An Open Letter to Our People on Employee Appreciation Day

March 3, 2017      By Vivian Maza

Every year on the first Friday in March, one of my favorite holidays is celebrated: Employee Appreciation Day. While we make every effort to put people first every day, I wanted to take this special occasion to thank our incredible employees for their relentless passion, loyalty, determination, and drive. Fortune ranked us the #1 Best Large Workplace in Technology—twice—because you, our people, are the best. And for that, we’re eternally grateful.

Thank you for your dedication to designing the industry’s most innovative, intuitive HCM software.

Thank you for providing award-winning, white-glove service to every customer, every day.

Thank you for being you, and for sharing your unique ideas, stories, and experiences with us.

Thank you for keeping our “People First” culture alive.

Ultimate Software employees will be taking over our account on Facebook LIVE to share their proudest moments and to thank the people who’ve had the biggest impact on their lives and careers. Stay tuned for a visit from our monthly ice cream truck.

Happy Employee Appreciation Day!

Thank you for making US who we are.

    As I reflect back on my long HR career I knew there was place for me where I could put my technical skills together my HR skills and experience. This Ulti HOME was meant to be for me. When I first heard Scott speak at A SHRM conference many years ago about Ultimate Software being a great to place work in that moment I decided somehow, some way I was going to work for US. I never imaged all those years ago that this vision would come true! We all say this, but I very truly feel so fortune to have this opportunity. Thank you Viv and Scott for creating this amazing, giving, working community!
