Belong to Something Bigger: A Culture of Inclusivity at the World-Leading Simulation Company

Belong to Something Bigger: A Culture of Inclusivity at the World-Leading Simulation Company
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on August 18, 2022

“We thrive by changing reality.”

That’s the value Ansys — the global leader in engineering simulation — lives by. For over 50 years, Ansys has energized, inspired and partnered with the world’s top innovators to design next-generation products and advancements that are “limited only by the imagination.” If you’ve ever seen a rocket launch, flown on an airplane, driven a car, used a computer, touched a mobile device, crossed a bridge, or put on wearable technology, chances are you’ve used a product where Ansys software played a critical role in its creation.

And behind every life-changing simulation solution is a human being dedicated to making the world better. This is the Ansys culture, where over 5,100 global employees represented across 23 countries, and more than 80 global locations, come together to fuel new ideas, build relationships and help one another reach their greatest potential.

“Our ideas know no boundaries — and neither do we,” the company says. And, by offering opportunities around the world, crossing sectors like Aerospace, Military, Automotive, Construction, Energy, Healthcare, Sports and beyond, Ansys is living their purpose as the No. 1 company in engineering simulation.
Building a culture of belonging where everyone thrives
As a leader in global tech, Ansys is on a mission to build diverse teams and close the gender gap in tech. Mentoring and learning opportunities are just a few of the ways that they support growth and development for women across the globe. The company also supports future women engineers through philanthropic activities, partnering with organizations like Girls Who Code and encouraging employees to mentor through IEEE’s TryEngineering program

Inclusiveness is also central to Ansys’ philosophy and practices. “We know that our diversity makes us stronger,” the company says. And this goes beyond simple inclusion — Ansys seeks out a variety of backgrounds and perspectives

“We believe every person should feel and know they belong here,” Ansys adds. “As we evolve on our inclusion journey, we continue to learn how to involve more unique perspectives and actively invite participation from everyone. We seek input and guidance from everyone along the way. We know that we can learn and grow together to make our community a better place for all.”

To that end, employee resource groups (ERGs) at Ansys exist to create inclusive communities. Employees with common backgrounds and experiences are able to connect in support of organizational change, inform the business and learn from one another. A few of their ERGs include:

● Black Employee Network
● (dis)Ability Network
● Latino Connection
● Pride Alliance
● Veterans at Ansys
● Women in Technology

Learning at the heart of a smart culture
Human beings innovate when they learn together. At the heart of Ansys’ culture is a commitment to supporting all employees through career growth and development at every stage. From inclusive leadership skills and teaming skills, to management essentials, team building, and robust technical learning paths available to stay current, Ansys knows that keeping smart people engaged requires a constant focus on learning, growing, and developing strong skills together.
Product design for an inclusive world
Part of an inclusive culture is learning how to mitigate biases in the workplace. These principles are infused directly in how Ansys solves problems for customers and how products are designed, extending learnings across industries and countries.

Through their dedicated efforts, Ansys ensures all employees know that they belong. “Our culture of belonging is coded into everything that we do,” Ansys says. “Across the globe, we come together as ONE Ansys to be unstoppable, creative and better for it.”

Together, team members fuel new ideas, build relationships and help one another realize their potential. This allows them to build transformational products that appeal to diverse consumers.

The company also provides comprehensive benefits and competitive salaries. As evidence of Ansys’ commitment to employee well-being, they provide flexible work arrangements, paid time off, volunteer time off, charitable giving, wellness programs and much more.
Building the future of talent.
Ansys knows that in the world of innovation, it’s important to keep looking ahead. That’s why, every year, the company selects a group of students to work directly with their software products and leading experts.

“This is your chance to unlock your future and make a real-world impact,” the company says of the student and internship opportunities.

Talented individuals will receive paid compensation, real-world experience, instruction by industry experts, team building and collaboration, training and development and full-time hiring consideration upon completion.

“I’ve learned the importance of communication and learning from those around you,” Daphnie, Mechanical Engineering Intern, said of the experience. “My engineering knowledge has been pushed in creative ways while exploring the new software.” This is reflective of the broader culture at Ansys.
