Why Ansys IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Employees collaborate throughout our company by taking advantage of the “digital workplace” Ansys has built to empower employees to communicate about work while also developing deeper human connections with colleagues. Ansys has invested heavily in Office 365 (including Microsoft Teams for online collaboration and meetings); OneDrive for easy sharing of documents; and Yammer communities to share news with colleagues and discuss topics of interest such as photos of pets, DIY craft projects, and gorgeous landscape photos taken by employees worldwide! Our twice-weekly ARC Insider newsletter also delivers business and human-relations stories to make us all feel like ONE Ansys.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

Employees at our company have a positive vision for the future because Ansys software products are the leading tools that the brightest innovators around the world are using to invent the future. Our software is used by engineers who are developing autonomous automobiles, climate change solutions, digital twins of the human body (so your doctor can work with a patient-specific model of YOU to optimize healthcare outcomes), electric-powered aircraft, 5G communications, and aerospace and outer space innovations, to name a few. Currently, only a small fraction of engineers are using simulation software, so Ansys’ growth potential is unlimited!

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

We show respect and ensure that all voices are heard and ideas are valued throughout the company by supporting employee resource groups (ERGs) and encouraging them to provide insights and recommendations to leadership. Current Ansys ERGs include the Black Employee Network, the (dis)Ability Connection, the Latino Connection, the Pride Alliance, Veterans at Ansys, and Women in Tech.
In addition, the CEO holds monthly employee roundtable sessions to foster open dialogue and learn about employee perspectives.
Ansys managers can also attend communications training, with a strong emphasis on listening, seeking input from naturally quieter employees, and intentionally seeking diverse perspectives.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

We support our employees in achieving their professional and personal goals by encouraging everyone to complete a personal development plan to help them prepare for a new role, master a new skill, or learn about a new technical domain.
Ansys has many development programs in which employees can participate, including LinkedIn Learning courses, a first-time manager training program, the Ansys Inclusive Leadership Program that supports DEI&B, virtual personal coaching, the Ansys Digital Academy for learning technical skills, and a mentoring program for Women in Technology.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

Our company values are aligned with our employees because we have collaboratively discussed and published them for all to read in our Ansys Culture Book. After much deliberation involving employees from across the world, we concluded that our core company values are:
• Customer focus
• Innovation
• Mastery
• Sense of urgency
• Results & accountability
• Transparency & integrity
• Inclusiveness
• Collaboration & teamwork
Our Ansys Culture Book can be referred to by employees to ensure their actions and goals match the company’s values. When hiring new employees, our published values guide us to hire people who have demonstrated these values in the past.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

Programs and practices we give to our employees that create a Loved Workplace are:
• Flexible work arrangements. By encouraging flexibility, employees choose work arrangements that optimize their productivity.
• All-employee meetings. Every quarter Ansys executives recognize employees’ successes, welcome employees from new acquisitions, and celebrate employees’ significant work anniversaries.
• Annual sales kickoff meetings. These meetings set the stage for the year ahead and generate excitement by highlighting company goals and revealing new technology in Ansys’ portfolio.
• “Cinema & Snacks.” Employees gather weekly at Corporate HQ to watch a fun movie and enjoy freshly popped popcorn, creating a sense of community.

CEO Strengths

OUR CEO SERVES AS A MODEL OF OUR COMPANY VALUES BY …

Our CEO serves as a model of our company values by continuously enforcing them through his actions every day. In his communications to employees worldwide, he ensures that everyone in the company is included as he shares his thoughts, plans, and company results transparently and with great enthusiasm. He publicly recognizes the employees whose outstanding efforts have contributed to the company’s success; celebrates the collaboration and teamwork that have led to innovative solutions; and focuses on customers’ successes as a win-win for Ansys and the client. His 96% approval rating on Glassdoor shows that Ansys employees greatly value his leadership.

Our response to COVID-19

Throughout the pandemic, our employees’ health and safety always came first. After a lockdown period, we re-opened offices to employees who wanted to return, following governmental guidelines. Social distancing and masking were required. Hands-free door openers were installed, along with plastic shields between employee stations where needed.
We know that how we work is more important than where we work. We have not issued a “return to work” mandate. Employees and their managers individually determine optimal work arrangements.
Ninety-one percent of employees surveyed expressed feeling supported in adapting to changes in how we work due to the pandemic.
