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


March 26, 2019, 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 third year in a row. The ranking considered feedback representing more than 726,000 employees working at Great Place to Work-certified organizations in the financial services and insurance industries.

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

“First American’s reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry is a direct product of the integrity, dedication and teamwork our people demonstrate day after day,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “Our employees bring our people-first philosophy to life by endeavoring to create 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 2019 list, Great Place to Work applied its data-driven methodology to anonymous Trust Index™ survey responses, evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job, including the extent to which employees 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, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization. 

“In an industry that’s becoming increasingly reliant on technology to provide new and better services, these top employers in financial services demonstrate that they value their people by tapping into their creativity, enabling them to innovate and help the organization thrive,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like First American stand out from the crowd, intentionally growing their businesses by creating great places to work for all, making employees feel valued and respected for their talents and contributions.”

In 2018, Fortune® magazine and Great Place to Work recognized First American for the third 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” 55 times in publications across the United States since 2012.

Internationally, the company’s Canadian subsidiary, FCT, has been named by Great Place to Work® to the “Best Workplaces™ in Canada – 1000+ Employees” list for four consecutive years (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018), and a 2018 Best Workplace in Canada for Millennials, as well as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance.
