Ultimate Software (ULTI), a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions in the cloud, announced today that its advanced employee survey and sentiment analysis solution, UltiPro Perception, has earned two Excellence in Technology 2018 awards from Brandon Hall Group. In the Workforce Management category, UltiPro Perception received a Gold Award for Best Advance in Assessment and Survey Technology, as well as a Silver Award for Best Advance in HR Predictive Analytics Technology.
UltiPro Perception empowers organizations to uncover not only what their people are saying, but also how they feel about work, leadership, and the company as a whole. Powered by Xander, Ultimate’s advanced portfolio of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, UltiPro Perception uses natural language processing and machine learning to analyze both structured and unstructured employee feedback and to provide real-time, unique insight into employees’ emotions, motivations, and key drivers for satisfaction. Organizations can build and deploy employee surveys with a mix of multiple-choice questions and open-ended responses, and leverage analytics and benchmarks to assess the engagement and effectiveness of individual teams and managers.
“There’s an increased focus, not to mention greater expectation, for organizations to deliver the best employee experience—everything from providing the right technology and workplace resources to offering impactful benefits packages to developing relevant goals for long-term success,” said Adam Rogers, chief technology officer at Ultimate. “Through its use of AI, machine learning, and more, UltiPro Perception is really revolutionizing the way companies can connect and build meaningful relationships with their employees. Executives, frontline managers, and HR leaders can all get at the heart of what really drives and matters most to their people, listen to that feedback as it’s provided, and then take timely action to ensure employees’ needs and goals are being met. We’re proud to be recognized by Brandon Hall Group for leading the way in employee survey and sentiment analysis technology, as we continue to design and deliver solutions that help organizations put their people first.”
