COSTA MESA, Calif., Dec. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognizing Experian's commitment to putting consumers first and its culture of collaboration, the Orange County Register named the global information services company a Top Workplace honoree at its recent gala ceremony. The award, based on employee feedback in a survey of hundreds of leading companies in Orange County, marks the fifth time Experian has been honored with this recognition.
"We are honored to again be recognized as one of the top places to work in Orange County. We do our best to provide a workplace that gives our employees a sense of purpose," said Craig Boundy, chief executive officer, Experian North America. "At the center of this purpose is a consumer-first philosophy. Our employees know that we are opening doors of opportunity for consumers and businesses."
Every day, Experian's data and analytics are helping consumers and businesses achieve more. Experian employees work to help people do important things to improve their lives and realize their ambitions, such as buying a car or home, funding an education, growing a business, or protecting their identity. This commitment comes from Experian's diverse culture and the collective strength of its employees, who are collaborating constantly to help Experian create a better tomorrow for millions of consumers.
"We believe in a culture of collaboration that allows our employees to constantly innovate," added Boundy. "For example, our cross-functional teams are finding different ways to make access to credit faster and simpler for millions around the world."
Experian is equally committed to giving back to the Orange County community. From volunteering with the Jessie Rees Foundation which helps children deal with cancer and the Blind Children's Learning Center to using company donation-matching incentives, Experian employees continue to make a difference in the community.
This year Experian also provided a $750,000 gift to create the Experian Assistant Professorship in Machine Learning at Chapman University. This investment is being used to expand machine learning opportunities at the university's Machine Learning and Assistive Technology Lab (MLAT), where Chapman researchers use big data and technology to address challenges of social significance like autism.
"How we work is as important as what we do," said Justin Hastings, chief human resources officer, Experian North America. "Whether it's volunteering in the community, celebrating our diversity or simply enjoying our time together, Experian is a place where we draw on our collective strength, and this truly makes us a top workplace."
