The mission of the TECDP is to support the professional development needs of associates and talent requirements of Cigna IT by providing challenging assignments, structured training, and mentoring through a committed partnership between individual associates, program management and the IT organization.

 

Associates will gain valuable IT and business skills through their program experience in either full-time program track: rotational or technical. The rotational program focuses on broad development, providing associates a total of three unique roles, each approximately one year in length, giving diverse knowledge of Cigna IT. Rotational assignments include a variety of IT positions. The technical track focuses on deep development in a technology function or specific area of IT, approximately three years in length, while increasing complexity and scope of the role while in the program. TECDP Associates begin to shape their career path through their experiences, program support, and discussions with program buddies, co-workers, peers, and mentors.

 

Information is at the core of Cigna's strategy. Providing high quality information to our customers, providers, and employers is critical to our success. TECDP recruits and develops employees to help support our mission and manage Cigna's information.
