Acknowledging its steadfast commitment to fostering an inclusive and equitable workplace environment that positively impacts all employees, UKG — a leading provider of HR, payroll, workforce management, and culture solutions for all people — has earned a spot on Newsweek’s “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women 2024” list for the second year in a row.

This accolade for UKG underscores its dedication to cultivating workplaces where every employee can thrive and serves as a testament to the positive impact of strong leadership and equitable practices.

In this annual ranking, Newsweek surveyed women across the United States, evaluating companies based on various criteria, including compensation, benefits, work-life balance, and proactive management of diversity. Notably, UKG also secured a spot on this year’s Newsweek’s “America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity” list for the second year in a row, reinforcing its commitment to inspiring all companies to create an inclusive and supportive workplace culture.

“The women at UKG are a driving force behind our success, bringing unparalleled talent, resilience, and innovation to the table. Their leadership, both in and out of executive roles, serves as a constant source of inspiration for me and the entire organization,” said Brian K. Reaves, chief belonging, equity, and impact officer at UKG. “I am deeply grateful for the incredible contributions of the women and individuals who identify as female at UKG. Their dedication and unique perspectives enrich our workplace every day, making us a stronger and more vibrant community.”
