UKG
(ULTIMATE KRONOS GROUP)
 CONSULTANTS

HR technology represents a significant financial investment for most companies, but many never realize their system's true potential of a system optimized for the organization's specific needs. With Willory, your UKG system becomes more than a computer system, and evolves into a robust platform that enables you to be more strategic and make better decisions. 

Based in Northeast Ohio, but serving organizations throughout the United States, Willory’s focus and dedication is HR & payroll. We became an official Ultimate Software partner in 2016, but the dedicated Willory consulting team has worked on Ultimate Software-related projects throughout our company’s history. We have maintained and expanded that relationship through their merger with Kronos and subsequent rebranding as UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group). We’re here to ensure clients achieve successful activations and ensure those systems are full optimized. We act as a functional, technical, and leadership resource to work alongside you to ensure culturally appropriate and legally compliant results.

Willory is much more than a client-side implementation partner. We offer wrap around HR & payroll services. On our staffing side we provide temporary staff augmentation and direct hire search services for HR & payroll positions. Our searches are customized and predicated on the fact that each client, job search, and candidate is unique. On our operations side we conduct HR/payroll assessments, compliance reviews, and procedure documentation. Having effective HR & payroll policies in place is one of the best ways clients can safeguard and accentuate their investment in UKG.
