WESTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2018. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 10th year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments, and companies via the jobs marketplace and reviews site Glassdoor.
“From day one, we’ve put people first above all else. This honor is a powerful testament to the way we take care of our employees, every day,” said Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate. “By making our people Ultimate’s top priority, we believe we’re able to attract the best talent in the industry. In turn, our employees continue to deliver innovative HCM solutions, and support our customers as lifelong partners.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide can share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, which is designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work in particular roles at specific companies. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their overall satisfaction with the company, and key workplace factors such as career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work-life balance, senior management, company culture, and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies, as well as any downsides.
“We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more. To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognize employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best—the employees,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. “Employers where employees love to work continue to prove that they have a recruiting and business performance advantage. We’re proud to celebrate the 2018 winners as we mark our 10th anniversary of the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.”
Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work for 2018 were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. To be considered for the large category, a company must have at least 1,000 employees and have received at least 75 ratings across eight workplace attributes from U.S.-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality, and consistency of reviews.
