DALLAS and CHICAGO (May 18, 2022) - Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has recently been named as one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois for the 12th consecutive year, ranking third in the Large Company category. This annual program is presented by the Best Companies Group and published by the Daily Herald Business Ledger. This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

“To be named to this list for 12 consecutive years is truly an incredible feat and a testament to our Illinois team’s commitment to pursuing excellence,” said Ryan Global President and Chief Operating Officer Ginny B. Kissling. “Thank you to our teams in Chicago, Downers Grove, and Oak Brook for creating a great workplace environment that displays the true spirit of Ryan.”

The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
