First American Ranked Among the 2016 Best Workplaces for Diversity by Fortune and Great Place to Work®

American Financial Corporation
a leading global provider of title insurance, settlement services and
risk solutions for real estate transactions, announced today that Fortune®
and Great Place to Work® have recognized First American as
one of the 2016
Best Workplaces for Diversity
. 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®, a
global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures

“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, First
American Financial Corporation. “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

“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
. Since 2012, First American has earned
recognition as a “best place to work” 38 times in publications across
the United States. Internationally, the company’s Canadian subsidiary,
FCT, was named by Great Place to Work® as one of that
country’s Top 50 Best Workplaces in 2015 and 2016, and a 2016 Best
Workplace in Canada for Women.
