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 the company is one of the 2021 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®, according to Fortune and global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work®. This marks the sixth year in a row that First American has earned a place on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list.
“This consistent recognition as one of the premier employers in the country reflects the integrity, commitment and teamwork our people demonstrate every single day, so they deserve the spotlight for the working environment they help create and enhance,” said Dennis J. Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “We strongly believe that putting people first matters, and this philosophy begins with our employees and extends from there to our customers, our shareholders and our communities.”
To determine the 2021 list, Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact. Companies were also assessed on how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics to ensure that the company is creating a great workplace for all.
“Congratulations to the 100 Best Companies to Work For. These companies stood out for heroic efforts to care for their employees, their customers and our society, in a difficult year,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Remarkably, our research found that employee experience scores rose at these workplaces overall last year – a testament to the resilience of their inclusive, high-trust cultures.”
