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


December 20, 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 Diversity for the fourth consecutive year. The ranking is based on anonymous survey responses representing more than 4.8 million employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations.

“Earning this recognition for the fourth year in a row highlights the importance to our people of diversity and inclusion in their relationships with their fellow employees, customers and the community,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “It reflects our philosophy of putting people first and the emphasis we place on integrity, leadership and teamwork.”

According to Great Place to Work, the Best Workplaces for Diversity stand out for creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of their personal characteristics.

“Building great workplaces for all is not only the right thing to do – it’s also a critical way leaders build business value,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In our study of nearly 2,000 companies, we found that key metrics related to equity and inclusion not only drive stronger company innovation, but also predict whether companies will thrive or stumble during a recession.”

To determine the list, Great Place to Work analyzed the experiences of women, under-represented races/ethnicities, LGBTQ people, employees who are in the Baby Boomer generation or older, and people who have disabilities, comparing their survey results to their colleagues’ results at the same organizations. All told, these anonymous survey responses on more than 60 survey questions reflecting day-to-day workplace treatment represented the work lives of more than 4.8 million employees.

Earlier in 2019, also for the fourth year in a row, First American was named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list and named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Women. The company was also named one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance for the third consecutive year.

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 Diversity is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune® based on employee survey feedback. To see the complete list of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Diversity, click here.
