Ryan Named One of the Best Workplaces in Chicago for Fourth Consecutive Year

CHICAGO (May 24, 2021)Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has recently been selected as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Chicago™ by Great Place to Work®. This marks the fourth consecutive year the Firm has been named to this prestigious list. The Best Workplaces in Chicago award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 30,000 current employees across the United States.

“We are so grateful for our dedicated team members who have made us a part of this list for the past four years,” said Ginny B. Kissling, Ryan Global President and Chief Operating Officer. “The Windy City is filled with many incredible companies and professional opportunities, so we thank our Chicago team for making Ryan a truly special work environment and industry leader each and every day.”

Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, manages the highly competitive Best Workplaces in Chicago program and selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their roles are within the organization.

“The Best Workplaces in Chicago are made up of great leaders who are about their people,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This exclusive group has created cultures where one’s background has no influence on whether you are treated with respect, fairness, and credibility. These companies can expect better business results thanks to their high-trust, inclusive workplaces.”
