    At Ultimate Software, we have always put our people first. This idea permeates our culture to its core. For over 25 years, it has driven us to create the innovative products and services we offer today. As a result, we enable our customers to put their people first—helping them build the people-centric environments they need to grow and meet their business goals.

    We believe software should work for people. Not the other way around. Customers choose us for our sophisticated people management technology delivered in the cloud. But we know that it’s the results—how well we improve the personal work experience for you and your employees—that matter most.

    With a focus on people in everything we do, we’ve built UltiPro® with comprehensive capabilities and simplicity of use to make your life easier. We give you tools to manage every workforce need, in order to recruit and retain a high-performing workforce. You get HR, payroll, and talent management in a single solution that seamlessly connects people globally with the information and resources they need to work more effectively.

    Ultimate has more than 4,000 customers with employees in 160 countries, including Bloomin’ Brands, Culligan International, Feeding America, Major League Baseball, Red Roof Inn, SUBWAY, Texas Roadhouse, and Yamaha Corporation of America.

    Our focus on people is evident and award-winning. Ultimate Software is ranked #7 on Fortune magazine’s 2017 list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, having ranked in the top 25 on the list since 2012. We were also named Fortune’s #1 Best Workplace for Millennials in 2017 and the #1 Best Large Workplace in Technology two years in a row (2016 and 2017). We take great pride in the talents and accomplishments of our employees, and value the unique ideas, beliefs, and experiences of all people.

    We are proud to have been recognized as Fortune’s #1 Workplace for Hispanics and Latinos, and as a Best Workplace for Women and for African-Americans. As of August 2016, women comprise 49% of our total workforce, and 42% of all UltiWomen hold leadership positions (manager or above) at Ultimate. Moreover, African-Americans and Hispanics comprise 30% of our overall employee population, compared with an average of about 10% at four of the largest Fortune 500 technology companies.

    Together, we are committed to “People First.” Always.
