First American Ranked Among the Best Workplaces for Women by Fortune and Great Place to Work® for Third Consecutive Year


October 30, 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 2018 Best Workplaces for Women, marking the third consecutive year the company has earned a spot on the list. The ranking considered more than 540,000 employee surveys from hundreds of businesses in all sectors of the economy and evaluated women’s assessment of their experience on the job.

“Earning a spot on the 2018 Best Workplaces for Women is especially meaningful, since women make up nearly 70 percent of our employees,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “The recognition reflects the integrity, commitment and teamwork our people display in their interactions with each other and our customers every day. We emphasize putting people first and, in turn, our people have helped First American earn its reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry.”

The 2018 Best Workplaces for Women evaluated more than 50 elements of workplace experience, including the extent to which employees, particularly women, trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, and where women have equally great experiences as employees of other genders, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

“This year, we pledged to close the employee experience gender gap by 2020, and these winning organizations are leading the way in achieving this mission, proving that all companies, regardless of their industry, size, or complexity, can be great workplaces for women,” said Michael Bush, CEO, Great Place to Work. “Empowering women in the workplace isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s a business imperative. Organizations can create their own equitable cultures by learning from the companies on this list, who get women’s buy-in of the mission and inspire them to innovate, driving the entire company forward.”

Earlier in 2018, also for the third straight year, First American was named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list, and was named one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance for the second year in a row.

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 for four consecutive years (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).

The Best Workplaces for Women is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune® based on employee feedback. To see the complete list of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Women, click here.
