Our ESG Program

UKG Social Commitment to People

We believe that we can only achieve business success when we support and empower people.

To bring our people-driven purpose to life, we have established both internal and external programs designed to create an engaging, supportive, and equitable environment for all. We strive to support and empower all people, from employees and customers to investors and partners to the communities we serve around the globe.

Areas of Strategic Focus

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging      
At UKG, the diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) initiative focuses on more than hiring, developing, and retaining a diverse global UKG workforce. We encourage a culture of belonging, fostering an inclusive environment that celebrates differences and maximizes innovation. We know that diversity strengthens leadership teams, and we work every day to continue creating a culture of trust and empowerment.

Talent and Culture       
Our core values and behaviors provide the foundation for building an intentional culture for UKG and ensure we live by “our purpose is people.” UKG invests in initiatives and programs that not only reflect what is most important to us today, but also what we aspire to be in the future, including fostering employee satisfaction, talent recruitment and retention, and company culture.

Customer Satisfaction and Success      
Our spirit of continuous innovation is inspired by a deep understanding of what our customers and their people need most to be happy and thrive. We care deeply about our customers’ satisfaction and long-term success and we build meaningful relationships that evolve with their needs and priorities. We continually invest in our customer experience through customer service, product stewardship, customer lifecycle, and general customer-relationship management.
