Ryan Wins 2011 Dallas Business Journal Best Places to Work Award

Press Release Oct 05, 2011

Dallas, Texas -- Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect tax practice in North America, today announced that the Firm’s Dallas, Texas office was ranked tenth in the Medium Business category of the Dallas Business Journal’s 2011 Best Places to Work list. Each year, the Dallas Business Journal releases this prestigious list recognizing Dallas/Fort Worth businesses and organizations based upon rigorous evaluations of workplace policies, practices, and demographics, combined with comprehensive employee surveys measuring work environment, culture, and employee pride and satisfaction.

Ryan was one of only 52 businesses that were honored for this recognition, conducted by Quantum Workplace, an independent research firm that administers the Best Places to Work survey. “It was a tough year to soar to the top of the 2011 Best Places to Work charts,” states the Dallas Business Journal. “Competition was fierce, in a not-really-recovering economy. All 52 North Texas-based businesses that were named winners have certain things in common. When talking about their company culture, they use words like trust, loyalty, respect, and engagement.”

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.

“We are proud and honored that our corporate headquarters is recognized as the tenth best place to work in Dallas/Fort Worth,” said G. Brint Ryan, CEO and Managing Principal of Ryan. “Our employees are given incredible workplace flexibility and freedom, and continuously respond with the delivery of superior client service and results.”
