Here at Kronos, we recently achieved a terrific milestone that we’d been pursuing for a while – we made the list of the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For. This list is based on a combination of survey responses from more than 315,000 employees rating their workplace culture, as well as an extremely detailed culture audit of employee policies, benefits, values, professional development opportunities, recognition programs, communication processes, community involvement, and more.
This type of recognition doesn’t happen by accident. Commenting on this award, our CEO Aron Ain said “Since 2010 we’ve seen more than a 20-point increase in our global employee engagement scores thanks to continuous and focused investments in our people and practices. Over that same time, Kronos global revenue has doubled. That’s not a coincidence. We cannot deliver innovative products or deliver great services to our customers without having great people. Having a culture steeped in trust, transparency, and caring brings out the best in us all, and I’m beyond proud of what our Kronite family accomplishes together every single day.”
That our CEO has this level of belief in the importance of employee experience at Kronos provides support for a wide range of investments that our organization has made to attract great people and to ensure they want to stay and build their careers here. According to the Great Place to Work research of Kronos employees, 94 percent of Kronites are proud to work at Kronos; 96 percent laud the company for great communication; and 95 percent of Kronites agree they have a great boss.
We know that our people managers are critical to our success, and have invested in their development via our Manager Effectiveness Index program. If you are attending the 2018 Great Place to Work Summit in San Francisco March 7-9, you can attend a session by Kronos Chief People Officer David Almeda and Vice President of Talent Management Kim Nugent to learn about how they developed this program.
