Guided by our dream

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 serves as the inspiration for our actions.

There are three fundamental aspects to our Dream:

  • Creating an environment in which we enjoy working together: We assemble and retain, all around the world, extraordinary women and men who share this Dream and who thrive on working as a team.
  • As Owners: We are shareholders of CGI; it is "our" company; we participate in its growth and development and we nurture an ownership mentality.
  • Contribute to building a company we can be proud of: We participate in building a highly ethical company, one that reflects our aspirations and where pride comes from the satisfaction of our clients, our members, our shareholders, and from the communities in which we live and work.

Driven by our vision

Our Vision defines where we, CGI members, want to grow as a team by assisting our clients where they are. We are driven...

To be a global world class end-to-end IT and business consulting services leader helping our clients succeed.

This Vision is our overarching strategic goal. It is complemented by five specific strategic goals to be a company recognized by...

  • Our clients as their partner of choice for our commitment to their success and for our track record of outstanding delivery;
  • Our clients as their expert of choice for the depth of our experience in their industry sectors and our knowledge in information technology;
  • Our members as an empowering environment in which to build a career and a company we can be proud of;
  • Our shareholders as a well-managed, financially strong company providing superior returns; and Our communities as a caring and responsible corporate citizen.

By embracing the company's Values, CGI members share the same sense of high ethics and enthusiasm to partner with our clients in delivering high-quality services, working together as intrapreneurs and ambassadors, creating value for our stakeholders (our clients, members and shareholders) and improving the well-being of the communities in which we live and work.
