TORONTO, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with Canadian offices in Toronto, Montreal, and Calgary, has been named one of Canada's Best Workplaces by the Great Place to Work® Institute. This premier ranking represents the most definitive employer-of-choice and workplace culture quality recognition a company can receive. Ryan ranked 15th in the Large and Multinational Workplace category, placed sixth in the Workplaces for Women category, and received top honors for achieving the highest scores in the respect and credibility dimensions that are assessed for each company.
"These organizations have the highest levels of trust and strongest evidence of employee engagement, and demonstrate the best applied management practices and programs in Canada," said Garry Round, President, Canadian Operations and Principal at Ryan. "We are thrilled to be included, especially since our focus on positive workplace culture has demonstrably led to increasing levels of business success."
This success manifests itself as better financial performance, less employee turnover, higher levels of client satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity, and enhanced public perception.
"It's an honor to be chosen as a top employer in Canada, and this award upholds our ongoing drive to create an employee-centric culture," said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. "We've discovered that the best way to serve our clients is to ensure we continue to attract and retain the very best professionals in the tax services industry."
The primary criteria for the Great Place to Work® list inclusion is based on employee feedback. Two-thirds of the scoring of each company is based on employee responses to a randomly distributed survey regarding their work environment and culture, which is taken anonymously and is a representative sample of each company's population. The remaining third is based on an analysis of the company's programs and practices compared with other applicants.
