Building an Intentional Culture

What merging during a pandemic taught us about HR and ourselves

Flash back to February 2020: the announced unity between Kronos Incorporated and Ultimate Software would mark the first time ever that two organizations on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list would merge.

Mere weeks later, COVID-19 took hold — and this already-unprecedented merger became completely unparalleled.

How do you successfully join two award-winning cultures with 13,000 employees working virtually around the world, all while keeping the business healthy?

In this webinar replay, Sharlyn Lauby, HR Bartender and president at ITM Group, chats with Dave Almeda, UKG’s chief people officer, about the inside story behind merging during a pandemic. He shares how building an intentional culture — with HR playing a strategic role — was the key to UKG’s success.

After watching Building an Intentional Culture, you will:

  • Understand what it means to build an intentional culture shaped by a company’s purpose and business strategy
  • Identify the 10 key areas, or “levers to pull,” to create your aspirational employee experience
  • Develop strategies for bringing your organization’s values and vision to life

Hear how UKG was able to accomplish some remarkable feats under the backdrop of COVID-19 — and how to apply the lessons learned to your own organization.
