As one of the judges for the Stevie Awards noted, "Ansys' effort to orchestrate such a complicated, technically difficult and logistically challenging event was very impressive... but more impressive was the fact they were able to successfully execute the event. Given the time pressure, COVID-19 and the fact that so many clients, peers and industry leaders would be participating, this is quite an impressive accomplishment. Well done!"

"When the COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from connecting at physical conferences, our team brought together executives, designers and analysts from leading-edge Fortune 500 companies, startups and academic institutions to virtually inspire each other with examples of product development agility and innovation,” said Lynn Ledwith, vice president of marketing for Ansys. “I am proud of the more than 200 speakers, 65 sponsors and 800 Ansys employees who collaborated to make our virtual event such a success."

More than 90 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's Stevie Award winners.

"In the fifth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who - during the crises we've confronted this year - continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2020 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2021," said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.
