Our ESG Program

UKG Corporate Governance and Accountability

Embedded in our culture is a profound commitment to doing the right thing for our employees, customers, and stakeholders. 

UKG Corporate Governance and Accountability
The UKG culture is an intentional one.

Ours is a culture that values diverse perspectives, actively sacrifices individual preferences in order to benefit the greater good, values transparency and kindness, is adaptive and agile, offers support and opportunities for growth, and relentlessly pursues great outcomes.

We value diverse perspectives with an emphasis on transparency and kindness.

This includes actively working to earn and maintain trust by showing consistency between our words and actions, by being transparent, and by taking personal and collective responsibility for the decisions we make and the outcomes that follow.

2021 Highlights on UKG Corporate Governance and Accountability


  • We established a formal, cross-functional ESG steering committee and leadership team with executive sponsorship and support from key equity partners.

  • We added four new members to our board of directors in the fields of business transformation, diversity and belonging, and workplace productivity.

  • We participated in external ESG audits, including EcoVadis, CDP, and Sedex, to showcase continuous corporate improvement.

  • We invested $530 million in research and development to design innovative products and bolster customer success.
