Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people
management solutions, announced today that Ultimate has again been named
to FORTUNE magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.”
Ultimate is the only human capital management provider on this
prestigious list and the highest ranked cloud technology provider.
FORTUNE chooses the 100 Best Companies to Work For by partnering with
the Great Place to Work Institute each year to conduct the most
extensive employee survey in corporate America. More than 277,000
employees from participating companies responded to a survey created by
the institute, a global research and consulting firm operating in 45
countries around the world. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on
the results of the institute’s Trust Index survey, which is sent to a
random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions
related to their attitudes about management’s credibility, job
satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on company
responses to the institute’s Culture Audit. Some of the other companies
on the 2013 list along with Ultimate are: Google, Dreamworks,
Mercedes-Benz, Whole Foods, Microsoft, Capital One, American Express,
Goldman Sachs, Starbucks, and Federal Express.
“Ultimate began as a small team of people who had full trust in the
initial vision. They were hard working and talented, and we wanted to
take care of them. Twenty-three years later, our strong commitment to
our employees is still the same. We thank our more than 1,600 employees
today for making this recognition and many other successes happen for
us,” said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate.
“Putting employees first is the keystone of Ultimate’s foundational
values, and we believe this guiding principle sets us apart from other
providers in the human
capital management (HCM) market. We are very honored to be the
only HCM provider on the list,” added Scherr.
All of us at Ultimate want to extend our congratulations to our
customers that also made FORTUNE’s 2013 Best Companies to Work For list.
Some are: Baker Donelson, Camden Property Trust, The Container Store,
Google, JM Family Enterprises, NuStar Energy, Perkins Coie, and Quicken
Loans—with a special congratulations to Google for ranking #1 for the
last two years.
Ultimate develops, supports, and distributes cloud
technology solutions for human resources, payroll, and talent management
to companies of nearly all sizes in diverse industries. Ultimate helps
organizations manage their workforces strategically and cost-effectively
by providing business intelligence analytics and administrative
functionality in such areas as talent acquisition and onboarding, human
resources management and compliance, benefits management and online

development, and time and attendance management.
Previous to our current ranking of #9 on FORTUNE’s 2013 list, Ultimate
was ranked #25 on the 2012 FORTUNE list and #1 on the medium-size
company list of “Best Places to Work” in both 2008 and 2009 by The Great
Place to Work Institute, the same organization that evaluates companies
for the FORTUNE list.
The full 2013 list is available today exclusively on FORTUNE’s iPad App.
The 2013 list and related stories will appear on FORTUNE’S Web site
tomorrow morning, January 17, at www.Fortune.com/BestCompanies
and in the February 4 issue of FORTUNE magazine, which will be at
newsstands on Monday, January 21.
