Fortune Ranks Ultimate Software #5 Best Workplace for Millennials, #5 for Gen Xers

Date: July 15, 2016 2:00 PM EDT

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today it has been ranked #5 on Fortune’s list of 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, and #5 on Fortune’s list of 20 Best Workplaces for Gen Xers. Both rankings are based entirely on employee feedback from Great Place to Work® surveys of more than 88,000 millennials (born 1981 or later) and more than 109,000 Gen Xers (born between 1965 and 1980).

“We are grateful that Ultimate employees across generations recognize the value of our ‘People First’ culture,” said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate. “From the beginning, we’ve built our business by providing for our people, so they thrive and feel empowered to always do the right thing. These survey results demonstrate that this philosophy resonates with our employees at every stage of their careers. We’ve dedicated ourselves to creating an environment where our people are honored to work here and, as a result, we all believe it’s a privilege to serve our customers.”

Employees at 620 Great Place to Work-certified organizations rated their companies on 58 workplace-quality questions. Millennials considered factors such as the sincerity of managers’ support for people’s personal and professional lives, how transparent communication is, people’s ability to be themselves at work and to invest in their lives outside work, and the meaning they get from their jobs. Gen Xers considered factors such as advancement opportunities, generosity of benefits packages, genuineness of work-life balance support, connections with their colleagues, and the ability to make a difference in their work. These anonymous responses resulted in a total score for each company, which was compared with the benchmark for organizations of that size.
