Leveraging the power of human difference

At Citrix, our values are at the center of all that we do. We celebrate a healthy mix of perspectives and welcome new ways of doing things. Diversity and inclusion, to us, is about leveraging the power of human difference for good. This injects life and passion into our inclusive culture, fueling the innovation necessary to enable the extraordinary.

Our people make Citrix special. It’s in large part what differentiates us from our competitors. Each of us contributes to the business not only our technical expertise but a spark of greatness influenced by our unique life experiences.

Diversity in action at Citrix

Winning together

Building great teams

Our diverse workforce spans multiple generations, speaks more than 35 languages, and lives and operates in more than 40 countries

As we collaborate with others who think and work differently, we break down barriers and overcome our preconceptions. It’s a powerfully creative process that allows us to innovate, makes our work more satisfying, and helps us better meet the needs of our customers.

Hiring practices

Citrix strives to find people who embody our core values. The rich and diverse environment exemplified at Citrix begins with recruiting and selecting great people. That's why our practices help us focus on the most important things. We start with efforts to attract a diverse set of candidates – people that are reflective of the makeup of our customers and communities. Our outreach efforts include attending conferences, job fairs, tech talks, community and university events. 

Compensation and benefits

Citrix provides fair and competitive benefits and compensation programs that meet the diverse needs of our employees. Our team spans the globe, with over half our workforce located outside of the United States, and we believe it is important to be consistent in how employees are rewarded. We have differences in our programs to meet competitive needs and comply with local customs and laws, and provide offerings that reflect local market practices. Each part of our compensation program encourages and rewards both individual performance and the company’s results.

Promoting work-life harmony

Citrix is continuously thinking in new ways about the relationship between work and our personal lives, and we believe that the future holds even more possibilities. The conversation used to be about work-life balance, where we would sacrifice either work or life (or both) to find that balance – it never really worked. The future of work is about work-life harmony. Picture this as an orchestra. All the different elements of our lives represent a different instrument and we are the conductors of our lives, creating a melody that works. At Citrix, this also means creating an environment that supports our employees through major life changes.

Citrix appreciates that every employee is unique and that each employee’s journey may be different. Employees who are considering or have decided to make a gender transition are fully embraced. They receive a support team to stand by their side and offer coaching and guidance. We have easily accessible tools and resources in place to empower the transitioning employee and their manager, teammates and colleagues.
