Award celebrates Experian’s commitment to employee safety, innovation, diversity and inclusion
Recognizing Experian’s inclusive culture and commitment to its employees and communities during the pandemic, the Orange County Register ranked the company as the #1 Top Workplace in 2020. The award, based on employee feedback in a survey of hundreds of leading companies in Orange County, marks the eighth year in row that Experian has been honored.
Focusing on our employees
Although the company had technology in place to easily initiate working remotely, Experian eased the transition for employees by also launching initiatives dedicated to mental and physical well-being. These initiatives include a COVID-19 Resource Center, enhanced sick-leave policies, increased mentoring opportunities to ensure continuity of professional development, flexible hours and return to office plans, as well as an ASPIRE to be Well guide, in partnership with human resources and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).
Supporting Our Communities
In addition to programs focused on its employees, Experian developed and launched a series of programs to help clients, consumers and communities persevere during the pandemic. This included free credit reports for consumers and small businesses, adding video streaming service payments to Experian Boost, hosting #creditchats on social media, the Experian CORE heatmap, COVID-19 U.S. Business Risk Index, Experian® Health Payer Policy Alerts and updated fraud protections through the Business Resources Website.
As part of its United for Financial Health initiative, Experian also launched two new partnerships with non-profit organizations to empower vulnerable consumers and those marginalized by the pandemic. In collaboration with Operation HOPE, Experian is helping vulnerable communities improve financial health with its data, analytics, products and services. Most recently, Experian has partnered with NAACP Empowerment Programs to offer Home Preservation Grants to African Americans at risk of losing their homes.
Although COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges for businesses and individuals alike, Experian remains dedicated to helping employees reach their full human potential and demonstrating that values and purpose do not change in a crisis.
