TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/HCM?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#HCMlt;/agt;–Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading global provider of human
capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that
Ultimate ranks #3 on the Best Workplaces in Canada 2019
list by Great Place to Work. The list is based on employee feedback and
in-depth reviews of workplace cultures at hundreds of organizations
across Canada, representing diverse sizes and industries.

“We are so proud of our Canadian employees for earning this award and
honoured to be recognized again as one of the Best Workplaces in
the country,” said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. “The
care, trust, respect, and commitment our people bring to work every day
helps keep our ‘People First’ culture strong and enables Ultimate to
make a difference in the lives of so many people—not just throughout
Canada, but across the globe. Together, we create innovative HR
technology, provide personalized support to our customers, and serve our
communities through selfless giving. Together, we help one another
thrive.”

Ultimate fosters the personal growth and career success of our people
through ongoing learning, mentorship, and leadership-development
programs. In 2019, Ultimate launched a companywide U Belong program
dedicated to ensuring all employees continue to feel safe and
welcome bringing their whole selves to work. U Belong builds upon the
foundations and principles of Ultimate’s longstanding diversity
practices, working with leaders across the company to develop a
comprehensive diversity program and support system. Employees are also
encouraged to join and participate in Ultimate’s Community of Interest
groups: PRIDEUS for LGBTQIA individuals; Women in Leadership for women
at all levels of the organization; UltiVETS for veterans and active
service members; UltiHOPE for cancer patients, survivors, and
caregivers; and Women in Technology, established in February 2019 to
support all women in tech roles, through a variety of educational
programs, networking, community involvement, and mentoring opportunities.

As part of a wide-ranging benefits package for Canada-based employees,
Ultimate provides extended healthcare coverage for all employees and
their families; a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) with a 45%
dollar-for-dollar match on all employee contributions; paid maternity
and adoption leave (10 weeks each), as well as paid paternity leave (4
weeks); unlimited PTO throughout the year; three annual paid service
days for employees to volunteer at charities of their choosing; and an
annual stipend (up to $300 per child) to help cover the costs of
children’s extracurricular activities. Ultimate also offers a
companywide wellness program, serving six pillars of well-being and
providing access to onsite group-exercise classes (including yoga and
boot camps). Additional offerings include free daily snacks and weekly
lunches, birthday celebrations, team outings, onsite video games, table
tennis, foosball, and more.

Rankings for the Best
Workplaces in Canada
2019 list
are based on two main
criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from employees’ anonymous
survey responses, and one-third from a thorough review of organizations’
workplace cultures. For the 2019 list, Great Place to Work surveyed over
80,000 employees from more than 400 companies across Canada and ranked
the top 50 in three size categories (1,000+ employees, 100-999
employees, and fewer than 100 employees). This marks Ultimate’s second
consecutive year in the top three for companies with 1,000+ employees,
and Ultimate is the highest-ranking HCM software provider on the 2019
list.
