News Facts

  • Kronos was one of 160 organizations honored with a 2017 WorldatWork Seal of Distinction, and one of only seven organizations recognized in the state of Massachusetts, where the company is headquartered.
  • Begun in 2012, the prestigious Seal of Distinction is awarded to companies that meet defined standards of workplace programs, policies, and practices weighted on several factors, such as the complexity of implementation, required organizational resources, perceived breadth of access, and overall level of commitment from leadership. Applicants are evaluated on 17 different aspects, including Health and Wellness; Performance Management; Recognition; Development Opportunities; Culture Initiatives and Community Involvement; Base Pay; and Workplace Flexibility.
  • While Kronos continues to receive third-party validation from across the world for its award-winning WorkInspired culture, the company remains vigilant to identify new programs, innovative benefits, and unique career development opportunities for employees and people managers to support and engage Kronites.
    • This continued dedication to being a great place to work has paid off: According to Kronos’  most recent global employee engagement survey administered by CEB and taken by nearly 90 percent of Kronites worldwide, 100 percent of engagement attributes improved over a six-month period – including overall employee engagement rising from 84 to 87 percent, which is far above industry standards for global IT organizations.
