TORONTO (Feb. 18, 2019) – For the second consecutive year, Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, with offices in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and London, Ontario, announced the Firm has been named one of the Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion in Canada by Great Place to Work®.
Ryan earned this distinction by implementing a variety of initiatives that increase employee engagement and improve the team-member experience, including:
- myRyan, a collaborative and teamwork-oriented work environment that allows all employees to identify a balanced approach between work and personal life, making it possible to deliver the best results for the Firm
- RyanInnovates, a forum that provides employees the opportunity to offer suggestions for improving the workplace and business
- Leadership communications such as the CEO’s monthly “Team Talk,” which allows employees to ask questions directly of leadership, while the Chief People Officer’s “Morning Culture Moment” vlog provides a message of inspiration that reinforces Ryan’s culture of inclusiveness
“To make this list once again tells us our focus on our people and creating a positive culture is working,” said Ryan President of Canadian Operations Garry Round. “Knowing our associates throughout Canada believe they work for a Firm that welcomes and supports everyone who walks through our doors reaffirms our belief that when our people are a focal point, it leads to a happy, engaged, and inclusive work environment.”
To be eligible, organizations must be Great Place to Work-Certified™ in the past year, with at least 90 percent of employees agreeing they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics. In addition to Ryan’s second year on this list, the Firm has also been named to the overall Best Workplaces in Canada list for the past six years.
