  • Aron Ain, chief executive officer, Kronos
    “It was never on my bucket list to write a book – yet based on the overwhelming reaction to continually tell the story behind our growth, I’m so grateful that I did. I tell anyone who will listen that the magic behind our success as a global software leader rests with the incredible people who call themselves Kronites. We cannot do these remarkable things without the dedication we have to each other, our business, our customers, and our communities. If other organizations can learn from what we’ve built together at Kronos, then I’ll be humbled to know we helped make the working world a better – and more successful – place.”
