There is a deliberate policy at CGL to foster talent and use people's strengths to meet its clients' needs. As a result, CGL has been recognised as an Outstanding Company by The Sunday Times Best 100 Companies. When you join CGL, you will have a buddy to guide you in the early months - no matter what stage you are at in your career.

The Award demonstrates how the company makes individuals feel valued: a recent initiative uses Strengthscope to recognise and develop every individual's talent outside their technical skillset.
