Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect and property tax practices in North America, today announced that the Firm was ranked the best place to work in the entire state of Virginia. The 2014 Best Places to Work in Virginia program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor top companies that offer the best places of employment in Virginia, thereby benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and business environment. This highly selective competition is sponsored by Virginia Business magazine and Best Companies Group.
One hundred top companies were honored as the Best Places to Work in Virginia, and Ryan ranked first in the “Large Employer” category. This first-place ranking was the result of a rigorous two-part evaluation of Ryan’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics, combined with a comprehensive employee survey measuring the Firm’s work environment, culture, and employee pride and satisfaction. This extensive evaluation was conducted by the Best Companies Group, an independent firm dedicated to establishing “Best Places to Work,” “Best Companies,” and “Best Employers” programs in an effort to distinguish companies who are superior in creating and maintaining workplace excellence.
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 thrilled to be recognized as the very best place to work in Virginia and sincerely thank our associates across the state for this honor,” said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. “They have taken personal responsibility to deliver superior client service and results while demonstrating the power of workplace flexibility to companies across Virginia.”
