Commitment to Diversity
Our strong commitment to diversity and inclusion means seeking out the best mix of talent, then growing and nurturing that talent to unlock the potential that comes from a diverse workforce. By helping us develop more ideas, provide better customer service and increase our operational flexibility, diverse talent allows us to drive and expand into new markets, build new products and connect more wholly with our partners. Our commitment extends first and foremost from the understanding that diversity is a key ingredient to our success and is essential to maintaining our competitive edge.
By establishing a workforce that better connects with the communities our company serves and by reinvesting in the those communities, First American creates a better customer experience that makes the company more recognizable to diverse audiences, as well as to clients who look for specific levels of supplier diversity for the procurement of goods and services.
In the end, our policies, programs and initiatives seek to create an inclusive work environment where employees feel there are no artificial barriers to the full utilization of their talent, their productivity and ultimately, to the success of First American.
