Press Release Nov 09, 2009

Dallas, Texas -- Ryan, the leading tax services firm in North America, with the largest transaction tax practice in the United States and Canada, today announced that the Firm was ranked number 51 in the 2009 Dallas Morning News Top 100 Places to Work survey. This prestigious ranking recognizes model employers in Dallas-Fort Worth that have created workplace environments that nurture and respect employees, and in the process make those employees proud to work there.

The ranking was compiled, weighted, and ranked by The Dallas Morning News’ research partner Workplace Dynamics, LLC through an independent survey of 33,304 Dallas-Fort Worth employees who offered opinions and insights into their companies. The winners were evaluated and ranked by employee responses to their company’s performance in key areas that included company direction, opportunities for career growth, strength of leadership, pay and benefits, workplace flexibility, and more. Ryan’s recognition was a direct result of feedback from its Dallas-based employees, 90% of whom responded to the independent web-based survey.

In August 2008, Ryan launched myRyan, an innovative work environment that changed the measurement of work performance from hours worked to results achieved. The Firm rolled out myRyan to 800 employees across North America and Europe as a major culture shift designed to reach even higher levels of client service and employee satisfaction. Since its inception, myRyan has delivered tremendous dividends for the Firm, its clients, and its employees. Ryan has dramatically improved employee retention and satisfaction, while demonstrating solid year-over-year revenue growth. Most importantly, Ryan employees have achieved the highest client satisfaction ratings in the history of the Firm, while enjoying the freedom to meet the competing demands of work and life.

"We are honored to be recognized with yet another award for our innovative work environment, and especially proud that our employees were the driving force behind our selection as one of the Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas-Fort Worth," said G. Brint Ryan, CEO and Managing Principal of Ryan. "Our employees are given incredible flexibility and freedom, and they have responded by producing superior results for our clients, as well as our Firm."
