Kronos Incorporated today announced it has received its highest-ever ranking as a Best Place to Work in Australia from Great Place to Work®, continuing to climb the country’s list for the fourth-consecutive year.

News Facts

  • Kronos ranked 12th in its category on the annual 50 Best Places to Work in Australia list, continuing its yearly ascent from no. 20 in 2016, no. 17 in 2017, and no. 13 in 2018.
  • The Best Places to Work in Australia study surveyed more than 85,000 Australian employees across 160-plus companies to make the final list, which is based on direct and anonymous employee feedback from the Great Place to Work Trust Index© survey combined with a detailed culture audit of employee benefits, company values, professional development opportunities, recognition programs, communication processes, and community involvement.
    • The Best Places to Work Trust Index employee survey revealed that 93% of Kronites in Australia are proud they work at Kronos; 97% feel employees are treated fairly regardless of their race or ethnicity; and 93% feel that management is honest and ethical in business practices.
    • Kronos was specifically highlighted for its innovative Manager Effectiveness Index (MEI) initiative, which encourages leadership development, open communication, and strengthening of the employee-manager relationship across the company based on a bi-annual assessment of each people manager completed by the people who report to them.
  • This honor comes on the heels of other impressive wins in the Asia-Pacific region, including being named a Best Multinational Workplace in Asia for the second year; among India’s Best Workplaces for Women in its inaugural list; one of only 33 companies in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan to make the Best Place to Work in Greater China list; and a Best Workplace in India for the second time and a Best Company to Work for in the Technology and BPM category for the fifth time.
