Synapse is giving one million workers an edge on tomorrow.

Our Synapse initiative ushers in a new tier of employees, trained to leap forward with cutting-edge technologies like generative AI, Cognizant’s premier tech services and skills needed to fill jobs of the future.  

With a goal of training more than one million individuals by 2026, we are working with governments, academic institutions, businesses and strategic partners to create pathways to success that may otherwise be unreachable for many.

Join us as we work to train and shape the future of the world’s workforce.

Readying tomorrow’s workforce

Our Accelerator program is training 200,000 jobseekers to perform high-demand tech skills. Candidates complete online courses and assessments and get experience working with top clients in major industries. High performers are then shortlisted for specialized train-to-hire programs or job interviews with Cognizant or a Synapse partner.

Driving community impact

By reaching out to universities, community colleges and workforce development groups, we support thousands of entry-level and mid-career professionals as apprentices in the US and UK training on emerging technologies. Partnering with a new employer consortium, Cognizant is building a talent pipeline service that enhances workers’ skills and drives community impact.
