Kronite Quotes Pulled by Fortune from the Great Place to Work Trust Index© Survey
- “I joined Kronos later in my career after working for 25 years at another company. I have been pleased with the opportunity I’ve had to grow and develop in ways that I never had at my former company. The work is rich and the intent behind it is pure. Kronos has an excellent executive leadership team who genuinely cares about the people that work here — not just what they do while they are here, but for the whole person. That is rare in my opinion.”
- “I feel empowered, supported, and ‘community-like’ more than any other company I’ve worked for. I am a younger employee, with less experience, but I feel my voice is heard and I’m given fantastic opportunities.”
- Dave Almeda, chief people officer, Kronos
“We continue to be humbled by the ever-growing list of global accolades that prove what Kronites around the world already know: Kronos is a special place where our culture of caring and innovation drives success for employees, their teams, and, in turn, our customers. Thanks to Kronites everywhere for bringing their passion for innovation to work every day and continually sharing open and honest feedback so we can make this special place even better.”
- Michael Bush, chief executive officer, Great Place to Work
“The Best Workplaces in Technology know that innovation can’t be limited to just engineers or senior employees. Creating opportunities where everyone experiences innovation in the workplace increases the sense of fairness, purpose, and confidence.”
