In response to COVID-19, Ultimate, Kronos, and its people established an Employee Relief Fund to provide financial assistance to people severely impacted by the pandemic, such as employees’ family members who’ve lost their jobs or have incurred expensive medical bills. The fund will continue to support employees and their families during COVID-19, and beyond. The company and its employees have also donated to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy Global COVID-19 Response Fund. In all, company leaders and employees have raised more than $2 million in vital relief for people around the world since April.
Employees have also donated their time and resources during the pandemic, sewing face masks and 3D-printing face shields for frontline workers in the community. They’ve also partnered with local restaurants to deliver thousands of meals to hospitals and first responders in cities around the country, as well as Toronto. With a continued dedication to serving the community, employees have taken advantage of their paid service days to virtually volunteer during COVID-19 and support a variety of non-profit organizations, such as the American Red Cross, United Nations, South Florida Institute on Aging, and Translators without Borders.
