All achievements referenced occurred in 2014 unless otherwise noted.
For the third year in a row, in January 2014, Ultimate was the only human capital management provider to be named to FORTUNE® magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list, and we ranked #20. This honor built upon our #9 rank on FORTUNE’s 2013 list and our #25 ranking on the 2012 list, as well as our previous recognition twice as the #1 medium- size company to work for in America by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The 2015 list is scheduled to be revealed in March 2015.
We released our new UltiPro Recruiting product, with its unique consumer-style user interface, gamification, collaboration tools, mobility, and integration with popular social networks such as LinkedIn. UltiPro Recruiting is designed to transform talent acquisition from a recruiter- centric process to a candidate-focused one that engages candidates by enabling them to build an in-depth online presence that gives recruiters and hiring managers a more complete understanding of who they are rather than restricting them to posting résumés and completing limited profile details.
We released our new UltiPro Compensation Management product that assists managers in navigating logically through the process of allocating pay and rewards to their people. It also gives them a range of capabilities for analyzing current compensation and setting up compensation plans by various factors, such as performance.
We expanded our predictive analytics to include the UltiPro High Performer IndicatorTM and UltiPro High Performer PredictorTM, adding to our UltiPro Retention PredictorTM that won a Gold award in Brandon Hall Group’s Best Advance in Unique Talent Technology category in January 2014. Based on each customer’s employee data and more than 20 years of key HR, payroll, and talent metrics, UltiPro’s predictive analytics help leaders to better understand and predict employee performance, and give leaders a statistical backdrop for creating development plans that help employees fulfill their potential.
We further enhanced UltiPro’s global HCM capabilities in order to support our growing number of multinational customers. UltiPro is now available in 10 languages and has a current list of more than 35 country-specific localizations, including Indonesia, Qatar, and Vietnam. New globalized processes and country-specific localizations enable Ultimate’s customers to process payroll in each country via integrations with third-party global payroll providers.
We simplified UltiPro’s payroll tax management process by introducing a new feature called Smart Tax SearchTM to reduce the complexities and errors associated with assigning payroll tax codes to employees in the United States. Rather than relying on an administrator to assign appropriate tax codes, UltiPro leverages the latest GIS (geographic information systems) technology to automatically determine the correct federal, state, and local payroll taxation rules based on the home and office addresses in employees’ records.
We previewed our new UltiPro Onboarding product at the HR Technology Conference & Exposition and the Society for Human Resource Management conferences. UltiPro Onboarding is designed to help employers engage and welcome new employees into an organization before the first day of work and to speed their time to productivity. The new solution enables dynamic content such as video messages from executives, managers, and co-workers and gives new hires the ability to connect with fellow team members, request a mentor, engage in self-directed learning through a feature called “Unlock Your Potential,” and complete compliance and other required documents.
