News Facts

  • The Best Places to Work in IT by Computerworld and Insider Pro is an annual ranking of the top 100 work environments for technology professionals. In its second year submitting for the honor, Kronos moved up to No. 2 for midsize organizations (1,001 - 4,999 U.S. employees).
    • The list is compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training, and retention combined with extensive, anonymous surveys of IT workers to determine the organizations that provide challenging, strategic, and rewarding work.
  • On top of managing the company’s information security, network and systems architecture, web and digital presence, productivity tools for employees, and global IT support, the IT team at Kronos continues to play a strategic role in technology selection, process, and implementation directly tied to the company’s journey to be a global SaaS leader and its award-winning customer experience (CX).
  • Additionally, based on a separate employee survey process and questionnaire completed before the two companies merged on April 1, 2020, Ultimate Software was named the No. 1 Best Place to Work in IT for the fourth time by Computerworld and Insider Pro in the large organization category.
    • In 2020 alone, Kronos and Ultimate have been named several times to the same employer of choice list based on separate, independent submissions – including Best Workplaces in Technology from Fortuneand Great Place to Work®; Best Workplaces in Canada; and the preeminent Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list – as proof of two remarkable cultures coming together to form one of the world’s most innovative and inspiring human capital management (HCM) and workforce management companies.
