UKG recognized as a Best Workplace in Canada 2021

UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group) has been recognised by Great Place to Work as the No. 12 Best Workplace in Canada 2021.

An industry leader in HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions, UKG has long been considered an employer of choice across the nation. And, just one year after UKG’s merger of Ultimate Software and Kronos Incorporated, the organization is already achieving greatness.

“Being named a Best Workplace in Canada is just a bit sweeter this year, having celebrated our one-year anniversary as a combined company under UKG, and reflecting on the unprecedented challenges all organizations faced as a result of the global pandemic,” added Aron Ain, chairman and CEO of UKG.

With a tagline like ‘Our Purpose is People’, it's no surprise to see UKG on the prestigious list. The company has a long-standing reputation for putting employees first – as was seen in their response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. From the off, UKG established an Employee Relief Fund to support families adversely affected by the pandemic. Furthermore, UKG increased their benefits offerings by $35 million in 2021 – including 100% company-paid healthcare premiums and a 45% dollar-for-dollar match on all employee 401(k)/RRSP contributions.

“We’ve worked tirelessly, in partnership with all employees around the globe, to build upon the great cultures of the past and to solidify a best-in-class culture for UKG, rooted in its passion for people and the desire to innovate,” continued Ain. “Today, we celebrate this honor with our Canadian employees and continue to look to the future.”
