"At UKG, culture starts with people, and our values of United, Kind and Growing provide a foundation for who they are as an organization. When people feel valued and that they belong, their innovative spirit is unlocked and they are empowered to tap into their unique talents for the good of themselves, their team, their company, their customers, and their community. 

Inclusive leaders have a responsibility to act in cooperation with each other to create a great place to work centered around equity of representation, opportunity, compensation, and well-being for all. This means recognizing a person’s value — regardless of their demographic — and compensating them fairly and equitably based on their skills, experience, and performance. Companies must also create equitable opportunities for well-being support and advancement for all their people. Inclusive leaders who fail to address all facets of equity ignore the deep systemic issues that prevent them from creating a great place to work for all. 

In this session, Pat Wadors, chief people officer at UKG, and Brian Reaves, chief belonging, diversity, and equity officer at UKG, will share candid and inspiring insights as leaders in partnership at the forefront this critical work of advancing a “For All” culture. They will dive into the important tipping points leaders must face to make lasting change. They’ll share the essential skills inclusive leaders must develop — from listening to employees to creating genuine connections — to create cultures where every worker feels they belong, are valued, and matter. "
