First American Ranked Among the Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance by Fortune and Great Place to Work® For Second Consecutive Year


March 27, 2018, Santa Ana, Calif.

First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions, announced today that Fortune® and Great Place to Work® have recognized First American as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance for the second year in a row. The ranking is the result of an anonymous survey of 76,000 employees in the financial services and insurance industries administered by Great Place to Work®, a global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.

Earlier this year, First American was named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for the third consecutive year. 

“First American’s reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry is the result of the integrity, commitment and teamwork our people exhibit every day,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “They are the ones who bring our people-first philosophy to life through their conduct, creating stronger relationships with each other, our customers and the communities in which we operate.”

The Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune® based on employee survey feedback. To prepare the 2018 list, Great Place to Work applied its data-driven methodology to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses, evaluating more than 50 factors that shape employees’ experience at work, including employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.

“Great Place to Work is proud to have these Best Workplaces show that maximizing human potential creates a great workplace and drives business performance,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like First American set the bar for other Financial Services and Insurance companies, proving that if you invest in your people, they will invest in you.”

In 2017, Fortune® magazine and Great Place to Work recognized First American for the second consecutive year as one of the Best Workplaces for Women and one of the Best Workplaces for Diversity. First American has earned recognition as a “best place to work” 56 times in publications across the United States since 2012.

Internationally, the company’s Canadian subsidiary, FCT, was named by Great Place to Work® as one of that country’s Top 50 Best Workplaces in its category for three consecutive years (2015, 2016 and 2017), and a 2017 Best Workplace in Canada for Women, as well as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance.
