SEATTLE, WA - June 1, 2022 - PTO Exchange, the leading benefits platform that allows employees to self-direct the value of their unused paid time off (PTO) for other needs and causes, today introduced a new technology partnership with UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people. With 250 technology and services partners, UKG provides one of the largest and most collaborative partner ecosystems in the HCM industry focused on creating better employee experiences for all people to improve business outcomes. 

With this collaboration, organizations that utilize both PTO Exchange and UKG solutions, including UKG Pro, UKG Dimensions, and UKG Ready can benefit from a seamless, secure, easy, and fast integration that ensures each employee’s paycheck and PTO balances are adjusted appropriately when they convert unused vacation days into retirement, cash, charitable donations, or other uses.
