Press Release Dec 20, 2017

Dallas, Texas – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, today announced that the Firm was selected by FORTUNE magazine as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity in 2017. This is the second year Ryan was recognized in FORTUNE’s annual list of companies that are doing the most to create an inclusive employee culture.   

Great Place to Work, an independent global research and consulting firm, evaluated feedback from more than 440,000 employees on more than 50 elements rating their workplace experiences. For the purposes of assessing the results and ranking the list, “diverse” employees were anyone who identified as a minority, female, LGBTQ, disabled, or who was born in 1964 or earlier. Great Place to Work compared the experiences these employees reported to that of their colleagues, as well as the degree of representation in their organizations.

“The Best Workplaces for Diversity have achieved something beyond basic fairness. They find ways to connect with each and every employee, listening to their challenges and building on their talents,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

“Earning this recognition as a premier workplace for diversity supports our ongoing efforts to attract and retain top talent that provides a myriad of individual perspectives and ideas,” said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. “This diverse set of employee experiences ensures that we continue to develop innovative and meaningful ways to deliver superior value and results for our clients.”
