September 15, 2017, 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 2017 Best Workplaces for Women, marking the second consecutive year the company has earned a spot on the list. The ranking considered more than 400,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy and gauged women’s assessment of their organizations’ culture, leadership, fairness and other elements essential for a great workplace.

Earlier in 2017, also for the second straight year, Fortune® magazine recognized First American as one of the 100 best companies to work for in America, as well as one of the 40 Best Workplaces in Financial Services.

“Women make up nearly 70 percent of our workforce and a significant share of our customers, so earning this recognition two years in a row reflects our simple philosophy of putting people first,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “The people who work at First American value integrity, commitment and teamwork. It is their collective efforts, day in and day out, that have helped First American earn its reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry.”

The 2017 Best Workplaces for Women compared women’s survey results to their colleagues' to ensure women had as positive an experience as men. These experiences included access to meaningful work, fair pay and plans for a future with their organizations. The analysis also included demographic patterns to ensure companies created great workplaces for all women, regardless of who they are or what jobs they perform.

"The Best Workplaces for Women deserve recognition for crafting environments where men and women alike can bring their best selves to work each day,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work.

First American has earned recognition as a “best place to work” 51 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 for three consecutive years (2015, 2016 and 2017).

The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune® based entirely upon employee survey feedback. To see the complete list of the 2017 Best Workplaces for Women, click here.
