First American Ranked Among the Best Workplaces for Women by Fortune and Great Place to Work® for Sixth Consecutive Year
September 16, 2021, 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® magazine and Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, have recognized First American as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Women™, marking the sixth consecutive year the company has earned a spot on the list. The ranking is based on analysis of confidential survey feedback representing more than 5.6 million employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations across the U.S.
“Approximately 70 percent of our employees are women, so earning a place on the 2021 Best Workplaces for Women list has added relevance and significance,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO, First American Financial Corporation. “This recognition reflects the integrity, commitment and teamwork our people demonstrate every day as they work together to serve our customers. Putting people first is a core component of our culture that is embraced throughout our organization and, ultimately, helps further our reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry.”
The 2021 Best Workplaces for Women list is determined by employee survey responses to over 60 questions describing the extent to which women report their organization creates a Great Place to Work for All™. For example, rankings are based on whether people trust each other and whether employees are able to reach their full human potential, no matter who they are or what they do.
“These companies have made a commitment to fostering equity in the workplace,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “With the data about gender inequity in mind, the Best Workplaces for Women braved the task of combatting gender inequity by ensuring their women employees feel safe, heard, challenged and valued.”
Earlier this year, First American was named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for the sixth consecutive year and named one of the 2021 PEOPLE Magazine Companies that Care®. In 2020, Fortune® magazine and Great Place to Work named the company one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance™ for the fifth consecutive year. Fortune® magazine and Great Place to Work have also named First American a Best Workplace for Diversity.
The company’s Canadian subsidiary, FCT, has been named by Great Place to Work to the “Best Workplaces™ in Canada – 1000+ Employees” list for the past seven years. Both this year and last, FCT was also included on the list of Best Workplaces™ for Women, and last year on the list of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness.
