology or management-specific training at notable universities and colleges, including Harvard University, Indian Institute of Management, and the Indian Institute of Technology.
We use conventional and leading-edge learning methodologies. In addition to the formal learning in classrooms, Cognizant Academy takes learning to our employees' desktops. We use multi-modal learning, as well as Technology-Based Training (TBT) material.
