Our purpose, vision and values guide us

Our purpose, vision and values guide us


At Cognizant, we are a high-performing team with heart.

Our diverse community of 300,000+ people are working together to help transform the companies the world relies on. And when we’re not developing game-changing digital solutions for clients, we’re improving lives elsewhere by volunteering in local communities, fostering inclusion through our employee affinity groups and so much more.
Our team is as high-caliber as it is humble, caring and supportive of one another. We believe that continuous improvement is the catalyst for growth and innovation, and we offer the flexibility, support and opportunities all levels of associates need to take their lives and careers to new places.
Every day, all around the world, our people engineer impact―with their clients, communities, colleagues and their own lives. 


We engineer modern businesses to improve everyday life.


Every choice we make aligns to our vision: to become the pre-eminent technology services partner to the world’s top companies.


Our values form the bedrock of our culture and define how we work together to serve our stakeholders.

I apply my expertise to gain trust, and lead our clients forward.

Seek data, build knowledge

Always strive, never settle

I act with agility and creativity, determined to stay one step ahead.

Work as one

I deliver ideas that draw upon the full power and scale of Cognizant.

Create conditions for everyone to thrive

I include, enable and invest in everyone around me.

Do the right thing, the right way

I always make the ethical choice.
