Ryan Named to FORTUNE's 100 Best Companies to Work For® List; Ranks Among Elite Group of Premier Workplaces in the United States

Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a leading global tax services firm, has been selected to the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list. This prestigious recognition program, sponsored by FORTUNE magazine and the Great Place to Work Institute, represents the most definitive employer-of-choice and workplace culture quality recognition a company can receive. This marks the second time that Ryan has been recognized by FORTUNE.

“Being selected to the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® list is the crowning achievement in our effort to attract and retain the finest professionals by providing a flexible and employee-centric work culture,” said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. “I thank every Ryan associate for this honor and for their daily commitment to delivering the highest level of client service, value, and results available in our industry today.”

The winning companies are selected based on the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Hundreds of firms participate in the survey, and more than 252,000 employees at those companies are surveyed, responding to questions related to their attitudes about a wide range of business functions, including management’s credibility, job satisfaction, pay, benefits, internal communications, and hiring practices.

“The companies listed have the highest levels of trust, have the strongest evidence of employee engagement, and demonstrate the best applied management practices and programs in the United States,” said Mr. Ryan. “As a result, these companies are achieving greater levels of business success through positive workplace cultures and are demonstrating better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of client satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity, and enhanced public perception.”

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.

“A new type of 21st century company is emerging,” said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “It is transforming how business is done both internally and externally. It understands that a high-trust work culture results in higher productivity, increased engagement and better financial performance. These factors ultimately lead to a competitive advantage and enable companies to quickly bounce back from challenging situations. The 100 best companies set the standard for businesses.”

The list will be published in the March 15th issue of FORTUNE magazine. A complete list of the winning companies can be found here.
