Simply put, sustainability is good business, and vital to our marketplace success. At Cognizant, our internal performance and client satisfaction depend on how we:
Provide what's best for people and the environment.
Conduct our business, employing the highest standards of personal and corporate conduct.

It also helps our performance meet global targets, by guiding how we measure and evaluate the impact of all we do.
Culture & History
Our business culture reflects the fact that we were “born global” as a unit of U.S.-based Dun & Bradstreet with operations based in India.
As a result, we’ve always been multicultural, which has eased our expansion in more and more markets around the world.
Many of our senior managers have extensive international business experience and educational backgrounds. In fact, our CEO was born in Kenya, educated in Asia and the U.S., and has lived throughout the world.
U.S. corporate citizen — a “local” around the world
Although headquartered in the U.S., we continue to enjoy high standing as “local” player and an employer of choice with a strong reputation for excellence in India. As a testament, we consistently garner top recruitment honors at the leading institutes of Technology and Business Management there.
They are the only international services provider with a business model structured both vertically and horizontally. That is, vertically with expertise in almost every major industry segment, as well as horizontally, across a full complement of integrated solutions and services. In fact, many of their senior people originate from the industries in which they work.
