LONDON (30 April 2020) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces, ranking number two among the most employee-centric companies in the Small Company category. This prestigious recognition programme, sponsored by Great Place to Work Institute, represents the most definitive employer-of-choice and workplace culture quality recognition a company can receive. This is the first time Ryan has been recognised as a UK Best Workplace.
“This honour reflects our continued commitment to create a work environment that is focused on employee satisfaction and well-being, built on trust and passion,” said Ryan President of European and Asia-Pacific Operations Jon C. Sweet. “Our team members are driving incredible UK and European growth, while demonstrating the power that employee freedom and flexibility have on business results.”
“Being selected to the UK’s Best Workplaces list is the crowning achievement in our effort to attract and retain the finest professionals in Europe and across the globe,” said Ryan Chairman and CEO G. Brint Ryan. “I thank every Ryan associate in the United Kingdom for this honour and for their daily commitment to delivering the highest levels of client service, value, and results in our industry today.”
Understanding the perspective of employees is key to building a successful workplace environment. The winning companies are selected and ranked based on an extensive, anonymous employee Trust Index Survey® and Culture Audit®. Hundreds of thousands of employees are questioned related to their attitudes about a wide range of business functions, including management’s credibility, job satisfaction, pay, benefits, internal communications, and hiring practices.
“The companies listed as the UK’s Best Workplaces have the strongest evidence of employee engagement and the best employee-centric management practices and programmes in the United Kingdom,” said Mr. Sweet. “As a result, these companies are achieving business success through positive workplace cultures, less employee turnover, higher levels of client satisfaction and loyalty, and higher productivity.”
