Our priorities

Transparency and accountability are essential to Ceridian’s success. That’s why we developed a series of measurable targets to propel our work on ESG issues and to give our stakeholders an opportunity to evaluate our performance over time. These five pillars and 10 priority topics reflect our determination as an innovative and forward-thinking company. We believe these goals are ambitious but realistic, and we intend to make steady progress toward achieving them in the coming years.

Governance and trust

Ceridian’s Our Way values are essential to our culture. They’re the basis for our success and the guiding standards for how we run our organization. We know that nothing is more important than preserving the trust of our partners, our customers, and their employees. That starts with upholding the highest standards of corporate governance and ethics. We have a responsibility to our customers and their employees to ensure that our enterprise is secure; that their data is protected; and that our products are consistent, reliable, and resilient.

Our people

How can we best support the experiences of our people and live up to our Makes Work Life Better™ promise? The sudden evolution into a new world of work has encouraged Ceridian to think big and be bold. We formed a new employee experience team to strengthen worker outcomes and support productivity and innovation, and we’re focused heavily on employee wellness and leadership learning development to ensure our people have everything they need to thrive.

Tech for good

In a fluid and challenging era, organizations need to be dynamic and creative to attract and retain the best talent. Ceridian is committed to innovating responsibly and ethically to offer products and technologies to help our customers do just that. To name a few examples: Dayforce Wallet's flexibility empowers and supports the modern needs of employers and employees alike. Dayforce Talent Intelligence is a powerful suite of transformative talent management solutions powered by AI and machine learning. And Dayforce People Analytics empowers leaders with real-time actionable insights to better manage and support their employees.


Our communities

Ceridian has always believed in the importance of giving where we're living. Through corporate donations, employee-led fundraising, and staff volunteering, we're proud to contribute to the communities where we live and work. For a global company, localized giving takes on new meaning and its impact can be profound. Our Ceridian Cares foundation provides grants for food, clothing, shelter, and other needs that help individuals and families experience the quality of life they deserve.



The global threats posed by climate change can seem ominous, but they’re something we can and must solve together. It’s critically important that businesses do their part to address this very real crisis, and Ceridian is committed to significantly reducing our carbon footprint over time.
