Ryan's Amsterdam Office Named to Netherlands 2015 Great Place to Work® List; Ranks Among Elite Group of Premier Dutch Workplaces

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Ryan, a leading global tax services firm, has been named to the 2015 Great Place to Work® list in the Netherlands. Only 42 companies in the entire country were honored, and Ryan ranked fourth in the Small and Young Enterprise category in its first time competing for this recognition.

“Being selected to the Great Place to Work® list is a distinct honor and bolsters our efforts to attract and retain the most talented professionals in our industry and throughout the Netherlands,” said Suzanne den Breems, Ryan Principal and Netherlands Practice Leader.

The annual Great Place to Work® list recognizes and celebrates employee-centric organizations based on employee survey responses 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 premier companies on the list represent the best workplaces in the Netherlands and are highly attractive to employees in the job market.

“We ask the opinion of employees on five values: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. These values are linked to performance,” said Erik Reed, Director of Great Place to Work® Netherlands.

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.
