TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that Ultimate has been named a 2017 Canadian HR Reporter Readers’ Choice Winner in the categories of HR Management Solutions, Payroll Solutions, Recruitment Solutions, and Talent Management Solutions. The Readers’ Choice Awards highlight HR vendors and suppliers that the publication’s readers selected as their favorites.
“We are honored to be recognized by Canadian HR Reporter, and especially by HR professionals, who understand how UltiPro’s suite of products can best serve their employees, increase productivity, and help drive business growth,” said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate. “Ultimate is 100% focused on delivering innovative HCM technology and industry-leading service that puts people first.”
Since 1987, Canadian HR Reporter has served as Canada’s indispensable guide to human resources management. The publication offers its readership of nearly 35,000 HR professionals and business executives information on the latest trends, expert advice, and insights from HR practitioners, researchers, and resources.
“The Readers’ Choice Awards highlight HR vendors and suppliers that our readers selected as their favorites—the ones they think are the best at what they do,” said Todd Humber, publisher and editor-in-chief of Canadian HR Reporter. “This designation isn’t decided by a handful of judges behind closed doors, it is the decision of HR professionals, who cast more than 32,000 ballots this year.”
In determining this year’s winners, Canadian HR Reporter’s editorial team proposed nominees in each of the 51 categories based on criteria such as industry reputation and innovative practices. Most categories had 10 to 20 nominations. The three organizations receiving the most votes in each category were awarded the Readers’ Choice designation.
“We have designed UltiPro to address the specific needs of HR and payroll professionals,” said Greg Swick, chief global sales officer at Ultimate. “UltiPro can record key compliance information for federal, provincial, and territorial governments, handle hundreds of pay computations such as Canada/Quebec Pension Plan contributions, and generate year-end annual information returns required by the Canada Revenue Agency and Ministère du Revenu du Québec. We are pleased that this award acknowledges our commitment to providing businesses with the necessary technology for success.”
