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 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 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.
