FCT named on 2020 List of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion
Company recognized for inclusive culture
OAKVILLE, February 6, 2020 – FCT, the national leader in real estate technology, today announced the company earned a spot on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion, after an analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. Last year, FCT was named one of the “Top 50 Best Workplaces” by the Great Place to Work® Institute, marking its fifth year in a row on the prestigious list.
“At FCT, our employees are our lifeline. Our business is driven by an incredible group of employees who have a strong commitment to trust, respect and support for others,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO of FCT. “We understand that creating an inclusive culture is important to the success of our organization, and making sure our employees feel encouraged and valued is a top priority. That’s why we’re so proud to see the culture that we’ve built and fostered together be recognized with this great honour and to show our employees that their efforts are making a difference.”
The list of Best Workplaces for Inclusion™ is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year and at least 90 percent of employees must agree they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics (such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation). Recipients were chosen based on employee responses to inclusion-related survey questions.
Founded in 1991, the FCT group of companies is based in Oakville, Ontario, and has over 800 employees across the country. The group provides industry-leading title insurance, default solutions and other real-estate-related products and services to approximately 450 lenders, 43,000 legal professionals and 5,000 recovery professionals, as well as real estate agents, mortgage brokers and builders, nationwide.
The Great Place to Work® Institute has named FCT one of Canada’s Top 50 Best Workplaces for five consecutive years (2015-2019) and certified FCT as a Great Place to Work. FCT’s parent company, First American Financial Corporation, was named to the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list for the fourth consecutive year in 2019.
