We pride ourselves on being known as a responsible company, where we pull together as a friendly team, helping all our members to bring their whole selves to work.

Oxygen is CGI’s award winning health and wellbeing program that provides global, regional, and local initiatives to support our members in understanding the importance of their mental and physical health and to take steps towards improving their general wellbeing. Initiatives include annual health screening, and online health questionnaires. We also have a Wellbeing Thought for the Week and hold a monthly webinar to promote discussions around some topics that may be more difficult to talk about such as the effects of stress, menopause, and cancer.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental health support is crucial for creating a safe and healthy work environment, something we are truly passionate about. That is why we have trained around 250 of our members as Mental Health First Aiders, equipped with the skills to recognise when peers may be struggling with ill mental health and the tools to listen, reassure and signpost to other support systems such as our extensive Member Assistance Program.

Walk Around the World

Over 70,000 CGI members from around the world are invited to take a pause from their day-to-day routines to benefit from the mental and physical health benefits of walking and to connect with one another and the communities we serve.
