Aron Ain

CEO; Author, Kronos Incorporated

Kronos CEO Aron Ain fiercely contends that great businesses are powered by great people and that there is a direct link between employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and business success – and he has proof. Since becoming CEO in 2005, Ain and team have put a laser focus on employee engagement as a growth strategy and saw worldwide employee engagement scores skyrocket as revenue nearly tripled to $1.4 billion.

Ain joined Kronos in 1979 and – as the only company he’s ever worked for – has played a role in nearly every functional department at the company, helping to build a global enterprise software powerhouse. With more than 35,000 organizations using Kronos solutions across 100+ countries, Kronos is a leading global provider of workforce management and human capital management cloud solutions.

Regarded as a pioneer in workforce management and human capital management, Ain has been instrumental in revolutionizing the way organizations manage their workforces with a new generation of products and services that empower employees to work smarter, work their way, and work in a modern cloud. Kronos industry-leading cloud, analytics, and mobile technologies are designed to serve global customer needs, increase productivity, manage compliance risk, and drive employee engagement.

Ain believes that being an active participant in the broader community brings balance to his life and allows him to give back in recognition of all the guidance he has received over his career. Ain serves on the Board of Trustees of his alma mater, Hamilton College, in Clinton, New York, is a member of the Board of Directors at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Mass., and serves as a member of the Board of Directors at Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) in Boston, Mass. Ain is also an active member of several other community organizations and business groups, including the Massachusetts High Technology Council, where Ain serves as the current Council Chairman.

In addition to a bachelor’s degree in economics and government from Hamilton College, Ain has participated in a series of executive education programs, including the AEA/Stanford Executive Institute at Stanford University.
