The State of Belonging, Equity, and Impact at UKG

We believe in elevating opportunity for our people, our partners, and our communities. See what we’re doing to champion belonging and inclusion to drive positive change for all.

we believe businesses succeed when all individuals are respected and all voices are heard.

More importantly, employees must have the support and resources necessary to thrive as professionals and people. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B) and Social Impact at UKG focuses on building an inclusive environment where differences are respected, and our innovative spirit is unlocked.

To get there, we must always evolve, stay curious, keep learning, and live our purpose every day as UKG transcends the standard for what it means to be a company where all individuals feel safe and respected, equally valued, and confident that they belong. We drive this unique commitment into our global communities through our strategic social impact initiatives aimed at creating equitable opportunity for all.”

Our DEI&B and Social Impact programs start with making UKG a place where unique identities and perspectives are not only welcomed, but sought out, celebrated, and well-represented. Our work continues as we champion a culture of trust, equity, and belonging for all people and a workplace where all employees have abundant opportunities to grow.

Uniquely You, Uniquely Valued, Uniquely Empowered

At UKG, our purpose is people. We believe when people feel valued and that they belong, their innovative spirit is unlocked and they are empowered to tap into their unique talents for the good of themselves, their team, their company, their customers, and their community. This belief is what drives our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEI&B) and Social Impact strategy.

Strategic Initiatives

Our DEI&B and Social Impact Programs have several strategic initiatives that build upon our pillars.


Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) channel the strength of belonging to benefit not only our employees but also our company and the broader community. These groups, driven by employees, enrich our organizational culture by centering on shared identities, experiences, and allyship. Their tangible, measurable positive impacts are essential to our organization's achievements. ERGs are voluntary, employee-led groups centered around shared characteristics, such as gender, ethnicity, or disability. You don't need to personally identify with or have direct experience related to the group's focus to become a member. We strongly encourage allies to join our ERGs, showing their support for their colleagues and contributing to the spirit of inclusivity.
