Date: November 29, 2017 10:00 AM EDT
Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has been ranked #2 on this year’s 50 Best Workplaces for Parents list by Fortune and Great Place to Work. The ranking is based on survey responses from more than 440,000 employees in organizations across the United States, and also considers the range of benefits and programs companies offer to equally support working parents and employees without children.
Aligning with its companywide commitment to always put people first, Ultimate pays 100% of medical, dental, and vision premiums for all employees and their families (including same-sex married couples), with coverage for IVF treatments. Ultimate also provides 10 weeks of paid maternity and adoption leave, as well as four weeks of paid paternity leave; access to private, onsite "Mommy's Rooms" for nursing women; unlimited paid time off throughout the year; $300 annually (per child) to help cover costs of extracurricular activities; company ownership in the form of Restricted Stock Units upon hiring; and a 401(k) retirement plan with a 40% dollar-for-dollar company match, with no cap, up to federal limits.
"For 27 years, we've focused on making Ultimate feel like a second home for employees because we value our people like family," said Vivian Maza, chief people officer at Ultimate. "Caring for family is core to our 'People First' belief, and we're honored to be recognized as a great workplace for parents and a company committed to work-life balance. As our extended family grows, we'll continue to provide the supportive resources and programs that enable our employees to develop their careers, achieve their professional goals, raise their own families, and foster fulfilling lives beyond our walls."
In determining the 50 Best Workplaces for Parents list, Great Place to Work based its rankings on a data-driven methodology applied to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses from 443,258 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. The surveys considered more than 50 factors that contribute to employees’ success, with a strong emphasis on the well-being of those raising children while working.
