Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Building an Inclusive Environment for All People

At UKG
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) at UKG focuses on building an inclusive environment where differences are respected, and our innovative spirit is unlocked.

Brian Reaves

"Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging are being woven into the fabric of UKG. Creating a truly inclusive workplace requires continually adapting to the needs of our unique team and providing the resources necessary so our employees, customers, and communities can grow and thrive."

Our DEI&B programs include foundational learning to mitigate bias, partnerships to build a diverse talent pipeline and maximize impact, accountability through goals and scorecard metrics, and actively making a difference at UKG and in our communities  through participation in diverse employee resource groups.

Uniquely You, Uniquely Valued

Uniquely valuing our employees, customers, and partners helps us realize our corporate purpose. DEI&B at UKG starts with making our company 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, and a workplace where all U Krewers have abundant opportunities to grow. To be a true leader in DEI&B and empower our employees and customers to thrive, we must also drive positive change by investing in and partnering with organizations that work to build a diverse and inclusive future.
