3 Things You Should Know About Working At UKG
An award-winning culture (even during a merger).
UKG won some big awards for company culture in 2020-2021, which is impressive given the circumstances of the year. The Ultimate Software/Kronos merger was completed during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, and thousands of new co-workers were forced to come together for the first time virtually.
In being named in Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work For" (#6), it was noted that it's rare for merged companies to make the list because major changes tend to drop a company's rating, but UKG was an exception. Great Place to Work noted that UKG committed to no layoffs during the pandemic, added more employees, invested more into its employee benefits, and continued philanthropic efforts.
The company was also recognized on People Magazine's "Companies That Care" list. Prior to the merger, both Ultimate Software and Kronos frequently won awards for their products and company culture.
UKG offers a strong employee benefits package.
UKG tries to offer something for everyone and every circumstance with its diverse employee benefits package.
For health purposes, UKG offers health insurance that covers 100% of the premiums for employees, spouses, domestic partners, and eligible dependents. The company also offers short-term & long-term disability, along with extensive medical coverage for in vitro fertilization (IVF) services and wellness programs.
Employees that work 30+ hours/week are eligible for the company's unlimited personal time off policy.
