WESTON, Fla.--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that the company has been ranked #4 on the inaugural list of “Ten Great Workplaces for Millennials.” This list is produced by Great Place to Work®’s Great Rated!™, the site that provides in-depth insight to job seekers on hundreds of companies and their cultures.
Companies appearing on the list of Ten Great Workplaces for Millennials were rated based upon Trust Index© employee survey scores from respondents under the age of 35 and include only companies with at least 50 millennial-aged respondents. Trust Index© scores reflect the average response of employees to 58 statements that measure levels of trust, pride, and camaraderie within a company.
“Millennials are a crucial generation for businesses as they plan for their future,” said Kim Peters, CEO of Great Rated!™ “These companies have found that meaningful work, ethical and caring management, and generous compensation make young employees feel comfortable and excited about work.”
Ultimate offers many career growth opportunities in a highly collaborative, technologically advanced, and innovative work environment that young professionals often seek. In addition, Ultimate has a unique culture of family, and many at the company say they have found a “home” they never want to leave. Benefits at Ultimate include all employees being given stock ownership when they are hired, 100% company-paid medical and dental coverage for employees and their families (including domestic partners), and a 35% match on 401(k) contributions.
