workAnywhere: Exchanging Our Desks for Improved Collaboration and Engagement at Citrix

with The Organizational Readiness Team at Citrix:

Mark Goodman -- Sr. Director Planning

Amy Haworth -- Group Manager Organizational Readiness

Deb Brown, Janice Toledo, Yanessa Sanchez, and Lauren Tobon -- Org Readiness Managers


Citrix employees in the Business Technology Solutions group are literally living the brand promise to work and play from anywhere. The journey towards being desk-free involved a thorough change management plan and a strong sponsor. In this presentation, we’ll dive into the drivers for workAnywhere implementations, the change plan that led to 91% of employees saying unassigned seating is a change for the better, and the impact on the team’s culture – especially in the areas of collaboration and engagement.

  • Experience Citrix’s workAnywhere philosophy!
  • Tour the workspace and see how it works!
  • Learn about the expected and unexpected benefits the department leaders realized!
  • Find out how the right attention to preparing the people enabled this massive change to be a quick success!

This topic could serve as an excellent forum for Organization Development folks to show their clients the difference that a carefully planned change effort can make.

The Organizational Readiness team at Citrix is a group whose team members have diverse backgrounds including Project Management, Web Content Management, Psychology, Business Analysis, and Infrastructure. Positioned within the IT and Real Estate department, the team’s scope includes initiatives focused on  four “big rocks”: preparing people for  system and process change, increasing employees’ ability to lead and manage change, managing organizational events, and maximizing the effectiveness of departmental communication.
