Press Release Jun 02, 2015

Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a global tax firm, has been included in the 50 Best Places to Work for New Dads report compiled by Fatherly, a digital lifestyle guide for men entering parenthood. With a growing demographic of active and engaged millennial fathers, this first-of-its-kind report highlights the best paternity benefits offered by leading companies in the United States focusing on factors that create a positive workplace for working dads and parents.

“Ryan is honored to have been recognized as a best place to work for new fathers,” said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. “We have also been acknowledged as a best place to work for working mothers, and this new accolade cements our reputation as an organization that understands how our employees’ personal freedom enhances, not deters from, superior client service.”

The companies chosen for this list were selected against a number of criteria that make for a strong and healthy workplace for working dads, including paternity leave, workplace flexibility, family support programs, company benefits, company culture, job security, and business growth.

Many of Ryan’s work policies are of great benefit to working fathers, including:

    • myRyan, the Firm’s flexible work environment designed to increase employee satisfaction by changing the measurement of work performance from hours worked to results achieved. Since rolling out myRyan, the Firm has dramatically improved employee retention and satisfaction, consistently increased revenue growth, and achieved the highest client satisfaction ratings in the history of the Firm.
    • Ryan encourages participation in health and wellness programs by offering incentives up to $130 a month.
    • Ryan offers new fathers a two-week paternity leave to encourage family bonding and support.
    • Ryan supports participation in the military by paying employees enlisted in the reserve the difference in the amount they receive from the government for their service and their regular wages for that period, for up to 18 months.
