Ultimate Software Brings Mercer | Sirota Employee Engagement Benchmarking to UltiPro Customers
Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital
management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has
entered into an agreement with Mercer, a global consulting leader in
advancing health, wealth, and career-and a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MMC)-allowing UltiPro customers
to use Mercer | Sirota's benchmarking data to understand how their own
key workforce metrics, such as employee satisfaction and employee
engagement, compare to those of similar businesses.
Today's labor market is highly competitive, with an increasing focus on
employee satisfaction and engagement. Many organizations want to better
understand how the employee experiences at their own organizations stack
up against companies in the same industry or geography. Ultimate's
agreement with Mercer enables UltiPro customers to compare their own
company's employee survey scores with the average scores of other
similar organizations. Leveraging Mercer | Sirota's expertise in
engagement survey design and robust benchmarking from nearly 6 million
individual data points, Ultimate's customers who use UltiPro's employee
survey and sentiment analysis tool, UltiPro Perception, will now be able
to select from more than 130 questions to capture their own employees'
ratings, and then view those ratings alongside Mercer | Sirota's
employee engagement and satisfaction benchmark data. Customers can
compare their own employee ratings against overall averages for the same
questions, or they can even drill-down to compare only companies in
their own country or same vertical industry.
Powered by Xander™, UltiPro Perception's advanced natural language
processing (NLP) and machine learning technology provides a modern way
for organizations to easily survey their workforce, gather input,
understand employee sentiment, and assess the effectiveness of teams and
managers. Mercer | Sirota's robust global benchmark data will integrate
with Ultimate's best-practice survey templates within UltiPro
Perception. Mercer | Sirota will also provide Ultimate's customers
optional value-added consulting services for strategic guidance on
survey design, execution, and follow up.
"Building upon our decade-long investment in artificial intelligence
specifically focused on understanding people, the Mercer | Sirota
relationship reinforces UltiPro Perception's leadership in employee
sentiment and feedback," said Adam Rogers, CTO, Ultimate Software.
