Original Program Date: March 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through July 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

Imagine a company where everyone loves to work, where employees feel not just satisfied, but truly cared for, respected and energized. Think of the impact this would have on recruitment, retention, customer satisfaction, innovation, and overall performance. Aron Ain, the award-winning CEO of Kronos (one of the top CEOs as recognized by Glassdoor) believes that anything is possible when people are inspired. By embracing employee development and engagement as a growth strategy, Ain transformed his company’s culture and built a billion-dollar business.

Since becoming CEO in 2005, Ain and his team have focused on employee engagement as a growth strategy and have seen employee engagement scores increase dramatically while revenue nearly tripled.

This program provides a glimpse inside Kronos’ highly admired "WorkInspired" culture, highlighting some surprisingly simple advice to replicate that success.

Sharlyn Lauby of HR Bartender will host this conversation with Ain, describing the building blocks to create an inspiring place to work, including how to:
  • Build a culture of trust
  • Give employees their time back
  • Hold managers accountable for being great leaders
  • Develop humble yet inspiring “un-leaders”
  • Empower the next-generation workforce
