Ryan Receives Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for Excellence in Human Capital ManagementDALLAS (Sept. 8, 2020) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, won a prestigious Brandon Hall Group bronze award for excellence in Human Capital Management (HCM) in the category of Best Benefits, Wellness, and Well-Being Program.

Ryan’s innovative employee wellness program, RyanTHRIVE, provides opportunities for employees to engage in a variety of classes and programs promoting fitness, nutrition, time management, stress reduction, and financial health.

“Ryan is honored to receive a bronze award from the Brandon Hall Group in the Best Benefits, Wellness, and Well-Being Program category,” said Ryan’s Global President and Chief Operating Officer Ginny B. Kissling. “We are committed to providing meaningful opportunities for our employees’ overall well-being through RyanTHRIVE, which is one of our most important platforms and a favorite among our team. The programs and classes available through RyanTHRIVE have been especially helpful this year, as our employees navigate the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Organizations around the world highly value Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards—so much so that we received a record number of applications during a global pandemic,” said Rachel Cooke, Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program. “The awards provide valuable recognition and validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to both employers and employees.”

Entries for Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards are evaluated by a panel of independent, senior industry experts, analysts, and executives and are based on the following criteria: design, functionality, innovation, and overall measure of benefits. Winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference in January 2021.
