The share purchase plan reflects the company's philosophy of “intrapreneurship” making it easy for members to invest in the company and profit from its success. Through payroll deductions, members may contribute a percentage of their annual base salary, to a maximum based on their job category. CGI matches these contributions dollar for dollar.
