Ultimate Software Named to List of Top Companies That Promote and Foster Ethical Business Practices

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that the company has been named as a top leader in ethical businesses policies in “Good Business: 10 Companies with Ethical Corporate Policies,” an article posted on Minyanville.com, an Emmy Award-winning destination site for the professional and active trading and investing audience with more than 1.3 million unique visitors and 8 to 10 million visitors per month.

“There are plenty of companies that hold themselves to a higher standard and show respect for the world around them,” said Anthony Shields, writer for Minyanville.com. “From having the best employee benefits to the championing of education and the environment, this list honors the companies with stellar moral practices.”

Ultimate was singled out for its treatment of its employees such as 100% free healthcare and complete coverage for all dependents as well as a great deal of diversity in its hiring practices. In addition to Ultimate, other businesses on the list included Ultimate customers Google and NuStar Energy as well as Microsoft, Starbucks, Goldman Sachs, Intel, and Salesforce.com. Ultimate also received recognition earlier this year when it was ranked #9 on FORTUNE's list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.”

According to Scott Scherr, CEO, president, and founder of Ultimate Software, the company was built and continues to stand on a philosophical foundation of putting people first and doing the right thing. “We encourage our employees to respect and earn the trust of others,” said Scherr.

“We believe that because we treat our employees well, they will in turn treat our customers well. Our customers continually confirm that our people-centric philosophy has brought significant value to their organizations and their workforce. We’re proud that our company is fulfilling our commitment to our employees and our thousands of customers, and we’re very happy to have received this recognition from Minyanville.com.”
