DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect tax practice in North America, today announced that the Firm was ranked the best place to work in the entire state of Pennsylvania. The Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor top companies that offer the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, thereby benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and business environment. This highly selective competition is sponsored by the Best Companies Group, the Central Penn Business Journal, the Pennsylvania Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) State Council, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, and the Team Pennsylvania Foundation.
One hundred top companies were honored as the Best Places to Work in Pennsylvania, and Ryan ranked first in the "Large Employer" category. This first-place ranking was the result of a rigorous two-part evaluation of Ryan's workplace policies, practices, and demographics, combined with a comprehensive employee survey measuring the Firm's work environment, culture, and employee pride and satisfaction. This extensive evaluation was conducted by the Best Companies Group, an independent firm dedicated to establishing "Best Places to Work," "Best Companies," and "Best Employers" programs in an effort to distinguish companies who are superior in creating and maintaining workplace excellence.
In August 2008, Ryan launched myRyan, an innovative work environment that changed the measurement of work performance from hours worked to results achieved. The Firm rolled out myRyan as a major culture shift designed to reach even higher levels of client service and employee satisfaction. Since its inception, myRyan has delivered tremendous dividends for the Firm, its clients, and its employees. Ryan has dramatically improved employee retention and satisfaction, while demonstrating solid year-over-year revenue growth. Most importantly, Ryan employees have achieved the highest client satisfaction ratings in the history of the Firm, while enjoying the freedom to meet the competing demands of work and life.

Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan.
