Work is more mobile than ever. Many of us start our days by scanning
news on tablets and continue checking email, reviewing our calendars and
preparing for meetings on smartphones as we commute. When we hit the
office, we may stop at our desks briefly before heading to a conference
room. Schroders recognizes this new reality. And with the help of Citrix
Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS), the global asset management firm and 2019
Citrix Innovation Award finalist is transforming
the traditional work model and forging a more flexible and modern
way to get things done.
As a forward-thinking, innovative company, Schroders got on the digital
bandwagon years ago and moved to put technology and data at the center
of everything they do. “Fundamentally, we wanted to reimagine the
workspace,” said Stewart Carmichael, CTO, Schroders. “And to make that
happen, we needed to create a digital experience and technology to
Using Citrix digital
workspace solutions, Schroders launched an initiative known as S3 –
Schroders anywhere, anytime, any device.
“What we are trying to create here at Schroders is an inclusive and
collaborative environment and flexibility is key,” said Emma Holden,
Global Head of Human Resources, Schroders. “Citrix allows our people to
access the right technologies and solutions when they need to access
them. And that makes them more productive and happy and allows us to get
them best from them.”
Harry Jack, Head of Pan European Equity Research, Schroders, can attest
to this. “The technology allows you to learn and collaborate and do your
work without any frustrations or barriers,” he said.
Stephanie Chang, ESG Integration Manager, Schroders, agrees. “Using the
technology is actually easy. You access your desktop exactly as you left
it, which is great because when you head into meetings, you’re ready to
go,” she said.
In addition, Citrix solutions are helping Schroders attract and retain
talent in a labor market that is tighter than it has ever been. “I have
a health situation that I need to manage on a daily basis, so I work
three days a week from the office and one day a week from home,” said
Penny Hope, Carmichael’s Chief of Staff. “Without the flexibility and
the technology set up that we have, I would not be able to do my job.”
And this, says Carmichael is what technology at Schroders is all about.
“Our greatest asset is our talent and we’ve got to unlock all of their
innovation and the capability that they have and empower them,”
Carmichael said. “And with Citrix, we can.”
