First American Ranked Among the 2016 Best Workplaces for Diversity

December 6, 2016

First American Financial Corp. was recognized as one of the 2016 Best Workplaces for Diversity by Fortune and Great Place to Work.

The ranking is based upon feedback from 448,456 employees at companies who completed the Trust Index Employee Survey administered by Great Place to Work.

“Our employees and our management team view a diverse employee community as integral to our success. We work hard to be inclusive—to put people first—by providing opportunities for our employees to advance in their careers, regardless of who they are,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO of First American Financial. “This helps instill a culture based on integrity, innovation, commitment and teamwork, which is good for our employees, but also benefits our customers and our business results.”

To determine the winners, Great Place to Work analyzed how positively women, minorities and LGBTQ employees reported experiencing their workplace overall, paying special attention to an index of factors where these employees tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues. Rankings take into account how favorably women, minorities and LGBTQ employees experience their workplace relative to their male, Caucasian and heterosexual colleagues' experiences. The list also considered the degree of representation women and minorities enjoy within the workforce as a whole, as well as in management and executive roles.

“We congratulate this year’s winners for showing that diverse workplaces are good for all employees,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Bottom line? Our research shows that the most inclusive workplaces enjoy significantly higher revenue growth than less-inclusive workplaces—evidence that these organizations are cultivating the full human potential of all their people.”

Earlier in 2016, Fortune magazine also recognized First American as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in America, one the 2016 Best Workplaces for Women, and in 2015 First American was named by Fortune as one of the 10 Best Workplaces in Insurance.
