News Facts

  • Great Place to Work honored Kronos in Canada for two distinctions; Best Workplaces in Quebec, which recognizes companies whose employees not only have a great workplace experience, but also enjoy great business results – and for the second time, Best Workplaces for Inclusion in Canada based on direct and anonymous employee feedback from the Great Place to Work Trust Index© survey.
    • Eligibility for both honors entails companies being certified as a Great Place to Work, and at least 90 percent of employees must agree they are treated fairly, regardless of role at the company as well as personal characteristics including gender, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation.
    • Great Place to Work selected the Best Workplaces for Inclusion based on employee responses to inclusion-related Trust Index statements as well as an organization’s workplace programs and practices that support inclusion.
    • Great Place to Work highlighted that winning companies in Best Workplaces in Quebec such as Kronos are addressing challenges facing the Quebec labor market including the skills shortage, work-life balance for all, creative development, inclusion, and a high-trust environment.
  • For the third consecutive year, the Montréal Gazette named Kronos one of “Montréal’s Top Employers” as part of the national Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition.

    • Employers were compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
    • Kronos was recognized by the Montreal Gazette specifically for its unlimited paid time off policy (myTime) that covers vacation, sick time, volunteering, and general life maintenance; its corporate culture of caring, built around family and work-life balance; as well as its belief that every employee deserves a great manager thorough its Manager Effectiveness Index initiative and Kronos Courage to Lead awards program worldwide.
