First American Named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2022 by Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine for Seventh Straight Year

April 11, 2022, Santa Ana, Calif.

First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), the premier provider of title, settlement and risk solutions for real estate transactions and the leader in the digital transformation of its industry, announced today that the company is one of this year’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, according to global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine. This marks the seventh consecutive year that First American has earned a place on the 100 Best Companies to Work For list.

“The integrity, commitment and teamwork our people display every day is the prime reason we’re consistently honored as one of the premier employers in the nation. This recognition reflects the strength of a culture that has enabled us to lead the transformation of our industry,” said Ken DeGiorgio, chief executive officer of First American Financial Corporation. “We strongly believe that putting people first matters – a philosophy that begins with our employees, but one that ultimately also benefits our customers, our shareholders and our communities.”

Great Place to Work selected the list of winners using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience across a range of role-agnostic criteria that includes race, gender, age and disability status. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

“Best Companies’ leadership has never been more necessary,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “As workers struggle with the Great Resignation, burnout and COVID disruptions, these exceptional companies offer workplace experiences as strong as prior to the pandemic. These companies get that 'place' is wherever their employees are sitting or standing, and they are committed to make that place equitable, safe and productive. Their commitment to genuinely care for their people through trust, inclusion, purpose and meaningful flexibility for life circumstances goes beyond surface-level perks and is a model for the market to follow.”
