Ultimate's Chief People Officer Vivian Maza is proud of the company's recognition.
"Our people are our first priority, and we're focused every day on creating a culture where employees feel trusted, empowered, and supported in building their careers and growing as people—not only millennials, but all generations," Maza said. "We care for our employees like family and look to connect with them on a personal level. These survey results show that level of care resonates with our people, and they ‘pay it forward' through the innovative products and personalized service they consistently deliver to our customers."
