Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Building an inclusive environment for all people
We believe businesses succeed when all individuals are respected and all voices are heard.
More importantly, employees must have the support and resources necessary to thrive as professionals and people. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEI&B) at UKG focuses on building an inclusive environment where differences are respected, and our innovative spirit is unlocked.
Our DEI&B program includes foundational learning to mitigate bias, partnerships to build a diverse talent pipeline and maximize impact, accountability through goals and scorecard metrics, and actively making a difference at UKG and in our communities through participation in diverse employee resource groups.
Uniquely You, Uniquely Valued
Uniquely valuing our employees, customers, and partners helps us realize our corporate purpose. DEI&B at UKG starts with making our company a place where unique identities and perspectives are not only welcomed, but sought out, celebrated, and well-represented.
Our work continues as we champion a culture of trust, equity, and belonging for all, and a workplace where all U Krewers have abundant opportunities to grow. To be a true leader in DEI&B and empower our employees and customers to thrive, we must also drive positive change by investing in and partnering with organizations that work to build a diverse and inclusive future for all people.
The DEI&B program at UKG is composed of three pillars: BUILD a diverse, empowered, and inclusive workforce; CHAMPION a culture of trust, equity, and belonging for all; and ACCELERATE our investments to empower our ecosystem to make a meaningful impact and thrive.
We’re making UKG a place where unique identities and perspectives are not only welcomed, but sought out, celebrated, and well-represented — and all employees have abundant opportunity to grow.
We celebrate and connect our unique employees to drive awareness, advance workplace inclusion, expand opportunities, and integrate accountability to create superior outcomes for all.
We drive positive change by investing in organizations that work to build a diverse and inclusive future.
Our DEI&B program has several strategic initiatives that build upon our pillars.

A global set of internal advocates who will be empowered and well-equipped to effectively communicate and execute our DEI&B strategy both at UKG and outside our company.
An innovative talent-engagement program focused on empowering the next generation of global, underrepresented talent to excel within the digital enterprise, and making UKG an employer of choice.

To help amplify diverse voices and bring UKG employees together for support, development, and connection, we offer companywide employee resource groups (ERGs) for members and allies. Currently, we have eight ERGs to help our people build awareness and take action both within UKG and outside of our walls. ERG management and member engagement is measured and tracked through the Belonging and Engagement Center at UKG, our hub for member information, events, resources, conversations, and participation.
