Ultimate Software, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that the company has been ranked #1 on the Best Workplaces in Technology list for 2018, created by Fortune and Great Place to Work. Rankings for the list considered survey feedback from more than 79,000 employees at technology companies across the United States. This is the third consecutive year Ultimate has been named the top large technology company on the list.

“From day one, we’ve dedicated ourselves to our people, and they’ve always returned the favor tenfold by caring for one another, serving our customers, and helping to better our communities,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “Our employees believe in always doing the right thing, and they consistently put others above themselves. Together, we’ve been able to build a workplace that respects individuality, runs on trust and collaboration, empowers productivity, and enables career success. We are humbled by this recognition, and we share this honor with each and every one of our employees.”

Founded in 1990 on the core principle of “People First,” Ultimate remains committed to providing a collaborative, employee-centric culture that values all individuals, fosters innovation, and encourages work-life balance. To help support employees’ professional and personal growth, Ultimate offers an extensive benefits package highlighted by 100%-employer-paid medical, dental, and vision premiums for all employees and their families (including same-sex married couples); a 40% dollar-for-dollar match on all employee 401(k) contributions, with no cap, up to federal limits; company ownership in the form of restricted stock units upon hiring; paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave; unlimited paid time off; and two paid service days annually that employees can use to volunteer in the community and support charitable causes of their choosing. Frequent workplace perks also include free meals; monthly visits from the ice cream truck; onsite massages, acupuncture, and cupping; and a variety of wellness programs and group exercise classes such as yoga, Pilates, and boot camps.

To determine final rankings on this year’s Best Workplaces in Technology list, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey responses from more than 79,000 employees at technology companies nationwide. The Trust Index survey evaluated more than 50 elements of an employee’s experience on the job, including communication, professional development, and recognition related to innovation.
