Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has been named by FORTUNE magazine as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces for Diversity in 2019. This is the third consecutive year for the Firm to make FORTUNE’s annual list and the fourth time in the past five years.
The Best Workplaces for Diversity stand out for creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of their personal characteristics.
“We have worked to create an inclusive culture that encourages our employees to find ways to connect with one another, listen, and build on their unique perspectives to make valuable contributions to their teams and the Firm,” said Ryan Global President and Chief Operating Officer Ginny B. Kissling. “This recognition from our employees reinforces our efforts to have a diverse workplace that lives our values and continues to deliver meaningful results to our clients.”
As a recognized organization on the Best Workplaces for Diversity, Ryan was Great Place to Work-Certified in 2018. To earn this distinction, the Firm had at least 90 percent of its employees agree they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics, such as gender, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation. Great Place to Work determined the best Trust Index statements provided based on employee responses about the Firm being inclusive to establish its final ranking.
“Building great workplaces for all is not only the right thing to do—it’s also a critical way leaders build business value,” said Michael C. Bush, chief executive officer of Great Place to Work. “In our study of nearly 2,000 companies, we found that key metrics related to equity and inclusion not only drive stronger company innovation but also predict whether companies will thrive or stumble during a recession.”
Ryan, an award-winning global tax services and software provider, is the largest Firm in the world dedicated exclusively to business taxes. With global headquarters in Dallas, Texas, the Firm provides an integrated suite of federal, state, local, and international tax services on a multijurisdictional basis, including tax recovery, consulting, advocacy, compliance, and technology services.
