Additional Culture Details
At CGI, our people come first. We call our employees members to reinforce that all who join CGI are part of a collaborative team of owners empowered to drive the business and share in the rewards that come from building a world-class company. Our members are given a say in the management of CGI through the member focused processes outlined as part of our Management Foundation frame, called the Member Partner Management Framework (MPMF). The framework was founded on a simple and original idea we call the CGI dream: “To create an environment in which we enjoy working together and, as owners, contribute to building a company we can be proud of.”
To quantify the success of the MPMF, we operate a measurement program we believe is unique in the industry. While many companies conduct anonymous employee satisfaction surveys, our experience is that this alone loses the quality dialogue of a small company. Therefore, we have established a practice where members interact with managers and conduct “their performance review of the company” before taking CGI’s member satisfaction survey, called the Member Satisfaction Assessment Program (MSAP).
Our members are well connected with management and are involved in the decision-making processes through different forums. One such forum, called the Voice of the Member Survey, provides members the ability to comment on a wide variety of topics and initiatives from CGI’s strategic direction, client interactions and career development.
