Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that the company has been ranked #1 on the 30 Best Workplaces in Technology list for 2017, created by Fortune and Great Place to Work. The Best Workplaces in Technology rankings are determined entirely by survey feedback from more than 42,000 randomly selected employees from 155 companies that identified themselves as being in the technology sector. This is the second consecutive year Ultimate has been ranked as the top large technology company on the prestigious list.

“This honor belongs to each and every one of our employees. They’ve believed in us from the beginning and continue to make Ultimate a positive, productive workplace built on trust, care, and collaboration,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “With teamwork, dedication, and a central focus on always doing the right thing, our employees are empowered to learn, grow, and help one another reach their personal and professional best. Together, we’re committed to putting people first every day, delivering innovative HCM technology that drives organizational success, and providing personalized service and support to our customers so they can achieve their unique business goals with UltiPro.”

Ultimate strives to cultivate a culture of support and inclusion for all individuals, and it is a workplace that recognizes and rewards excellence in performance. With a commitment to providing industry-leading benefits, Ultimate offers 100 percent-employer-paid healthcare coverage for all full-time employees and their families; a 401(k) retirement plan with a 40 percent company match on every dollar, with no cap; paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave; and two paid service days a year for employees to volunteer in their communities at non-profit organizations of their choosing.

Ranking on Fortune’s 30 Best Workplaces in Technology list is determined by results from the anonymous Great Place to Work Trust Index Employee Survey. As part of the survey, employees answer questions about how frequently they experience the behaviors that create a great workplace. Survey statements address transparency of communication, degree of collaboration, quality of benefits programs, opportunity for professional development, and support for work-life balance, among other workplace characteristics, at the employees’ organizations.

“Staying competitive and delivering innovation to the market requires fresh perspectives from the workforce. The Best Workplaces in Technology have positioned themselves for ongoing success by creating a supportive, cooperative atmosphere that lets employees solve problems using the full range of their talents and ideas,” said Kim Peters, executive vice president at Great Place to Work.
