Storm and Emergency Preparedness Information

Citrix Storm and Emergency Preparedness Summary

Florida Corporate Offices

Please exercise personal discretion in the event that your individual circumstances require additional time for storm or emergency preparations. Employees may use available PTO if additional time away from work is necessary. Employees on scheduled PTO at time of temporary office closure will receive regularly scheduled PTO pay and may receive additional pay afterwards up to the time the office reopens (additional pay for any office closing is at the sole discretion of Citrix and is not guaranteed). 

How will I know if the office is closed?

Citrix uses a crisis communication system called Everbridge to reach out to all of our employees. This tool will deliver up to date information on office closures via SMS text, mobile calls / messages and email. The GSO will continue with regular updates and will indicate when the office is scheduled to re-open. Be sure to check and update your Workday and Outlook contact information, so your personal and emergency information is up to date. Employees should ensure the safety of their families and dwellings as a priority.

Check regularly for updates after severe weather for facility closures and before reporting to work.
