Date: March 29, 2017 11:00 AM EDT – Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that Ultimate has been ranked #2 on People magazine’s inaugural 50 Companies That Care list. The ranking recognizes companies going the extra mile to foster caring workplace cultures by offering employees extraordinary benefits and perks, professional and personal development, and many opportunities for giving and community service.

“We are honored to be named to People’s first-ever Companies That Care list,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “For 27 years, we’ve focused every day on caring for our people and putting our employees, their families, and the community first. We view Ultimate as a second home for our people, and we do all we can to treat them like family—from ensuring their health and personal well-being, to helping them build successful careers, to recognizing their outstanding performance. In return, we know they’re willing to always go above and beyond for US and our customers, preserving our culture, creating innovative technology, and providing exceptional service.”

Ultimate facilitates a caring and supportive workplace through a variety of programs for employees. These include such benefits as 100% employer-paid healthcare premiums (medical, dental, and vision) for all full-time employees and their families, including same-sex married couples; a 401(k) retirement plan with a 40% company match on every dollar contributed, with no cap on the match; paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave; and two paid service days a year for volunteering at nonprofit organizations of their choice. Employees are also essentially part owners of Ultimate, as each receives restricted stock units upon hiring and can earn additional shares for performance.

On a daily basis, Ultimate shows its people how much they are valued, respected, and admired. Employees are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and to join Ultimate’s diverse Communities of Interest—PrideUS, Women in Leadership, and UltiVETS—each offering networking events and promoting acceptance, equality, and support for all individuals. Ultimate cares for its employees’ health and well-being with a variety of programs, including on-site massages, meditation, acupuncture, stretching, exercise classes, and access to a full-time wellness coach. For professional growth, Ultimate fosters ongoing career development through two hands-on leadership programs, LeadUS and Footprints, and a comprehensive online learning center available to all employees.

Ultimate congratulates its customers also named to the list, including Activision Blizzard, Acuity, Adobe Systems, Camden Property Trust, The Container Store, David Weekley Homes, Kimley-Horn, Nvidia, Quicken Loans, and Recreational Equipment, Inc.
