At its virtual Connections meeting, UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global supplier of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and employee management technologies, launched Life-work Technology to its clients. Recognizing the interconnected nature of life and work, UKG Life-work Technology fulfills the company’s pledge by putting individuals and HCM technology together in novel ways to assist companies in supporting and guiding employees on their personal life-work journeys.
Cecile Alper-Leroux, vice president of products and creativity at UKG, said, “This is an entirely new vision for developing business HCM strategies, factoring in people’s desires and interests, empowering them to function in a way that respects their lives and empowers them to succeed both at work and in life.”
UKG’s Life-work Technology strategy lets people succeed by identifying what motivates them to do their best work. It does it by combining a clear knowledge of people, their work histories, and goals with holistic evidence on their work habits, efficiencies, and attitudes.
“We develop technologies to address the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s workforces, working to eradicate implicit prejudice and ensure usability through our software suite,” said UKG’s chief technology officer, John Machado. “Over the last year, we’ve launched a number of things that are meant to make a difference in people’s lives, regardless of where they are in their career.”
The UKG life-work vision has caught the attention of HCM market experts. “UKG’s technologies offer global workforce interactions that embody the relationship between life and work today,” according to Forrester. “UKG’s distinct vision is to help organizations look past the employee perspective and reflect on people’s Life-work Journeys,” according to the report.
“Through our product technologies and our ‘our aim is people’ ethos, UKG responds to the need for substantive engagement between technology and people,” said Aron Ain, chairman, and CEO of UKG. “Throughout our heritage, we have prioritized our staff and clients, and we are proud to bring the spirit to life in our solutions.”
