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 programme includes foundational learning to mitigate bias, partnerships to build a diverse talent pipeline and maximise 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.

“Creating an inclusive workplace requires continually adapting to the needs of people as unique individuals and providing the resources necessary to enable our employees, customers, and communities to grow and thrive. That’s why DEI&B are woven into the fabric of UKG and serve as a foundation for our practices and policies companywide.”

Uniquely You, Uniquely Valued

Uniquely valuing our employees, customers, and partners helps us realise 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 organisations that work to build a diverse and inclusive future for all people.

Employee Resource Groups

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 Centre at UKG, our hub for member information, events, resources, conversations, and participation.
