Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has been ranked #7 on the 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back list, created by Fortune and Great Place to Work. The rankings are based on more than 350,000 surveys of employees across a range of industries nationwide, as well as their organizations’ charitable programs and giving track records.

“We are honored to be ranked on the 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back list for the second consecutive year because making a difference is our way of life,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “One of the core tenets of our ‘People First’ culture is creating a positive impact on those around us. Giving back and community service are inspiring traditions at Ultimate. Our employees feel more pride in our company and deeper meaning in our work as a result. This state of mind translates into stronger relationships with our customers and builds partnerships that last for life.”

Ultimate encourages its employees to make a difference in their communities and provides full-time employees with two paid days per year for community service and volunteer work with charities of their choosing. The company also matches dollar for dollar the total amount of donations that its employees generously give to charitable causes, including global aid to victims of natural disasters.

The 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back were determined by research and consulting firm Great Place to Work based on feedback from more than 357,000 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. Employees answered questions about how proud they are of their impact on the community, the difference they feel they make, and whether their work has special meaning. Scores also took into account organizations’ policies regarding paid time off for volunteering and the extent to which they contribute to community and charitable causes through corporate donations and employee fund-matching programs. Rankings reward companies where not only the majority of employees are proud of their community involvement, but these experiences are also widely shared within the organization regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, job role, or other personal characteristics.
