Our ESG Program
Environmental, Social, and Governance at UKG
Our ESG program serves to coordinate and optimize activities we manage in support of our beliefs, identify opportunities to grow and strengthen our commitments and demonstrate the positive impacts we make through measurable progress and tangible results.
At UKG, we firmly believe in doing right by doing good — for our employees, our customers, and our communities. When people feel valued, that their job has meaning, and that they belong, their innovative and engaged spirit is unlocked and they’re empowered to tap into their unique talents for the good of others.

Our ESG Priorities
UKG conducts a biennial global materiality assessment to remain focused on the most impactful areas related to our business operations, employees, communities, and the environment. UKG developed our first set of ESG targets, aligned with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) where we are best positioned to contribute. These forward-thinking targets are ambitious but realistic, and we have held ourselves accountable to progress to, achieve, and/or surpass each pillar in a timely manner.
Awards and Recognition
While we never take any action solely for the recognition, UKG is proud to have earned a number of recent awards for our ESG efforts, including a Silver EcoVadis Sustainability Rating.
