CGI works hard to support women in tech. For example, we’ve set up a support network where women can talk about developments in the industry, and where they can connect with leaders across the business. We’re actively involved in industry events that promote women in IT and engineering. From personal experience, I know that CGI has supported my own career development every step of the way.
As a growing, global business, there are bags of opportunity at CGI. I have had the opportunity to work across a wide variety of sectors during my time here, bringing the latest technology to clients, addressing real business needs. There is also a genuine commitment to share ideas and knowledge between members. The culture here is like no other.
At CGI, we view our professionals as company owners, and our aim is for every member to reap the benefits of ownership. Two key ways CGI members are rewarded as owners are through CGI’s share purchase and profit participation plans.
- Share Purchase Plan
A set percentage of your salary can be invested in CGI shares, and CGI matches your contribution dollar for dollar, up to a set maximum.
- Profit Participation Plan
You’ll participate in the rewards that come from CGI's growth. This plan distributes a portion of our profits based on the achievement of CGI’s financial objectives, as well as individual performance.
We believe in building strong relationships with members through listening. Two annual programs designed to help us do just that include the following:
- Member Satisfaction Assessment Program
You’ll regularly meet one-on-one with your manager to discuss your satisfaction and how to improve it.
- Member Consultation
This annual consultation solicits suggestions from members on how to better serve our clients and grow our business.
One of CGI’s key leadership principles is for leaders to recognize the value of others and give credit for their team members' accomplishments. We celebrate and reward the contributions of our colleagues through a variety of global programs such as:
The Builders Award
Seniority Recognition Program
APPLAUD peer-to-peer e-recognition platform
In addition, business units sponsor numerous programs at the local level to recognize achievement and thank fellow colleagues for a job well done.
