Fostering great leadership is one area this workforce-management software company prioritizes for employees, known as Kronites. Through the company’s Manager Effectiveness Index, managers get feedback from employees every six months through a survey to foster better employee-manager relationships. At the company’s annual Courage to Lead award contest and gala, those leaders who stand out, across all areas of the business, are awarded a travel voucher to use for a vacation (last year’s voucher was for $5,000). In 2019, more than half of the 22 managers awarded were women. “Lines of communication are open—feedback is welcome and encouraged. My point of view and perspective is valued and considered,” says one employee.
