Ansys joins Google, Samsung, Mattel, IBM, General Motors, Moderna, and many others
PITTSBURGH, PA, August 4, 2021 – Fast Company named Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) to its third annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. Ansys was named to the list for the launch of its Ansys® RaptorH™ product.
RaptorH is revolutionizing the development of system-on-chip (SoC) and 3D integrated circuits (3D-ICs), and it will be critical in the development of 6G technology, which is on track to emerge in the 2030s. The award also noted Ansys' investments in innovation, including research and development, along with other initiatives such as the inaugural Ansys Simulation World 2020 Virtual Conference.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2021 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. Working together, Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies. The 2021 awards feature workplaces from around the world with several of the honorees based outside the U.S.
"In our 50+ year history, Ansys’ product offerings have grown from mechanical engineering simulation solutions to fluid dynamics, electromagnetic, semiconductor, optics, materials and embedded software solutions used by designers and engineers in every industry," said Prith Banerjee, chief technology officer at Ansys. "This growth reflects the commitment of every Ansys employee to identify and tackle the most demanding challenges in the world using simulation. Fast Company’s recognition demonstrates Ansys’ dedication to continuous innovation, which enables us to satisfy our customers’ ever-growing needs with previously unimaginable software solutions.”
In 2020, despite the global pandemic, Ansys continued to invest in innovation across various aspects of the business. Two of the largest investments were in the form of capital that was deployed to continue to acquire companies that strengthen its portfolio and add incredible talent, along with valued customer relationships. Ansys also continued to make significant investments in research and development and to emphasize frequent, integrated product releases.
Ansys’ culture of innovation is supported by company-wide programs that keep growing every year, such as its internship program and CEO Innovation Awards, which recognize teams of engineers for product, technical and solutions innovation. Ansys also allots employees time to explore their ideas and encouraging them to patent those ideas. To date, Ansys has generated 523 patent assets, including 365 granted patents and 158 pending applications.
“These leaders and teams created cultures of innovation and sustained them, even as remote work extended into 2021,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “This newest list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators honors those organizations that found ways to collaborate and invent despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, ensuring employees were at the forefront.”
