Kronos Incorporated and Ultimate Software recently announced plans to rebrand the company. The combined company’s new name will be UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), effective October 1, 2020. Driven by the organization’s new tagline, “Our purpose is people,” the new UKG name builds on the strengths of Ultimate Software and Kronos and signals a shared focus on assisting workforces and businesses across the globe. This announcement comes on the heels of Kronos and Ultimate Software’s definitive merger agreement.
Before the merger, Kronos’ HCM software provided an end-to-end employee lifecycle management solution, and because workforce needs are constantly changing, Kronos solutions are designed to evolve with you to help meet the challenges you face every day, regardless of your industry or where you do business. Designed for small and medium-sized businesses, Kronos HCM solutions help organizations increase employee engagement for stronger business results.
Additionally, Ultimate Software’s UltiPro HCM software suite provides businesses under 1,000 employees with full visibility of the entire employee lifecycle from recruiting to retirement. UltiPro HCM can be scaled to meet the demands of businesses of different sizes in a number of different industries and is able to reduce administrative workloads by automating all of the company’s HR processes.
In a press statement, Aron Ain, CEO of the joint company, said, “our new brand, UKG, truly unites Ultimate Software and Kronos, both as a business and as people. Our new brand is rooted in our combined passion and history of focusing on people at work. We believe the UKG brand represents our continued commitment to our employees, customers, and their employees — while at the same time giving us a modern new identity for our future together as one organization. Separately, Ultimate and Kronos have proven that remarkable cultures led by inspired people drive success, and now we are together as UKG, one company with people at our core.”
UKG will bring together each company’s award-winning solutions, including Workforce Dimensions, Workforce Ready, and UltiPro HCM and HR service delivery solutions.
