Prioritizing employee safety and well-being propelled Experian’s ranking
Experian North America’s heightened focus on employee well-being and safety fueled innovations to serve its clients and consumers during an extraordinary year. This and our ongoing focus on creating a culture of inclusion propelled Experian’s rise from number 90 in 2020 to the ranking of 31 in Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2021.
To determine the 2021 list, Great Place to Work® surveyed over half a million employees on issues including how trustworthy, caring and fair the company is in times of crises; employees’ physical, emotional and financial health; and the company’s broader community impact. Particular attention was paid to how employees’ experiences varied depending on their job role, gender, race/ethnicity, payroll status, and other characteristics to ensure the company is creating a great workplace for all.
As illustrated in Experian North America’s 2020 Power of YOU report, the well-being of every employee has been Experian’s focus throughout the pandemic. The company expanded benefits for mental health resources, telemedicine, and caregiving. Experian’s leaders partnered with Aspire, the company’s mental health and caregiving employee resource group to create the ASPIRE to be Well: Mind|Body|Spirit guide, which provides webinars, articles and personal video stories from colleagues on different well-being topics each week.
From free credit reports for consumers and small businesses, to products and services that enable governments, healthcare providers and nonprofits to prepare for and serve populations in crisis, Experian North America’s workforce leveraged diversity of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences to help vulnerable populations in crisis from COVID-19. Even through lockdowns and restrictions, employees logged 18,000 volunteer hours in 2020 to increase financial inclusivity, support frontline healthcare workers, honor the nation’s military and veterans, and fight hunger.
Experian’s United for Financial Health program has launched partnerships with Operation HOPE, Black Girl Ventures, the NAACP and other non-governmental organizations to improve and protect the financial health of marginalized communities around the globe.
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation gave Experian North America a perfect score in its Corporate Equality Index for the third year in a row, and the company earned its recertification as a Great Place to Work. It has been named one of the top 10 Fortune’s Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance, and a Comparably Top 50 company for Best Outlook 2021.
