For three decades now, Ultimate has placed its people initiatives at the centre of its corporate vision. In February, it was also honoured on the list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, also compiled by Fortune and Great Place to Work. Ultimate ranked #2 overall – the company’s highest-ever ranking on the U.S.-based list.

Ultimate is celebrated widely for its unique corporate culture, providing employees with “fulfilling and meaningful work, abundant opportunities for career development, extraordinary benefits, and positive employee experiences at all levels of the organization.”

The company covers 100% of the healthcare premiums (medical, dental and vision) of employees and their families; matches employees’ 401(k) and RRSP contributions at 45% dollar-for-dollar up to federal limits; gives employees unlimited paid time off; and provides up to three paid service days annually for volunteering at non-profit organizations of their choice.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ultimate has continued to look after its people.

Employees who are balancing parental duties with their work received the additional benefit of a free virtual summer camp for kids, access to online tutors, and a wealth of educational and entertaining content for their younger children.

Millennial workers have also had the opportunity to chat regularly with senior citizens through an InterGen Pilot Program.

“Over the past several months, like millions of people around the world, we’ve had to navigate a wave of uncertainty. But it’s during these times when we realize how strong we are and how resilient our culture can be,” Almeda said.

“We’ve learned to remain steadfast, adapt to changing norms, and never lose sight of what really matters – caring for people,” he said.
