Perks and Programs

We asked Kronos Incorporated to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • "myTime" - open paid time off: New in 2016, Kronites have the flexibility to manage their time off in a way that works best for them. myTime is an open time off policy that removes concepts of predetermined, "accrued" time off allowances and instead lets Kronites take paid time off whenever they need for whatever reason -- sick time, vacation, bereavement, volunteer time...anything -- to find that maximum balance between their work responsibilities and their personal lives.  myTime is available to all employees from day one.
  • Flexible Schedules: Kronites around the world work with their managers to develop a schedule that allows the employee to maintain a healthy work/life balance and maximize their productivity.
  • Student Loan Repayment Assistance: Kronos strongly believes in the importance of a college degree, but also recognizes that most graduates today are in debt from achieving their educational goals. To help ease that burden, we offer a financial assistance program with company contribution to help Kronites pay off their student loan debt faster!
  • Child Care Financial Assistance: At Kronos, we realize that the cost of quality childcare can be a financial challenge. New in 2016, this benefit subsidizes the cost of qualified childcare in addition to the FSA/DCA benefits we've had for years.
  • Parental Leave Enhancement: Welcoming a new child into your world -- through birth or adoption -- is an important and exciting time for Kronite families. We've enhanced our parent leave policies to give both moms and dads fully paid time to bond with their new family members and get acclimated into their new lives.
  • Executive Thanksgiving Lunch: Every year, Kronites at HQ enjoy a Thanksgiving lunch served by the Kronos executive team. It is a great way to take time and chat with the leadership team and enjoy a delicious lunch with co-workers.
  • Pet Insurance: At Kronos, we believe that pets are family members, too! To help keep our furry friends healthy, we subsidize the cost of pet insurance for employees.
  • On-site Wellness Coach: Kronos offers an onsite wellness coach available free of charge to all U.S. employees. The coach meets one-on-one with any interested employee and provides guidance on a range of health topics such as nutrition, exercise, chronic disease management, and stress management.
