We’re the UK entity of a global organisation with a focus on people, a strong entrepreneurial spirit and a leader in digital transformation, committed to using our skills to help businesses and society address the impact of the digital revolution.
At Capgemini, we are committed to making a step change; for us, inclusion starts with everyone, from the way we conduct ourselves to how we engage with others. Everyone has a role to play in this culture change. Our focus is on driving action through engagement – from altering processes to inspiring everyday individual changes. We are proud that strong leadership commitment is driving our Actively Inclusive culture, putting respect at the very heart of it. Our leaders are dedicated to supporting initiatives that champion individuality and promote open, honest conversation, underpinned by transparent reporting and measurement.

Our employee networks enable people to come together to share their experiences, connect and support others. From our Race and Equality Network, to Women@CapgeminiUK, OUTfront (LGBT ), CAPability (disability, carers and mental health) and our Veterans Employee Resource Group: everyone is welcomed and able to join our networks. Our network communities play a hugely important role in helping us all to do or take one action to promote inclusion.
Capgemini’s Relaunch Programme is aimed at anyone who has taken a career break of between 18 months to 10 years for whatever reason. Talented professionals are supported back into the business by providing a tailored 6-month programme to help refresh and update existing skills as well as developing confidence. Bringing a Returner into the business provides a fresh way of attracting experienced talent that may otherwise have felt unemployable having been away from the workforce for a period of time. It’s a great way to tap into a pool of underutilised skilled people.
The Programme will provide:

Learning and development isn’t just a box we tick. We’re here to develop talent and future-proof your skills. That’s why we take an approach where you’re encouraged to learn on-the-job and take advantage of all the support and education available to grow and stretch yourself, not just once a year but every single day. Through our innovative digital learning platform ‘Next’, industry leading programmes like Harvard Connected Manager, talent development programmes like Future Leaders, and through structured approach to on-the-job learning. At Capgemini we follow a holistic approach to learning, guided by our one size fits one approach.
Getting the work-life balance right is important to us and our people and flexible working has always been a big part how we work. It’s one of the reasons we offer industry-leading digital tools and local flexible arrangements supported by our internal hybrid working charter. We recognise and respect different work patterns and home/life situations. If you want to create the paths and ways of working that work for you and your clients, we’ll support you.
Together, we’re a resilient, agile team. Wellbeing is our top priority, and we work hard to alleviate the challenges we all face as we navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The way we do business has a big impact on our people, society and the planet. That’s why we constantly look for new ways to do the right thing and make a positive difference. Here are some of the steps we’ve taken so far:
• Capgemini is committed to be carbon neutral by 2025 and be a net zero business by 2030.
• We’re a founding member of Race to Zero, a global campaign that’s working to bring together businesses, cities, regions and investors for a healthy zero carbon recovery.
• Our employees receive two volunteer days every year to use their skills and help upskill those in need.
• Working in partnership with CodeYourFuture, we have created new pathways into employment for refugees, asylum seekers and people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Almost 100 students have already benefited from our support and we’re committed to expanding CodeYourFuture across London, Birmingham and Manchester.
• We’ve supported The Prince’s Trust for over 20 years, through fundraising, dedicated courses, and volunteering: we mentor young people, run facilitated sessions, build skills and raise aspirations.
As well as our extensive range of tailored benefits, we also pride ourselves on the policies which support the families of our employees at Capgemini.
We feel it’s crucial that all our employment policies are designed with our people in mind, so we work in collaboration with our employees whenever we are designing or revising our people policies to ensure the lived experience of Capgemini’s employees is included. Our benefits include:
o Maternity Leave: enhanced maternity pay
o Adoption Leave
o Work/ Life Harmony
There are various employee network groups providing support for our employees within each business unit at Capgemini, for example our Women at Capgemini Group.
My year’s maternity break unexpectedly turned into an 11 year break away from Capgemini where I immersed myself in full time parenthood and all that entails. A friend recommended the Relaunch programme to me and sent me the date of the next Relaunch event. I went along without any expectations but came away keen to join having found a role I was really interested in. The coaching we received at the event and the resources on the Relaunch website really helped with the interview. As part of the Relaunch programme, for 6 months, we are given regular coaching sessions, covering work life balance, prioritizing, goal setting and the ways in which you talk about yourself and communicate to leadership and colleagues. I have been really grateful for this. It’s made returning to work such a positive process – I am so glad I took the plunge!
