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 recognized as one of the 2011 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. This prestigious annual ranking was established in 2006 to identify, recognize, and honor the top 100 companies that offer the best places of employment in Texas, thereby benefitting the state's economy, workforce, and business environment.
The Best Companies to Work for in Texas Awards are sponsored by the Texas Monthly, Texas Association of Business, Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and Best Companies Group. Ryan was selected after a rigorous two-part evaluation of the Firm’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics, combined with a comprehensive employee survey measuring the Firm’s work environment, culture, and employee pride and satisfaction.
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 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.

Brint Ryan, CEO and Managing Principal of Ryan.
