How we bring value to our clients everyday
Cognizant's team members embrace a well-established set of cultural values.
Transparency: We Succeed Through Open Exchange of Information. Cognizant is built on a foundation of open and honest communication. We believe the only way to ensure success for our clients and ourselves is to operate in a fully transparent manner. We encourage associates to listen to ideas and share feedback that can make us a better, stronger, more able company.
Passion: We Have a Collective Can-Do Attitude, with the Enthusiasm and Commitment to Go the Extra Mile. Everything we do at Cognizant we do with passion—for our clients, our communities and our organization. Each associate has the drive and commitment to do whatever it takes to help our customers succeed and we apply that passion to help sustain our communities and our environment.
Empowerment: Figure Out How to Get Things Done and Make Them Happen. We deﬁne ourselves by our ability to deliver results. That means taking the initiative to ﬁnd new ways to get the job done. We encourage end-to-end ownership, responsibility, accountability and recognition. Cognizant is entrepreneurial and fast-growing, offering numerous opportunities to shape our roles and our careers.
Collaboration: Work Together to Achieve a Common Goal. A cornerstone of Cognizant's success is the interconnectivity of our associates and teams across business units. We believe that the better we share knowledge and work together, the more we can achieve for our clients and ourselves.
Customer Focus: The Customer is Our True North. Our customers’ delight powers our success and exceeding customer expectations is our belief. No matter how big or small a project is, it will be delivered with the highest quality. Every associate knows that the customer is why we are here and that we place unwavering focus on customer satisfaction.
Integrity: We Act with Integrity in Every Decision We Make. We never compromise on integrity and we take every decision accordingly. Integrity means doing the right things, always. Integrity also means that we treat our colleagues and clients with respect and value their opinions.
Long in development, augmented reality is now poised to remake experiences in our personal and work lives. Although the technology is decades old — i.e., the first head-mounted display was invented in 1968 — recent investments in and proliferation of augmented, virtual and “mixed-reality” applications have skyrocketed.
Whether it’s used to help electric utilities install and optimize wind turbines, or bring smiles to the elderly in dreary nursing homes, early adopters are using AR to orchestrate the future of both work and play. And when you consider the massive bets being placed on augmented and virtual reality by technology visionaries such as Facebook, Microsoft, Apple and Google, it’s clear the AR future is imminent.
Cognizant adheres to the highest standards of conduct in managing our business and serving our clients around the world.
Our commitment to our customers, employees, shareholders and society is to act with integrity at all times. This guides everything we do—the way we serve our clients and the work we do to help them build better businesses. We believe it is critical to maintain the highest ethical standards. All company employees follow not only those policies set forth by our clients, but also Cognizant’s comprehensive, strictly-enforced Core Values & Code of Ethics.
- In a highly competitive industry, everyone at Cognizant recognizes that it is our reputation, the behavior of our people and the quality of our work that determines whether or not customers decide to work with us—and stay with us.
- At Cognizant we do not cut corners, bend the rules or look for shortcuts. And we have a zero tolerance policy towards those who do.
- Whether our Associates work in a development center, on-site with our customers, in our corporate office or elsewhere, each one of us recognizes the importance of handling our clients’ systems, confidential information or sensitive intellectual property with the utmost care.
- We are proud of our visa program and appreciate the Department of Labor’s public recognition of our meticulous compliance with the rules.
- We go above and beyond the required standards and aggressively challenge ourselves to maintain a level of compliance that is the best of any employer in our industry.
- We fully believe you cannot succeed in business without adhering to the law. Global laws and their implementation can be challenging, but that is never an excuse to do the wrong thing.
