About us

 At Kronos, we believe that great businesses are powered by great people. To be a great business, organisations need to create and manage an engaged workforce. So, Kronos Incorporated makes workforce software solutions that are purpose-built for our customers’ industries and all of their employees.

Kronos focuses on three core principles: cultivating continuous innovation; building and sustaining our own engaged workforce through our WorkInspired culture; and fostering a customer-first approach. Much of our company’s success can be attributed to an award-winning corporate culture that attracts, retains, and inspires top talent.

The Kronos “WorkInspired” culture is built on a foundation of trust and transparency, which is woven into the fabric of Kronos beginning with CEO Aron Ain. In fact, Aron Ain literally wrote the book on employee engagement: In October 2018, he published “WorkInspired: How to Build an Organisation Where Everyone Loves to Work” .

What employees say

I’ve recently been able to do a phased return following maternity leave, working just a few days a week at first before getting up to a 5-day week. This phenomenal support as I adjust to being a career loving mum, has helped reduce the shock to both me and my little one and given me time to get my brain into gear!

What defines us

One thing that makes us unique is our approach to leadership. We believe that every Kronite deserves a great manager. For that, we took a deep quantitative and qualitative look into what our most effective managers do –– and exactly how they do it. This “great manager” data was gathered through a variety of sources from across Kronos – including focus groups, employee engagement surveys, Courage to Lead training sessions, feedback forms, and day-to-day interactions – and compiled into a master database to analyse what great managers do well specifically at Kronos, and where to improve.

Based on what Kronites are saying about their managers, it turns out that there are a discreet set of Kronos behaviours that are common to the most effective people managers. Great Kronos managers create an environment of trust and transparency by:

1. Empowering and enabling employees

2. Communicating openly and honestly

3. Developing and encouraging direct reports

4. Supporting the whole person, in and out of the workplace.

To keep us on track, our managers are scored against these behaviours every 6 months as part of our Manager Effectiveness Index.

What inspires us

Motivated, engaged, and energised. No matter what position you hold at Kronos, you’re a Kronite. And we want everyone to feel like they have the power to make a difference. That’s what it means to be a Kronite. That’s what it means to WorkInspired.”

Kronos is committed to a family-first workplace, bolstered by innovation, career advancement, and employee wellness, and we believe that every employee deserves a great manager, we offer an extensive variety of benefits and perks aimed at empowering all employees to be engaged and bring their whole selves to work.

The other key driver to the culture at Kronos is celebrating success. We have our recognition awards, but this is only part of the story. We celebrate our new hires, birthdays, special life events, we celebrate our relationship with our nominated charity partner, whizz kidz and to put it simply, we celebrate being Kronites!

Action highlights


At Kronos, we care about what you care about — balancing work and home life, managing health and wellness, and planning for retirement. One of the ways we aim to achieve this is through our employee wellbeing programme.

What's it all about? The aim of the programme is to provide you with access to materials, initiatives and policies that enable you to take personal control of your wellbeing, be it physical, mental, financial or social.

To take control of your life, or exercise personal leadership, is to take responsibility for yourself and for every area of your life. It means being connected with your values and vision and setting meaningful goals for yourself. When you take control, you become more productive and more optimistic.

Word from the top

Being recognised as a Best Workplace allows us to reflect on our engagement and HR programs each year.  We listen and react. We try to always improve, but never perfect. We know no one and nothing is perfect. Being a Great Place to Work is a never-ending journey.

Sr. Director, HR
