Vivian Maza of Ultimate Software is part of Human Resources Director Canada's Hot List 2018
Chief people officer
Vivian Maza and the Ultimate Software people team celebrated a landmark year in 2017, hiring the company’s 4,000th employee and achieving a record-high seventh-place ranking on Fortune’s annual 100 Best Companies to Work For list. The company was also named the number-one Best Place to Work for Women in Technology. Within the past year, the Ultimate Software people team also managed to successfully implement a new program to cover the costs of IVF, a major addition to its existing 100% employer-paid healthcare coverage for employees.
Maza and the rest of the team are anticipating an action-packed year ahead, as Ultimate Software is on track to become a $1 billion company. “Being one of the original four employees, I’ve seen firsthand how much we’ve grown in our 27-year history,” Maza says. “One thing hasn’t changed is our commitment to putting people first. In 2018, we’ll continue to care for our employees every day; protect our workplace culture; focus on delivering innovative HR, payroll and talent technology; and work to make a meaningful difference in our community.”
