When a company has been growing for more than 50 years, it naturally gains a reputation. Ansys is proud of the great reputation we have in the marketplace, and of the awards we’ve won for our work environment and corporate responsibility. However, to help solve the world’s grand challenges, we cannot rest on our accolades. As Socrates is credited with saying: “The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear.” In other words “if you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk.”
One of our latest endeavors along those lines is refreshing our mission statement and values. This is where we “talk the talk” to let everyone know who we are.
Our mission: Powering innovation that drives human advancement.
When visionary companies need to know how their world-changing ideas will perform, they close the gap between design and reality using Ansys simulation. For more than 50 years, Ansys software has enabled innovators across industries to push the boundaries of product design by using the predictive power of simulation. From sustainable transportation and advanced satellite systems to life-saving medical devices, Ansys powers innovation that drives human advancement.
Those six words — “powering innovation that drives human advancement” — are both focused and far-reaching, much like our simulation solutions and services that can help you zero in on a specific problem while enabling you to discover potential you didn’t know existed.
To codify who we are and who we continue to strive to be every day — for ourselves, our customers, and the world — we have made four key commitments and are focused on four values. We commit to:
Our values are: adaptability, courage, generosity, and authenticity.
We “walk the walk” by turning those commitments and values into these actions.
Lest you think those are just pixels on a screen, let us share some real-world examples of how Ansys fulfills its mission and lives up to its commitments by both living our values and supporting our customers’ innovation.
Change is a constant, and for many companies, digital transformation embodies that mantra. It describes how companies are responding to rapidly evolving customer expectations by embedding technology across their people and processes to drive new business models and revenue streams. One way Ansys helps companies embrace digital transformation is via a systematic Simulation Transformation Assessment that reviews how simulation is being leveraged to impact a company’s overall goals. The in-depth assessment results in customized best practices for adapting to digital transformation. Learn how companies like BorgWarner, Sub-Zero Group, and TE Connectivity have benefitted from the Ansys Simulation Assessment methodology.
Boldly going where no one has gone before is becoming more and more common, thanks to technological advances. The Artemis Moon mission could pave the way for humankind to live and work on the Moon. The Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) was designed to study whether hitting an asteroid could alter its orbit enough to protect Earth, should the need ever arise. The James Webb Space Telescope is transforming our understanding of the universe. All of these missions and more use Ansys solutions to make sure they get it right the first time, because there are rarely any second chances in space.
Ansys supports the wider engineering community in many ways. Here are just a sample:
The 5,500 plus Ansys global employees bring different skills, backgrounds, and perspectives to work. We create a culture of belonging that enables employees’ unique experiences to be shared. Through our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), we reinforce our values of inclusion, belonging, and innovation. Our ERGs are self-organized, fully inclusive networks that enable our employees to make a big impact. Employees with common backgrounds and experiences connect in support of organizational change, to inform our business, and learn from one another. Each of our ERGs have executive sponsors who listen to the needs of the group, advocate on behalf of the ERG, strategize, and direct resources.
Through words and deeds, Ansys has built a strong reputation. Our new mission and value statements help to ensure that reputation continues to grow. After all, our customers and employees amaze us every day by powering innovation that drives human advancement. If you would like to join us, visit our careers page.
