Oct 15, 2021 | News

Falls Church, VA — Cognosante is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® for the second year in a row. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Cognosante. This year, the company scored 26 points higher than the average U.S. company for employees who rated their workplace as a great place to work.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation.

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Cognosante is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”

“We are delighted our employees view Cognosante as a Great Place to Work for the second year in a row,” said Jennifer Bailey, Cognosante’s Chief Administration Officer. “Our employees are talented, mission-driven, passionate individuals who are central to the company’s success. By creating a positive workplace experience, they can do their best work, which in turn benefits our customers and their constituents. To know employees rated Cognosante at over 90% for measures like fairness, safety, and inclusion means that we are doing just that.”

Cognosante’s leadership prioritizes culture-building programs that attract and retain a diverse workforce. With the goal to expand impact and bolster inclusion across the business, Cognosante implemented new employee-focused initiatives to highlight stellar performance, promote diversity, and maintain employee wellbeing.

This year the company introduced the High Five award, which recognizes program teams who achieve high scores for customer satisfaction. It also launched the VIPS Excellence Award, an acronym for Cognosante’s core values of Value, Innovation, Performance, and Sharing, to acknowledge individuals who live and exemplify the company’s core values. Cognosante also continues to lead Corporate Social Responsibility efforts which invest in employee-nominated nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting equality in the areas where employees live and work.

Bailey concluded, “In addition to our Core Values, our Founder and CEO, Michele Kang, expects a culture of inclusion, fairness, transparency, respect, and community outreach. Her dedication to creating an environment with these attributes and corporate values is why we are a Great Place to Work certified company two years in a row. Our survey results demonstrate our employees are proud to work for the amazing organization she created. I could not be prouder of this organization as we continue to support the health, safety, and well-being of Americans who serve the nation and help those who need it most.”
