Culture of Caring

Our Culture of Caring

Protecting property ownership is only one way our employees make a difference in our communities. Here at Stewart, we care for the communities we live in and serve. From company culture, customer service, to community and sustainability initiatives, our Culture of Caring stretches across the globe.

Inclusion and Diversity

We believe our customers, employees, partners and agents are best served when people with different backgrounds and experiences come together to produce exceptional outcomes. Our employees are required to review and adhere to our strict policy prohibiting harassment or discrimination based on race, color, origin, creed, gender identity, pregnancy or related medical conditions, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, genetic information or any other consideration protected by applicable law.

We strive to create a work environment that reflects the customers we serve.

Everyone Seen. Everyone Heard. Everyone Celebrated.

With the establishment of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Committee, Stewart is committed to representing, supporting and serving marginalized communities and groups with clear action in our recruitment, outreach and service processes. We strive to provide everyone the opportunity to succeed while valuing the strength our different perspectives and experiences foster.

We celebrate the LGBTQ community not only during Pride Month but throughout the year.

Strengthening Our Employee Value Proposition

  • Diversified university relations with underrepresented groups, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and programs for intercultural studies for a diverse talent pool of interns.
  • Evolved recruiting practices that focus on more diverse job boards geared towards veterans, minorities, women, the LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities and more. 
  • Added additional floating holidays for employees to observe, honor and celebrate the days that matter most to them and their families and take time to volunteer in their communities.
  • Enhanced paid parental leave in 2023, including childbirth and bonding time off, to allow parents the time they need to bond when bringing a child into their families.
  • Invested in better health insurance options to support employees with rising health care costs.
  • Introduced our employee stock purchase plan to help our employees build and increase their wealth.
