Employee Resource Groups at Ansys: Bringing our whole selves to work

Challenge

As a global software company that has grown exponentially since our inception 50 years ago, we are aware of the role a diverse workforce plays in engaging our employees and meeting the challenges of our global customers across many markets.

We needed to build a sense of belonging for all employees to thrive and to inform our business on ways to attract, retain, and grow our diverse talent.

Actions

We formed employee-led resource groups with executive sponsors to build a sense of community and to inform our growing business.

Outcomes

We’ve grown from one to six ERGs in a year to include Women in Tech, Ansys Pride Alliance, Ansys Black Employee Network, (dis) Ability Network at Ansys, Veterans at Ansys, and the Ansys Latino Connection. As businesses within the business, they act on a global scale to build communities, inform us on talent attraction and retention strategies, and generate growth and development opportunities.

Our people are our strongest asset, and when they can bring their whole selves to work, we can continue to lead in product innovation and operational excellence.
