At Experian, we value a workplace culture based on inclusion, innovation and the diversity of perspectives that each of our employees bring to work every day. In recognition of this commitment, we are extremely proud to be named to Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in 2020” list.
Each year, Fortune recognises the 100 best companies in the U.S. to work for and examines company programs as well as opportunities for innovation, among other factors. To determine the list, Great Place to Work oversaw the country’s largest ongoing annual workforce study. The organisation analysed the feedback from 4.3 million employees in the U.S. to more than 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organisation creates a “Great Place to Work For All.” The ranking accounted for the experiences of all employees including women, people of color, members of the LGBT community, older team members, and disabled employees.
Experian’s Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Through its Power of YOU inclusion and diversity movement, Experian seeks to create an environment where everyone is comfortable bringing their whole self to work, regardless of differences or backgrounds. As part of this platform, Experian has a variety of programs including eight Employee Resource Groups, which are sponsored by the company and led by employees. Another initiative that has contributed to the positive work environment is Humans of Experian, an authentic and moving video series that is distributed through Experian’s networks and social media. The series highlights the personal stories of employees across the organisation.
At Experian we aspire to have a truly diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters innovation, and have created a variety of different programs to achieve this goal. As part of this, we celebrate our diversity through a range of fun, engaging and informative cultural events, including those supported by our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Employees can also join one of our many social clubs to share interests with colleagues, or volunteer with nonprofit organisations to give back to the communities in which Experian operates. Our culture of inclusion is truly something to celebrate, and that’s because of every single person who makes up the Experian family and brings our brand to life every day.
Experian’s Culture of Innovation
Experian constantly challenges and encourages employees to be part of the ideation and creation of many of the pioneering products it brings to clients and to consumers. For example, in 2019, Experian launched Experian Boost™, a free, first-of-its-kind, consumer-controlled tool that has the potential to impact an individual’s financial health for the better. Hundreds of employees from throughout the company volunteered to personally evaluate Experian Boost because they believed in the product’s potential to help millions of Americans.
All of this is supported by our culture of continuous innovation; from the way we work to the solutions we create. This commitment to innovation has helped us create a workplace where our teams across the world have a desire to help change the lives of millions for the better.
The diversity of thinking across Experian, and the way in which we harness it, helps fuel our innovation and ultimately our ongoing success as a business. This makes our work relevant to our consumers and clients, adding more value in their own lives – creating a better tomorrow for them.
As a result, we continue to have a positive impact on consumers, businesses and the economy. We do this with our products, technology, and innovation — from finding breakthroughs around better utilising data, to identifying ways we can make access to credit faster and simpler for millions around the world.
At Experian, we are dedicated to making our workplace more just than a business. It’s a community that supports all our employees and promotes a culture where people can be comfortable being their authentic selves. And because of that commitment, we’re proud to join the ranks of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For in 2020”.
