TORONTO, March 22, 2017 /CNW/ -- Ryan, a leading global tax services firm, has been selected one of the 2017 Best Workplaces for Women in Canada. The Firm ranked as the second best workplace for women in the entire country in an independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Canada. The high ranking was based on many factors critical to a workplace that support the career growth of professional women, including the number and job level breakdown of women employees in an organization, and the percentage of positive responses to the statement: "I am treated fairly regardless of my gender." This recognition follows numerous other awards honoring Ryan's culture of empowering women in the workforce, including the 2017 National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Top Companies for Executive Women, the FORTUNE 100 Best Workplaces for Women, and Working Mother 100 Best Companies to Work For.
"It is an honor to be recognized as an outstanding workplace for women, and this award reinforces our commitment to advance initiatives that empower our employees to achieve the highest levels of work-life success," said Garry Round, Ryan President of Canadian Operations.
Ryan's commitment to attracting and retaining world-class professional women is a core component to the Firm's growth and market leadership position in the industry. The Firm offers an innovative, flexible work environment called myRyan, which measures work performance based on results achieved, as opposed to hours worked. Since introducing myRyan, the Firm has dramatically improved employee retention and satisfaction, enjoyed consistent revenue growth, and continues to achieve record-high client satisfaction ratings.
"We are unwavering in our determination to maintaining the very best work environment in the Canadian tax services industry," said G. Brint Ryan, Chairman and CEO of Ryan. "I want to personally thank our female associates in Canada for the confidence they've placed in our Firm and for demonstrating remarkable client service and business results."
