With a growing employee base, The Container Store understood the importance of maintaining its commitment to employee satisfaction and the unique culture it has created.

Limited internal resources for managing and maintaining the existing HR/payroll system put an undue burden on the company’s IT, Payroll and Benefits departments.

Additionally, with the challenges of supporting geographically dispersed employees, The Container Store found managing paperwork and quickly providing relevant reporting had become overly time-consuming and complex.


• Employees now have immediate, secure access to view and update personal information, benefits information, direct deposit preferences, and more.

• Employees can easily update records at home, at work, or on the road and then take greater control over their employment information.

• With UltiPro’s cloud access and employee self-service, HR teams and management can post forms and documents so The Container Store’s workforce can quickly access, view, or print these documents at their convenience.

• By migrating to a paperless environment, the company’s benefits and payroll staff no longer has to spend considerable work hours printing and distributing paychecks, company manuals, and other critical information..
