Paid Time Off

Ryan Specialty grants paid time off (PTO) benefits to all eligible employees, except those eligible for discretionary time off. PTO is the bank of time used for vacation, sick leave, and personal reasons. Employees are granted up to five PTO days (equivalent to 40 hours) upon their hire date and on January 1 of each subsequent calendar year, subject to their maximum PTO balance. PTO days are accrued monthly based on years of service and can be used as accrued.

Discretionary time off: Employees hired on or after January 1, 2023, whose primary responsibilities are at director level and above or who are pay coded brokers, are eligible for discretionary time off. You are encouraged to schedule sufficient time off for relaxation to promote good physical and mental health.
