Our Culture

Our Commitment to People. Our Community.

"People First" doesn't just drive the delivery of our customer service or the design of our cloud-based human resources solution. It's also a statement about our workplace life. At Ultimate Software, we take care of our employees, and we know it will show in the way they take care of you.

There are thousands of us committed to developing trendsetting human capital management solutions, and passionate about providing the highest levels of customer service. The Ultimate environment is a culture defined by the way we think, work, and behave—treating coworkers, customers, vendors, and the community with honesty and respect.

Walk through the halls of our offices at any time and you’ll see something that’s often lacking in corporate America today: happy, smiling employees. At Ultimate, we value our workforce, and are committed to maintaining a culture built on innovation, trust, respect, and care for all people. It’s why we’re recognized as one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For year after year.

We take great pride in our people and in their accomplishments, foster their continued professional growth, and encourage their ideas. All our departments have tenured people who know our HR solutions, believe in our mission, and understand our vision.

Our headquarters is in Weston, Florida. Perhaps it’s the sun or sea air that encourages Ultimate people to work with intensity, energy, and commitment. More likely, it is a genuine determination to deliver to our customers better HR and payroll cloud solutions than anyone else.

As individuals and as corporate citizens, the people of Ultimate also work to make a difference in our community. We firmly believe in doing the right thing and making a difference, starting locally. That’s evidenced by our contributions of time and money to charitable organizations such as:

  • American Cancer Society
  • American Heart Association
  • American Red Cross - Disaster Relief Efforts
  • Arc Broward
  • Becca's Closet
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital
  • Kids In Distress
  • Leiter's Landing
  • Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
  • Mothers Against Drunk Driving
  • National Multiple Sclerosis Society
  • Rebuilding Together
