Kronos Employee Quotes
- “What makes Kronos unique is the encouragement, openness, and empowerment to allow team members to innovate. [Kronites] are encouraged to work on side projects to improve processes and/or tools which improve efficiencies across the board.”
- “Our benefits are great, our pay is great, and our work is challenging and rewarding. Kronos continues to deliver innovative products that customers and prospects love, and continues to be a leader…all made possible because of the employees and the extraordinary leaders that choose to work here. Quite simply: From the highest levels of the company, Kronos knows that…employees make a company successful, and every day Kronos shows [us] how much we are trusted, valued, and appreciated.”
- “We have the very best of the best – in every role. In every function. I have never encountered such a high degree of excellence in every position around me, from support, to engineering, to operations. All 100% top notch. I am proud to be part of such an excellent team.”
- “Leadership truly embraces myTime, encouraging employees to take time off when and where they need it. It is not like other companies who offer unlimited time off but then do not let employees use it. Kronos tracks employee time off (with our own workforce management software, which is awesome!) so it can ensure employees are taking MORE time off under myTime than when we used accrued PTO.”
- Dave Almeda, chief people officer, Kronos
“The passion, character, dedication, and extraordinary competence of our employees remains our biggest competitive advantage. It’s certainly humbling that Kronites around the world consistently rate our benefits, HR policies, work practices, and office spaces high, but it’s the caring people who call themselves Kronites that make Kronos an extra special place to work. Our promise is to always focus on making our workplace culture a strategic focus, ensuring every Kronite has a great manager, and making certain that their work is professionally fulfilling and clearly connected to company-wide priorities.”
- Michael Bush, chief executive officer, Great Place to Work
“The companies featured on the 2019 Best Workplaces in Technology list offer dynamic, flexible, and transparent workplaces. These companies create cultures that invite all employees to innovate, creating a competitive edge for their businesses and helping to realize the unique potential of each individual.”
