UKG Receives Three Prestigious Awards for Inclusive Culture Valuing All People, Generations, Teams

UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM), payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions, announced it earned three separate awards for its diverse, inclusive culture built to serve and care for all individuals. Recent accolades include ranking #6 on the IDG Insider Pro and Computerworld Best Places to Work in IT list, receiving a perfect score of 100% on Disability:IN’s Disability Equality Index, and earning a spot on the Best Workplaces for Millennials list created by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine.

“Since the very first day we merged, we committed to building an intentional culture that would work for all people and align with our strategy for who we want to be as UKG,” said Dave Almeda, chief people officer at UKG. “We strive to care for our people and their families at every turn — no matter who they are, where they live and work, or what they do — because it’s the right thing to do, and because it makes us a better partner to our customers.”

Disability:IN Disability Equality Index

Considered the most comprehensive disability-inclusion assessment tool in the United States, the Disability Equality Index grades companies on the merits of their policies, programs, and practices for hiring, including, and serving people with disabilities across the business. UKG has implemented several new accessibility measures, from workplace improvements to product enhancements across its solutions, to better serve all employees, customers, partners, and visitors every day.

In May, UKG announced the hiring of Brian Reaves, who joined the organization as its chief belonging, diversity, and equity officer. Reaves leads the company’s global belonging, diversity, and equity efforts, expanding existing initiatives at UKG while working to strengthen a culture built on trust, fairness, and equality, so all people can thrive in their careers.

“We are proud to be recognized as a company leading the way in accessibility practices, but we know our work is never complete in this vital area,” said Reaves. “UKG will continue to reevaluate and enhance our programs and practices as necessary, to ensure we are serving all individuals, of every ability.”

Best Workplaces for Millennials

The Fortune Best Workplaces for Millennials list recognizes companies with high-trust cultures offering fulfilling and meaningful work, abundant opportunities for career development, extraordinary benefits, and positive experiences. List results are based primarily on survey feedback from employees across industries.

The ranking follows UKG earning the #6 spot on Fortune magazine’s and Great Place to Work’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2021 list in April. The historic ranking marks the first time a company has appeared on the prestigious 100 Best list in its first year as a merged entity.

“I want to congratulate all U Krewers on these remarkable achievements. Thank you, thank you, thank you for always helping one another and putting others’ needs first in all you do,” said Aron Ain, chairman and CEO at UKG. “We’ve only just started out on our journey to becoming the company UKG is destined to be, and taking care of our people and empowering them to be their best is the magic behind building better products and delivering better services for UKG customers all over the world.”
