Meet the members of CGI's management
JULIE GODIN - Executive Vice-President, Global Human Resources and Strategic Planning
Julie Godin has led CGI’s global human resources group since 2009 and the company’s strategic planning process since 2011. Reporting to the CEO, she oversees the development of enterprise-wide HR policies, programs and processes and their application across all CGI business units around the world. She is also responsible for CGI’s leadership, organizational development and strategic planning initiatives and programs.
Within CGI, Ms. Godin has contributed to developing global human resources policies, programs and processes, and she oversees their application in business units on a global level. In a company such as CGI, whose main asset is the expertise of its professionals, the functions associated with talent management are at the heart of its strategic development. For this reason, in 2011 Ms. Godin was assigned world-wide responsibility for human resources and strategic planning. Today she manages a team of 1,000 human resources professionals working in 40 countries.
Before joining CGI, Ms. Godin founded Oxygen Corporate Health, a company that manages comprehensive health and wellness programs in the workplace. As CEO, she drove the firm’s strategic planning and growth, overseeing all operations and working closely with major clients that included Bell Canada, Air Transat, and the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Québec. Profitable throughout its five years in operation, Oxygen merged its activities with those of CGI to offer CGI members a complete range of health and wellness services. Ms. Godin successfully led the integration process and oversaw the development of the Oxygen program within CGI.
In 2000, Ms. Godin co-founded Fondation Jeunesse-Vie, a non-profit organization that strives to reduce poverty, promote education and improve the health of children and teens in disadvantaged areas. She is actively involved in the foundation and is also a board member of the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation, Fondation de l’Université de Sherbrooke, and non-profit organization FitSpirit.
Ms. Godin holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the Université de Sherbrooke (1998).
