LOWELL, Mass., and WESTON, Fla., May 13, 2021 — UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global provider of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management solutions, has ranked #1 on The Best Places to Work in Mexico 2021 list by Great Place to Work – and in a new list this year, ranked #2 on The Best Workplaces in Challenging Times.
“This is an incredible achievement and I am very proud that UKG has been recognized as the #1 best place to work in Mexico,” said Aron Ain, chairman and CEO, UKG. Our entire team in Latin America have demonstrated their commitment, passion, and inspiration through the quality of their work. I believe that our culture of trust, transparency, and overcommunication helped us achieve this great honor.”
UKG celebrates this achievement just one year after its merger, having received the #2 spot in Mexico as Kronos Incorporated for the last two years, consecutively.
UKG and its employees are closely connected to a globally aligned framework of carefully selected values and behaviors that shape every component of its evolving culture — from benefits to performance to its brand promise, “Our purpose is people.”
“After such a challenging year in 2020, we are thrilled to be named the #1 best place to work in Mexico and the #2 best workplace in challenging times,” said Gabriel Alvarado, vice president and general manager, Latin America and Caribbean, UKG. “We will continue to put people at the center of everything we do and focus on offering the best experience and programs that positively impact our employees and their families, so that our customers continue to receive the best and most innovative service in the industry. We are a company focused on people and that is reflected in the solutions we provide, and this award is a true testament of what putting people first looks like.”
During a tumultuous year for all organizations, UKG kept true to its values by establishing an Employee Relief Fund at the onset of the pandemic to support employees whose immediate family members have been adversely impacted by COVID-19 and other unforeseen disasters. Moreover, the company’s newly expanded benefits package for all employees in Mexico includes 100%-company-paid healthcare premiums for them and their financial dependents, incorporating free-union and same-sex couples.
The Best Places to Work in Mexico 2021 list is compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee-driven, according to two criteria: the Trust Index survey results represent 67% of the organization’s final score for the ranking and the Culture Audit results are considered for participation in the rankings and special lists representing 33% of the score. This provides a rigorous representation of the organization from the employees’ perspective and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data regarding five dimensions of trust-building: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
