DALLAS, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan, the leading tax services firm in North America, with the largest transaction tax practice in the United States and Canada, today announced that the Firm was recognized as one of the 2011 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. This prestigious annual ranking was established in 2006 to identify, recognize, and honor the top 100 companies that offer the best places of employment in Texas, thereby benefitting the state's economy, workforce, and business environment.

The Best Companies to Work for in Texas Awards are sponsored by the Texas Monthly, Texas Association of Business, Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and Best Companies Group.

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.
