Ultimate Software, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that CIO.com has ranked Ultimate #1 on its 10 Best Places to Work for Women in Technology list.

“We are incredibly proud to be recognized not only as a company that puts people first, but as one that supports, respects, and values the contributions of women in the technology industry,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “Since our founding 27 years ago, we’ve made our employees our top priority, and we strive every day to provide the resources our people need to achieve their goals and advance their careers. At the same time, we’ve known for a long time the crucial role women play as innovators and leaders in any business—but particularly in the realm of high tech. It’s an honor to cited as an example of the type of inclusive culture that fosters female leaders in the workplace.”

The ranking is based on data collected by the Great Place to Work® Institute, which surveyed more than 400,000 U.S. employees from Great Place to Work-Certified companies. According to the survey results, 99% of Ultimate’s respondents say they have special and unique benefits at the company, 98% feel good about how Ultimate contributes to the community, and 98% are proud to tell others they work at Ultimate.

Women comprise nearly half (49%) of Ultimate’s total workforce, and 42% of females at Ultimate hold leadership positions of manager or above. Employees can participate in Ultimate’s Women in Leadership (WIL) group, which offers women at all job levels an outlet to learn, connect, and succeed through a variety of networking, professional development, mentoring, and community service events. To help develop the next generation of female leaders, earlier this year, Ultimate and WIL introduced the Athena Scholarship, awarding two annual college scholarships of up to $20,000 each to graduating daughters of Ultimate employees, as well as rising seniors graduating high school next year. The scholarships will be awarded to young women pursuing studies in tech (such as computer science, engineering, programming, user experience and test programming, and user experience design) or who demonstrate superior leadership skills in their school and/or community, with the potential to become a woman leader.

Ultimate continues to expand its support and care for employees, within the workplace and beyond its walls. In January, Ultimate added coverage for infertility treatments as part of the company’s healthcare plan, which already includes 100% employer-paid medical, dental, and vision premiums for all employees and their families (including same-sex married couples). As part of its comprehensive benefits package, Ultimate also offers employees paid maternity and adoption leave, as well as paid paternity leave; and unlimited paid time off throughout the year.
