Ultimate Software, a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM) and employee experience solutions in the cloud, announced today that it has been named the 2019 Top Companies for Women Technologists Winner by AnitaB.org in the category of 1,000–10,000 technical employees. The national program recognizes companies building workplaces where women can thrive in technology, and Ultimate earned the highest overall score of any company in the medium-size category.
“It’s an honor for us to be named one of the Top Companies for Women Technologists by AnitaB.org,” said Vivian Maza, chief culture officer at Ultimate. “At Ultimate, we believe all people deserve the opportunity for personal and professional fulfilment. Women still face a range of challenges throughout tech and other industries, but we continue to improve as a greater society and recognize the critical value of women as visionaries, leaders, innovators, mentors, and—above all—as people. As we focus on a more inclusive future, Ultimate will always work relentlessly to ensure equity in all its forms.”
Now in its ninth year, AnitaB.org’s Top Companies for Women Technologists program analyzes data on representation, employee experience, programs, and policies so that companies can continue to build more inclusive workplaces. The 2019 report for Ultimate highlighted several company policies that support its female employees, including:
- Paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave, with $10,000 (per child) in financial assistance to help cover legal costs associated with adoption
- Unlimited PTO program, as well as opportunities for remote work and flexible schedules
- Pay-equity policy for equal pay by gender, with annual audits to monitor policy execution
- Leadership-development programs for women at all levels, including Ultimate’s Women in Leadership and Women in Technology Community of Interest groups offering opportunities for mentorship, networking, and volunteering in the community
More than 75 companies participated in AnitaB.org’s 2019 program, representing over 143,000 women technologists. Each company received a score based on several metrics, such as representation of women at all job levels, as well as the recruitment, retention, and advancement rates of women at these companies. Ultimate received the top score of all companies in its category and was announced as a Winner during AnitaB.org’s Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing conference in Orlando, Florida, on October 2.
