UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions, has been named to India’s Best Companies to Work For 2021 list by Great Place to Work and The Economic Times.
“I’m so proud of the U Krewers in India, as they’ve shown incredible resiliency and tenacity during this particularly tough time for their country and the world,” said Aron Ain, chairman and CEO of UKG. “Today, we celebrate the global UKG culture of putting people first as we continue to care for our employees and their families, our customers, our partners, and our communities.”
UKG and its employees are closely connected to a globally aligned framework of carefully selected values and behaviours — united, kind, and growing — that shape every component of its evolving culture, including its brand promise of “Our purpose is people.”
During a tumultuous year for all organisations, UKG kept true to its values by establishing a global Employee Relief Fund at the onset of the pandemic to support employees whose immediate family members have been adversely impacted by COVID-19 and other unforeseen disasters. Moreover, the company’s newly expanded benefits package for all employees in India includes 100%-company-paid healthcare premiums for them and their financial dependents, incorporating free-union and same-sex couples.
“During a year like no other, dealing with challenges like no other, and during a merger like no other, to be named among India’s Best Companies to Work For is an honour we hold dear,” said Sumeet Doshi, country manager, India, at UKG. “U Krewers in India have faced incredibly tough challenges during the pandemic and UKG has supported them every step of the way with financial, physical, and mental wellness programmes. This honour speaks to the efforts taken and values which guide us all each and every day.”
