COSTA MESA, CA (December 10, 2021) – Recognizing its inclusive culture and commitment to employees and communities, the Orange County Register ranked Experian North America as the #1 Top Workplace for the second consecutive year. The award, based on employee feedback in a survey of hundreds of leading companies in Orange County, marks the ninth year Experian has been honored.
“We are honored to be recognized for our inclusive culture and achieving high performance while giving back. All our decisions are driven by the desire to lead with empathy while ensuring our employees feel valued and protected,” said Craig Boundy, Chief Executive Officer of Experian North America. “I’m so proud of our organization and all of our amazing colleagues for this award. Being the very best place to work in Orange County for the second year in a row demonstrates the tenacity and compassion of all the people who work at Experian.”
Dedication to Employees
In appreciation of their efforts, Experian issued a ‘Thank You’ Share Award to employees to recognize perseverance through the pandemic, giving employees an equity stake in the company. Experian North America offices were also reopened to fully vaccinated employees while embracing a new, flexible work environment that enables employees to select the working arrangement that is best for them.
“We encourage all employees to celebrate their individual culture, backgrounds and differences. We also understand the importance of publicly sharing our internal commitment to acceptance and tolerance to spark a larger, global impact,” said Justin Hastings, Chief Human Resources Officer of Experian North America. “This has led to increased engagement, as well as new collaborations and opportunities for us to further expand our purpose-driven culture. We are honored that the Orange County Register is recognizing these tireless efforts to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.”
Supporting Our Communities
Experian awarded two Orange County-based organizations with grants this year – The OC Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and TGR Foundation (a Tiger Woods Charity). The funds are for scholarships, events and programs that support credit education, small business entrepreneurship, homeownership, and financial inclusion efforts. Also, the company’s Asian American Employee Resource Group raised thousands of dollars through #FeedYourHospital, which supported Asian-owned restaurants that were disproportionately affected by anti-Asian racism and provided meals to front-line healthcare workers at hospitals in Orange Country. In total, Experian employees volunteered more than 900 hours to Orange County-based nonprofits and the company matched funds to those organizations that employees volunteered with and donated to.
Although COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for businesses and individuals alike, Experian remains dedicated to helping employees reach their full human potential, demonstrating that values and purpose do not change in challenging times.
