Responsibility at Work
Cognizant's most valuable asset? Clearly, it's our talent. So we continually strive to attract, retain and nurture the skilled professionals we need to help our customers adapt to a rapidly changing business landscape.
Our employee development efforts are focused on attracting and retaining top talent, building a diverse workforce, and offering effective talent management programs to bring out the best in our people and cultivate successful careers. We are committed to providing attractive compensation, benefits and working conditions. Additionally, we aim to foster a strong client-first work ethic, in which employees understand that Cognizant stands for professionalism, integrity and a devotion to excellence.
An important focus is workforce diversity - in particular, attracting, developing and promoting qualified female employees. Our "Women Empowered" program emphasizes a collabrative and supportive networking environment for female associates. In early 2013, we also launched a comprehensive diversity and inclusion program, known as Completely Cognizant, which is built upon the pillars of people , culture, clients and community.
We're also committed to continuous learning, so our people can stay current with leading-edge technologies and develop important communication skills. In addition to formal classroom lessons. our online "Cognizant Academy" brings instruction to employees through classroom learning and on their desktops.
