First American Named one of the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For by Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine for Eighth Consecutive Year
April 4, 2023, Santa Ana, Calif.
First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a 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 Fortune magazine and Great Place To Work® have honored the company as one of the 2023 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®. This marks the eighth year in a row that First American has earned a place on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list.
“First American has long been a great place to work, but it’s reaffirming to receive national recognition for eight consecutive years highlighting just how special our culture is,” said Ken DeGiorgio, CEO First American Financial Corporation. “I’m proud of this award, which reflects the integrity, dedication and teamwork our people demonstrate toward each other, our customers and the communities they serve.”
To determine the 100 Best Companies to Work For, Great Place To Work analyzed the anonymous survey responses of more than half a million employees from Great Place To Work Certified™ companies with at least 1,000 workers. Companies also submitted essays describing their efforts to offer generous and innovative support for workers, which were validated against employee survey responses. Honorees were selected based on their ability offer positive outcomes for employees regardless of job role, race, gender, sexual orientation, work status or other demographic identifier.
“It’s in times like these that the best workplaces separate themselves,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work. “In a challenging economy, many companies reduce investments in their people and scale back goals for diversity, equity and inclusion. But these companies, the 100 Best, relentlessly pursue a better work experience for every employee, and if anything, double down on the employee experience regardless of title, tenure, gender, or ethnicity. These companies know this is how you increase performance, productivity and your innovation velocity when your firm needs it the most.”
Additional Workplace Culture Recognition
In 2022, First American was named one of the Best Workplaces for Women™ for the seventh year in a row. Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine also recognized First American as one of the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance™ for the sixth consecutive year in 2022. Additionally, First American earned a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for LGBTQ+ workplace equality, marking the fifth consecutive year First American has earned top marks in the CEI.
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 eight years. In 2022, the company was also recognized for the third consecutive year on the list of Best Workplaces™ for Women.
