All of us at Kronos were delighted to learn today that our CEO, Aron Ain, has been named by Glassdoor as one of the top 20 CEOs in the US. Among CEOs recognized in the U.S. at large companies, Aron has an impressive 96 percent approval rating based on anonymous and voluntary reviews from Kronos employees on Glassdoor throughout the past year.
Aron celebrated his 10th year as Kronos CEO in October of 2015. Since he became CEO in 2005, Kronos has grown from $518.7 million to $1.1 billion in annual revenue, has expanded its worldwide employee base from 2,900 to more than 4,800 Kronites, and employee engagement scores have risen sharply from low 60 percent in 2010 to more than 84 percent today, with more than 90 percent of Kronites saying they are proud to work for the company. This combination of extraordinary business results and an employee friendly culture is tough to pull off.
It’s not a coincidence that Kronos has earned a lot of recognition of best places to work-related award wins from around the world for Kronos, including its second consecutive America’s Best Employers ranking by Forbes, Kronos again being named a Top Place to Work by The Boston Globe, and most recently being listed as a Best Workplace in Canada by The Globe and Mail. The culture here that creates engaged and happy employees starts from the top. Aron not only says that talent is our most important asset, he makes people feel that way in every interaction he has with them. Many Kronos employees can tell you stories of his expressions of appreciation for their work and for themselves as human beings. Aron finishes most gatherings of Kronites by asking us to thank our families on his behalf.
If you’d like to get a better sense for the man himself, you can listen to this podcast interview with him that I did in April where we talk about the importance of culture and what CEO’s can do to create a culture that makes people want to come to work everyday.
