Ultimate Software (Nasdaq: ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that its
100th HR Workshop will be held on Thursday, April 24 at The Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. Ultimate Software started its HR Workshop program in 2008 as a strategic, collaborative way to bring together leaders in human resources, talent management, recruitment, compliance, training, and retention for a range of interactive sessions.
Since its inception, Ultimate’s HR Workshop program has assembled approximately 8,000 professionals from more than 11,500 companies in HR, payroll, finance, and IT throughout the U.S. and Canada. These peers interact in an intimate setting, identify both short- and long-term business drivers, share proven ideas, discuss and evaluate industry trends, and exchange innovative methodologies with one another.
In addition to its HR Workshops, Ultimate also supports HR, payroll, and IT professionals through its
HCM Online Academy—a free, online resource that provides options for distance learning. To date, more than 3,600 HR/payroll professionals have registered for Ultimate’s Online Academy where they have quick access to videos, white papers, third-party studies, and more.
