United States : Citrix Opens New State-of-the-Art Office in Downtown Raleigh.

Citrix today announced the grand opening of its new office in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh. Citrix transformed an abandoned warehouse into a 170,000 square-foot new-generation modern workplace designed to stimulate creativity, collaboration, productivity, and employee engagement. The environmentally-forward workplace design, combined with Citrix Mobile Workspace technologies, embodies and underscores the company s core vision of the mobility-transformed business that allows people to work better and live better.

The unique spaces in the workplace range from open booths in high-traffic areas that invite passersby to spontaneously collaborate; to conference areas made out of retrofitted transatlantic shipping containers; to meeting spaces in a rooftop garden that remove the employee from the day-to-day frenzy of the office environment and inspire creativity. This new workplace, integrated with Citrix technologies, is an expression of what business customers need: new levels of flexibility to drive change; creative space to amplify collaborative, design-led thinking; support for a culture of work-life balance and healthy lifestyles that enable greater employee engagement.

Citrix business in Raleigh started with the acquisition of the company s secure file sync and sharing solution, ShareFile. Since the company s acquisition of ShareFile in the fourth quarter of 2011, ShareFile revenue has quadrupled and has become a core element of the company s overall solution. Jesse Lipson, who founded ShareFile, continues to drive the vision for this rapidly expanding business and the company s commitment to the local community. Moving forward, the company is expanding the Raleigh location to include all Citrix teams, and be a central hub for local customers, partners, and the entire Citrix ecosystem.

This innovative perspective is reflected in the revitalization of downtown Raleigh. The downtown area is evolving into a modern urban location for tech businesses, restaurants and shops. The Citrix Raleigh location will be able to accommodate up to 900 employees, and offers amenities designed to attract, motivate and retain high-performing employees. These include a storage facility for 80 bicycles, along with a bicycle exchange program that offers employees the chance to ride to lunch or run errands during the day. The building further enhances employee life with a game room full of activities chosen by employee vote, including a racquetball court, basketball court, fitness center, yoga studio and bocce ball courts. In addition, as a socially responsible corporation, Citrix developed the building with the community and the environment in mind.
