Earning recognition for top-echelon employee engagement, international workforce management software and services firm Kronos Inc. of Chelmsford, Massachusetts recently revealed its receipt of the 2017 Seal of Distinction from WorldatWork, an HR and compensation expert.
Kronos strives to help companies engage employees; optimize labor expenses; increase productivity, and lower compliance risk according to its website. Only seven companies in Massachusetts and 160 businesses total earned the honor, which WorldatWork has been awarding to firms for the past five years in acknowledgement of meeting or exceeding industry standards across several strata.
The company prides itself on its “WorkInspired” culture, promoting an atmosphere of inspiration and innovation, according to its website, while simultaneously supporting work-life balance. Calling its own “Kronites,” it even publicizes its policy of welcoming back “alumni” to rejoin the company after working elsewhere.
“It’s simply a great time to be a Kronite, and an especially thrilling time to work in human resources at a company like ours,” Chief People Officer David Almeda said. “Ensuring Kronos is a great place to work is one of our company’s strategic directives each year, meaning [that] we put resources behind new benefits, health and wellness, people development, and manager effectiveness to ensure Kronites around the world continue to work inspired for each other and our customers.”
WorldatWork is based in Scottsdale, Arizona and Washington, D.C. Its president and CEO, Anne Ruddy, noted that 2017 saw the highest number of applicants for the Seal of Distinction since its 2012 inception.
