Ryan Recognised as a Centre of Excellence in Wellbeing by Great Place to Work UK

DALLAS and LONDON (Nov. 25, 2020)Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has been recognized as a Center of Excellence in Wellbeing by Great Place to Work UK®, a global independent research and consulting firm focused on helping organizations build exceptional workplace cultures. This is the second consecutive year Ryan has been recognized as a Center of Excellence, scoring a Wellbeing Index of 88%.

Recognition as a Center of Excellence in Wellbeing is decided based on the Great Place to Work® Wellbeing Index employee survey, which is designed to measure the levels of cultural health in the workplace. The survey seeks employeesʼ experiences and perspectives on six key dimensions that underpin wellbeing, including work environment, financial security, mental and physical health, interpersonal relationships, work-life balance, and fulfilment at work. An organization must score a Wellbeing Index of 85% or more to be recognized as a Center of Excellence.

Sweet. “Employee wellbeing is a fundamental element of an organization’s culture, and Ryan is committed to going above and beyond to meet its employees’ evolving needs, even more so during this year’s unprecedented challenges.”

Brint Ryan. “We encourage each team member to perform to his or her fullest potential, inside and outside the workplace, which in turn drives business results and personal achievements. Ryan is proud of the environment we have created for our employees in the UK and collectively around the world.”
