Taking care of our members
We strive to ensure our members’ work/life balance is protected. Our specialist networks, well-being programme and competitive benefits focus on keeping our members inspired, engaged and rewarded.
At CGI, you are a member – not just an employee – so we go the extra mile to look after you and your family. In fact, we want you to feel part of the family, comfortable in bringing your whole self to work in a place where your work/life balance is respected. We will always work with you to ensure you can thrive in both environments, and that's not a benefit, it's a promise.
As a CGI member, you have access to a very competitive pension, where you can choose from a core contribution of 2%, up to 8% of your salary. We contribute up to 10% to your plan dependent on the contribution level you choose.
Share Purchase Plan (SPP)
Our SPP enables you to purchase CGI shares on a monthly basis. We will match your contributions up to a maximum of 3% of your salary.
Profit participation plan
You’ll participate in the rewards that come from our growth. This plan distributes a portion of our profits based on the achievement of our financial objectives, as well as individual performance.
Member discount scheme
We give you access to savings from hundreds of retailers all year round.
We offer all of our members a variety of insurance packages, including travel, income protection, life assurance and more.
Oxygen is our health and well-being programme, which raises awareness and offers support for all our UK members. It focuses on mental health, ergonomic issues and health risks.
Member Assistant Programme (MAP)
MAP offers you and your family free and confidential psychological counselling and support services for personal or professional challenges.
Medical and dental cover
You can opt for a range of medical and dental coverage to suit your individual or family needs as part of our flexible benefits package.
Cycle to work scheme
Are you going to commute to work by bike? If so, we can help you to fund a new bike through our flexible benefits package.
We give you 25 days of annual leave, plus bank holidays. However, you also can buy or sell up to five days leave to suit your needs.
Every CGI office has a location champion team. They organise fun events including Bake Offs, lunchtime board games, cinema trips and more.
Sports and Social Club (SSC)
For £5 a month, you can join our SSC, which organises social events. These can be anything from silent discos to chilled-out cinema nights, so there is something for everyone. If you are sporty, there is also a range of activities and teams you can join.
Bringing your whole-self to work
One of our additional social benefits focuses around enabling your experience at CGI to be as authentic as you are. Diversity is central to who we are and that’s why we have specialist networks which are here to make you feel at home from your first day and encourage you to tell us what kind of company you’d like us to be. Below is an overview of some of our networks which you will be welcome and encouraged to join from day one.
Our Women’s Network offers a platform for members to recognise and celebrate each other’s achievements, giving them the chance to empower and support each other at work and beyond.
LGBT+ Network and allies
The LGBT+ network is open to all members and subcontractors who identify as LGBT+ and allies. We support and represent members from all minority sexual orientations and gender identities.
Parental Support Community
The Parental Support Community (PSC) is a community for members who are pregnant, on maternity/shared parental/adoption leave, or have returned to work following parental leave. The PSC aims to provide members with an information and support source and help everyone returning to re-integrate and build their confidence.
A platform for members to empower and support those of minority ethnicities within our offices and to celebrate various cultures within CGI.
The Capability Network aims to create positive and open communication surrounding disabilities. We aim to connect members of all capabilities and create a space to share ideas, experiences and advice.
One of our key leadership principles is for leaders to recognise 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 programmes such as:
The builders award
Honouring members whose behaviours and actions demonstrate leadership, and whose contributions, over time, have helped generate outstanding value for our stakeholders.
Seniority recognition programme
Celebrating milestone career anniversaries and thanking members for their contributions.
APPLAUD peer-to-peer e-recognition platform
Using our internal intranet to highlight fellow members who exemplify our values.
In addition, business units sponsor numerous programmes at a local level to recognise achievement and thank fellow colleagues for a job well done.
We also greatly value our members’ input and their satisfaction in the workplace. We believe that
– through listening to our members – we can build even stronger relationships, which is why we designed two annual programmes to do just that:
This annual consultation solicits suggestions from members on how to better serve our clients and grow our business.
Member satisfaction programme
Our members regularly meet one-to-one with their manager to discuss their satisfaction and how to improve it.
