DALLAS, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ryan, a leading global tax services firm with the largest indirect tax practice in North America, today announced that the Firm was selected as one of the best places to work in the state of Illinois for the third consecutive year. This prestigious award was established in 2006 to identify, recognize, and honor the top companies that offer the best places of employment in Illinois, thereby benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and business environment. The Daily Herald Business Ledger promotes the Best Places to Work in Illinois Awards program, in partnership with the Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC), the Illinois State Chamber of Commerce, and the Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago.
Twenty-five companies across the state were honored as Best Places to Work in Illinois in the Large Employer category, and Ryan ranked sixth. This 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, employee pride, and job 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.
"We are humbled that our associates ranked Ryan among the select group of large companies honored as Best Places to Work in Illinois for the third consecutive year," said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan.
