Fortune Names First American as 10 Best Workplaces in Insurance

August 25, 2015

First American has been named as one of the 10 Best Workplaces in Insurance by Fortune and Great Place to Work. The ranking is the result of an anonymous survey of more than 86,000 insurance employees administered by Great Place to Work, a global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.

“Listening to our people and providing them with opportunities to excel are central to our success. The integrity, commitment and teamwork our people demonstrate every day has earned First American a reputation for leadership and innovation in the title insurance and settlement services industry,” said Dennis Gilmore, CEO of First American Financial Corporation. “Securing a place among the Fortune and Great Place to Work’s 10 Best Workplaces in Insurance ranking is a reflection of how our people feel about the company, so I’m very grateful for their positive feedback and look forward to accomplishing more in the future.”

First American and the nine other winning companies were selected based on the evaluations of over 86,000 insurance employees who were surveyed using the Trust Index, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey. The 10 Best Workplaces in Insurance ranking is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune based entirely upon employee survey feedback from published Great Place to Work Reviews.

“The companies on this list are leaders in the insurance field who recognize the strategic importance of creating workplaces that attract and support the best talent within and outside their industry,” says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work United States. “As a group, they are particularly successful compared with their peers at sharing financial rewards with their employees, involving people in decisions that affect them, and distributing promotions based on merit. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies’ ongoing efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with their staff.”
