Florida Trend Magazine Names Ryan One of the 2021 100 Best Companies to Work for in Florida

Press Release Aug 18, 2021

For the fifth time in the Firm’s history, Ryan has been named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Florida by Florida Trend magazine.

ORLANDO, Fla. (Aug. 18, 2021) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has recently been named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Florida by Florida Trend magazine, ranking number 15 in the Best Large Companies category. This marks the fifth time the Firm has been named to this annual list.

To participate, companies were required to have at least 15 workers in Florida and be in operation at least one year. Those companies then underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

“To be recognized as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Florida is a tremendous honor and speaks to the strong culture our team members have created,” said Ryan Global President and Chief Operating Officer Ginny B. Kissling. “We appreciate the dedication and commitment of our Florida team who have helped make Ryan an industry-leading workplace in the Sunshine State.”

“It was interesting to see how the Best Companies plan to operate, going forward, as the pandemic’s threat wanes,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard. “Many of our Best Companies are ‘high-touch’ companies that rely on collaboration among their employees and/or face-to-face contact with their clients. And most indicated they intended to return to traditional in-office operations. But it’s also clear that many have found that the company’s performance didn’t suffer greatly with employees working from home. Most firms indicated they’re willing to give employees more flexibility in being able to work at home at least some of the time.”

The Best Companies to Work for in Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey, and analysis and determined the final rankings.
