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

September 19, 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 2019 Best Workplaces for Women, marking the fourth consecutive year the company has earned a spot on the list. The ranking is based on analysis of anonymous survey feedback representing more than 4.6 million employees.

“Nearly 70 percent of our employees are women, so earning a spot on the 2019 Best Workplaces for Women is particularly significant,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “The recognition reflects the integrity, commitment and teamwork our people demonstrate every day as they work together and serve our customers. 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 2019 Best Workplaces for Women measured what women themselves report in a 60-question anonymous survey about their workplace, and how fairly those experiences compare to what men report about the same workplaces. The survey analyzes the extent to which women report their organizations create a great workplace, including whether people trust each other and whether employees can reach their full potential, no matter who they are or what they do.

“These winning companies are thriving because women have an equal seat at every table where critical decisions are made,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like First American know that creating a great workplace where everyone can succeed regardless of gender is not just the right thing to do, but a must-do if you want to be the very best of everything in the marketplace.”

Earlier in 2019, also for the fourth 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 third year in a row.

The company’s Canadian subsidiary, FCT, has been named by Great Place to Work® to the “Best Workplaces™ in Canada – 1000+ Employees” list for five consecutive years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), and a 2018 Best Workplace in Canada for Millennials, as well as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance.

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 2019 Best Workplaces for Women, click here.
