Ultimate Software Ranked #3 on Fortune's 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity List for 2017
Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital
management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has
been ranked #3 on this year's 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity list
by Fortune and Great Place to Work. The ranking considers feedback from
more than 440,000 U.S. employees surveyed nationwide at organizations
representing a range of industries.
"At Ultimate, we pride ourselves in fostering an all-inclusive
environment that respects and welcomes people from all backgrounds, and
where employees feel comfortable being their true selves every day,"
said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. "It's an absolute
honor to be ranked on this list, as our 'People First' culture thrives
on an appreciation for the unique knowledge, views, and experiences each
person brings to work. We commend those organizations joining in our
commitment to celebrating and supporting diversity."
To further promote and ensure a workplace culture of inclusivity,
equality, and acceptance of all individuals, Ultimate encourages
employee participation in companywide Communities of Interest. There are
four groups: PrideUS, Women in Leadership, UltiVETS, and UltiHOPE, which
was established in October as a support network for cancer patients,
survivors, and caregivers. Because Ultimate's Communities of Interest
are intended to be inclusive, "allies" are welcome to join any Community
of Interest they choose to support and advocate. The groups host a
variety of networking, social, and community service events year-round.
In determining the 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity list for
2017, Great Place to Work based its rankings on a data-driven
methodology applied to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses
from 442,624 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.
The surveys evaluated more than 50 elements of employees' experiences on
the job, covering such factors as professional development, behaviors
linked to innovation, confidence in leadership, and consistent treatment
among employees of different backgrounds.
