Joyce Maroney, director of The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated, welcomes Aron Ain, CEO of Kronos, on The Workforce Institute Radio podcast series to hear a C-level view of how employee engagement, a winning workplace culture, and strong HR leadership can be strategic weapons for today’s organizations.

Ain, who has served as Kronos CEO since 2005, has seen the workforce management solutions provider cross the $1 billion revenue threshold as employee engagement scores have rocketed from the low 60 percentile to 84 percent during his tenure. On the podcast, Ain discusses:

  • The company’s conscious decision to build HR into a strategic partner while investing in employee engagement as a competitive differentiator;
  • His feelings on the ‘inconsistent’ views of other C-level executives about the link between workplace culture and business success;
  • Tactics used by Kronos executives, people managers, and HR to stay in tune with employees to ensure the company remains a desired place to work as it continues to grow at a rapid pace;
  • The critical role people managers and their everyday interactions play in an organization’s workplace culture;
  • How the act of ‘exposing reality’ can help organizations build a better workplace culture; and
  • The three most important things a CEO must do to drive success.
