Creating the Best Workplace in Tech

All of us at Ultimate Software are honored to be named FORTUNE’s Best Workplace in Technology. 

Ultimate Software is the #1 Best Workplace in Technology, according to Fortune Magazine. Ultimate Software puts People First. Always.

We started out more than 25 years ago with one core belief: put people first. Always. It’s a principle that drives all we do.

Over the years, we’ve weathered many changes. We’ve seen good and bad times. We’ve grown in great numbers. But there’s been one constant: people first.

It’s simple, but it’s powerful. We believe that, when you put your people at the center of all you do, they’ll do the same. They’ll take care of you, your customers, and, most importantly, each other.

Because the best companies aren’t just built on leading products and services. They’re built on trust. They’re built on respect. They’re built by people.

At Ultimate, we’ve focused on creating a positive and productive environment. An atmosphere that thrives on teamwork. A place that doesn’t feel like work, but more like a daily family reunion.

We’ve been fortunate enough to create that workplace. One that values everyone’s individual ideas, values, and contributions. One that continues to provide unlimited opportunities for growth, personally and professionally. 

I credit all our people for this award. This honor belongs to them. And I give special thanks to our Chief People Officer, Viv Maza, and her amazing team. They’re relentless in ensuring Ultimate remains the best place to work.

But our work is far from over. We’ll continue to build and deliver the best products, the best services, and the best culture. Putting people first at every step.
