First American Named One of America's Best Employers in 2019 by Forbes


April 22, 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 Forbes® recognized the company as one of America's Best Employers in 2019 in the large employers category, which features the top 500 companies across 25 industry sectors that employ more than 5,000 people. This marks the second time that First American has been named to Forbes' America's Best Employers list.

Forbes America's Best Employers are chosen based on an independent survey from a sample of 50,000 American workers. The survey evaluation emphasizes how likely employees were to recommend their employer to friends and family. Employees were also asked to recommend other employers, which also factored into the rankings.

"Our employees place a premium on putting people first. It's how we work with each other, with our customers and within the communities in which we operate," said Dennis J. Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. "That our own employees would recommend us as a great employer reflects the integrity and commitment of their colleagues – the people they work with every day. It is their efforts that have earned First American's reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry."

Earlier this year, First American was named one of the 2019 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, according to Fortune and global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®. Fortune® and Great Place to Work® also recognized First American in 2019 as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance for the third year in a row and named First American as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces in Texas for the second year in a row.

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.
