DALLAS, June 13, 2012 /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 Ohio for the second consecutive year. This prestigious annual ranking was established to identify, recognize, and honor the top companies that offer the best places of employment in Ohio, thereby benefiting the state's economy, workforce, and business environment. Ryan was selected after a rigorous two-part evaluation of the Firm's workplace policies, practices, and demographics, combined with a comprehensive employee survey measuring the Firm's work environment, culture, and employee pride and satisfaction. The 2012 Best Employers in Ohio awards are sponsored by the Ohio Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) State Council and the Best Companies Group. Only 35 distinguished companies were selected across the entire state for superior workplace excellence, and Ryan was ranked 14th overall in the Large Employer category.
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.
