Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect tax practice in North America, today announced that the Firm’s Austin, Texas office was named to the 2011 Austin Statesman Top Workplaces List for the second year in a row. This prestigious award recognizes Austin companies with the best employee work cultures and was based on employees’ opinions of company management, benefits, compensation, environment, motivation, and growth opportunities. Selecting the premier companies on this list involved anonymous surveys of 15,731 workers from 143 Austin employers conducted by WorkplaceDynamics LLP, an independent firm specializing in employee engagement studies. Ryan was one of only 85 businesses that were honored based on their outstanding reputations for workplace climate and employee commitment, ranking 14th in the Small Company category.
