LAS VEGAS, KronosWorks™ ,

This week at KronosWorks, the world's largest workforce management information exchange, customers of Kronos Incorporated will discuss the growing value of employee engagement and why it matters. They will also demonstrate how Kronos workforce management solutions help build and measure employee engagement.

News Facts

  • Research shows that strong correlations between employee engagement and performance are highly consistent across different organizations from diverse industries and regions of the world.1 Echoing this sentiment, Kronos customers will present sessions at KronosWorks that will help attendees understand, measure, and improve employee engagement.
    • While employee engagement is a priority for organizations today, many still don't know exactly how to measure and improve it. Leaders from Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, a not-for-profit, community hospital and Sodexo UK and Ireland, part of the Sodexo Group, the worldwide leader in Quality of Life Services, will share how Kronos solutions help managers and employees understand and promote trust, teamwork, and rewards to ultimately improve engagement and operational bottom line.
    • Leaders from North Shore LIJ Health System's Cohen Children's Medical Center, a nationally top-ranked pediatric care provider, will share their perspectives on building and measuring employee engagement and the contributing factors that influence this engagement. They will focus on the importance of the Kronos employee scheduling solution with self-service functionality in helping build employee engagement by giving employees insight into decision making.
    • As labor demographics change, organizations must proactively adjust labor strategies to attract and retain the best talent. Leaders from the nation's leading retailer of storage and organization solutions, The Container Store, will present actionable information on how to hire and retain the best employees with a focus on what motivates millennials. Presenters from The Container Store, which is consistently ranked nationally as a top place to work2, will demonstrate how the retailer continues to improve employee morale, customer service, and operational efficiency with Kronos.
  • Earlier this year, Kronos announced its Employee Engagement Survey results, which found that 84 percent of Kronos employees are engaged, well above the global IT best-in-class benchmark. The survey also revealed that 90 percent of Kronos employees are proud to work at Kronos and feel confident about the company's future. In 2015, Kronos was ranked as an employer of choice in Boston, Mass. for the fourth year in a row and named a best place to work nationally in Canada and India.
