While most companies have a vision and mission, CGI goes a step beyond. We have a company dream:
To create an environment in which we enjoy working together and, as owners, contribute to building a company we can be proud of.
Since our founding, this dream has emphasized the principles of enjoyment and ownership. We strive to create an environment in which our professionals enjoy working together and feel empowered as owners to participate in the life and development of their company. This, in turn, leads to rewarding careers.
Our vision and mission
CGI’s vision centers on being the best for our clients:
To be a global world class end-to-end and business consulting services leader helping our clients succeed.
Our mission emphasizes our client commitment:
To help our clients succeed through outstanding quality, competence and objectivity, providing thought leadership and delivering the best services and solutions to fully satisfy client objectives in information technology, business processes, and management. In all we do, we are guided by our Dream, living by our Values to foster trusted relationships and meet our commitments now and in the future.
Our ownership culture
We view our professionals as company owners, and this ownership mentality is woven into all aspects of our management approach. It’s why CGI professionals are called “members.” Most of our members are shareholders, and all have the freedom to drive their careers, make decisions in the best interests of clients, take part in the continuous improvement of our business, and benefit from a job well done.
CGI’s six core values define our business philosophy and principles. They’re more than just values; they’re a way of life. Our values guide our daily decisions and interactions, helping to ensure we serve our stakeholders—clients, members and shareholders—with excellence while building trust, confidence and long-term partnerships.
Partnership and quality
For us, partnership and quality are both a philosophy and a way of life. We constantly deepen our understanding of our clients' business and we develop and follow the best management practices. We entrench these approaches into client relationship and service delivery frameworks in order to foster long term and strong partnerships with our clients. We listen to our clients and we are committed to their total satisfaction in everything we do.
Objectivity and integrity
We exercise the highest degree of independent thinking in selecting the products, services and solutions we recommend to clients. In doing so, we adhere to the highest degree of quality, objectivity and integrity. We do not accept any remuneration from suppliers. We always act honestly and ethically. We never seek to gain undue advantages and we avoid conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived.
Intrapreneurship and sharing
Our collective success is based on our competence, commitment and enthusiasm. We promote a culture of innovation and initiative where we are empowered with a sense of ownership in supporting clients, thus ensuring our profitable growth. Through teamwork, sharing our know-how and expertise across our global operations, we bring the best of CGI to our clients. As members, we share in the value we create through equity ownership and profit participation.
In all we do, we are respectful of our fellow members, clients, business partners and competitors. As a global company, we recognize the richness that diversity brings to the company and welcome this diversity while embracing the overall CGI business culture.
We strive to deliver strong, consistent financial performance which sustains long term growth and benefits both members and shareholders. Financial strength enables us to continuously invest in our members' professional development, our services and our business solutions to the benefit of our clients. To this end, we manage our business to generate industry superior returns.
Corporate social responsibility
Our business model is designed to ensure that we are close to our clients and communities. As members, we embrace our responsibilities to contribute to the continuous improvement of the economic, social and environmental well-being of the communities in which we live and work.
