LinkedIn Names Cognizant a Top Company in the US and India

LinkedIn has named Cognizant a Top Company in both the US and India. Cognizant ranked 33rd of 50 companies in the US and 2nd of 25 companies in India.

  • Skills growth: Looks at how employees across the company are gaining skills while employed at the company, using standardized LinkedIn skills
  • Company stability: Tracks attrition over the past year as well as percentage of employees that stay at the company at least three years
  • External opportunity: Looks at Recruiter outreach across employees at the company
  • Company affinity: Tracks connection volume among employees, controlled for the company size
  • Gender diversity: Measures gender parity within a company and its subsidiaries
  • Educational background: Examines the variety of educational attainment among employees, from no degree up to Ph.D. levels, reflecting a commitment to recruiting a wide range of professionals

“We are happy be named to the LinkedIn Top Companies lists in both India and the US,” said Becky Schmitt, Chief People Officer. “As we transform the companies the world relies on, our people are our difference. We are focused on supporting the many ways our associates can make a positive impact at Cognizant – on their clients, on society, on each another and on their own lives.”
