Cognizant Named A Top Employer in Canada and Portugal by LinkedIn

April 19, 2023 – Today, Cognizant was recognized as a top employer in Canada and Portugal in LinkedIn’s annual ranking of top companies. This is the second year in a row that Cognizant has been highlighted as leading company in Canada.

The LinkedIn Top Companies list analyzed the actions of millions of LinkedIn members to rank the top workplaces for professionals to grow their careers. There are seven pillars, each revealing an important element of career progression within a company, and all pillars are based on LinkedIn data: the ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity, and educational background.

“This prestigious recognition validates Cognizant’s commitment to investing in its people,” said Becky Schmitt, Chief People Officer at Cognizant. “In the past year, we have expanded our award-winning learning and development ecosystem; accelerated career velocity by encouraging job moves every two years; enhanced benefits and leave in many countries, including Canada; and implemented a variety of programs to highlight diversity and promote from within. We are honored that LinkedIn is recognizing Cognizant amongst its top companies once again.”
