LOWELL, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kronos Incorporated today announced that it has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the 100 Best Places to Work across all U.S. companies. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees who provide anonymous feedback on their jobs, work environments, and companies via Glassdoor’s online review system.
- Out of approximately 35 million employee reviews on 700,000 different companies, Kronos ranked on Glassdoor’s annual listing of the Top 100 Best Places to Work in the U.S.
- Kronos ranked as a top employer in the software industry.
- While this is the first time Kronos has cracked Glassdoor’s Top 100 Best Places to Work list, CEO Aron Ain has twice been named a Glassdoor Highest Rated CEO.
- The Glassdoor Best Places to Work are determined entirely using anonymous company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between Nov. 1, 2016 and Oct. 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and considers quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
- When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, current and former employees are asked to rate their overall satisfaction and rank key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, leadership, culture, and values.
- Reviews are designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at a specific organization, as employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
- This employee-driven recognition joins a growing list of accolades received by Kronos for its unique workplace culture and overall success, including:
- Ain being recently featured in Harvard Business Reviewin an article explaining how the company successfully launched its unlimited vacation policy, myTime, in 2016.
- In the same month he was honored with the Glassdoor Top CEO honor, Ain was named by the Massachusetts High Technology Council as the winner of the inaugural Ray Stata Leadership and Innovation Award, while Kronos Chief People Officer David Almeda was named 2017 CHRO of the Year.
- Kronos was named one of the 2017 Best Workplaces for Giving Back by Fortune magazine, a Best Workplace for Women, and a Best Employer by Forbes for the third consecutive year.
