Cognizant strives to be a great place to work and build a career. We focus on maintaining—and continually enhancing—leading-edge programs to attract and cultivate talent, promote diversity and ensure a safe and healthy workplace.
As a business whose primary asset is the talent of our people, Cognizant’s employee development efforts are focused on attracting and retaining talented individuals, building a diverse workforce and offering effective programs to advance 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 passion for excellence.
Diversity and inclusion are keystones of our business. Our diversity and inclusion principles are unified in a platform called Completely Cognizant, built upon four pillars: People, Culture, Clients and Community. Another key diversity program, Women Empowered, aims to attract, develop and promote qualified female employees. In addition, we have organized or are in the process of creating programs for such affinity groups as veterans and the Asian-Pacific, Hispanic/Latino, African-American and LGBT communities.
We're also committed to continuous learning, so our employees can stay current with the latest technologies and develop important leadership skills. Our award-winning learning and professional development arm, Cognizant Academy, offers a broad curriculum tailored to the needs of employees at various stages of their careers.
Recently, we expanded our employee health and safety initiatives, including the largest employee health screening program in India’s IT industry and our Wellness First campaign to encourage better nutrition and other healthy practices.OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY
