LONDON (25 Nov. 2020) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has been recognised as a Centre of Excellence in Wellbeing by Great Place to Work UK®, a global independent research and consulting firm focused on helping organisations build exceptional workplace cultures. This is the second consecutive year Ryan has been recognised as a Centre of Excellence, scoring a Wellbeing Index of 88%.
Recognition as a Centre 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 organisation must score a Wellbeing Index of 85% or more to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence.
“Ryan is delighted to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence in Wellbeing within its UK operations,” said Ryan President of European and Asia-Pacific Operations Jon C. Sweet. “Employee wellbeing is a fundamental element of an organisation’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.”
“Creating the best environment for our team to thrive is one of Ryan’s values,” said Ryan Chairman and CEO G. 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.”
Encompassing all the physical, psychological, social, and financial aspects of working life, Ryan continually invests time and effort into its employees’ wellbeing through a number of modern and pioneering programmes and initiatives. Programmes include myRyan, an innovative work environment focused on work performance and results achieved instead of hours worked; RyanPRIDE, a points-based recognition platform that drives engagement; RyanMatters, a portal for open and honest communication; RyanTHRIVE, a wellness initiative with programmes, classes, and competitions focused on the various aspects of employee wellbeing, and RyanINNOVATES, a forum for providing suggestions, which incorporates an employee voting system, to name a few.
