Employee Engagement Expert Fahim Karim Reveals Leadership Strategies For Retaining and Attracting Employees On Influencers Radio

Published

on

Employee Engagement Expert and Founder of Gear 2 Harvest Fahim Karim was the featured guest on Influencers Radio with Jack Mize.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in September of 2021 more than 4.4 million people resigned (not laid off) from their jobs while there were 10.4 million job openings in the same period.  Labeled “The Great Resignation,” millions of workers are quitting right now and employers are in panic mode, finding it difficult just retaining talent, much less attracting new talent.

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Employee Engagement expert Fahim Karim discussed how he is helping purpose-driven, growing companies retain and attract talent in the face of this tidal wave of resignations. 

On the surface, it may appear to many that the COVID pandemic has been the main thrust behind the increased volume of workers leaving their jobs. However, during the interview, Karim cited preliminary survey data that revealed some of the main reasons employees are really leaving: burnout, organizational change, lack of flexibility, discrimination, and lack of value being placed on employee contributions and ideas.

Explaining why the pandemic may have opened the gate for the Great Resignation, but that the root cause goes much deeper, Karim said, “What I know from my own experiences, this is not something that just happened.  It’s been brewing for years. And with COVID, it really has magnified. People have really started to question, ‘Should I be putting up with what I’ve been putting up within my organization?’ They’re not happy with how they’re feeling, so they are pursuing more deep, meaningful work, and in some instances, quitting without even having work to go to. Surveys show that 28% of employees were so discontent that they left their jobs without another job lined up and when looking at people working in the food services and hospitality sectors, 56% also jumped the boat, they just quit.”

Fahim Karim is the Founder of Gear 2 Harvest, a Management Consulting firm focused on Employee Engagement. With 20+ years of award-winning industry experience leading Fortune 500 companies, Fahim specializes in finding the root cause of employee disengagement by working with individual CEOs and Managers to become the leader their team loves to work with.

Mortgage Lender Ron Pippin Reveals Mortgage Myths and Truths for First-Time Home Buyers on Influencers Radio

Published

on

Mortgage Lender Ron Pippin was the featured guest on Influencers Radio with Jack Mize.

Buying a house can be a stressful and confusing process – especially for a first time home buyer who is trying to understand the down payment, credit, and income requirements to qualify for a mortgage.

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, Mortgage Lender Ron Pippin discussed the common myths, misconceptions, and financing mistakes facing first-time home buyers.

During the interview, Pippin revealed one of the most common misconceptions about home financing that make qualified buyers feel homeownership is out of their reach, saying, “A lot of people think that you need 20% down or more to buy a home. And in today’s environment, that’s really tough to come up with 20% on a home. It’s a significant amount, and a lot of people just don’t have that. There are programs that allow people to buy a home with much less. In fact, sometimes with zero down allows them to become a homeowner …There are specific government programs … if you’re a veteran, a VA home loan requires no money down. If you live in a rural area, there’s a USDA program that requires no money down. But then what’s less known are some of the government grants and down payment assistance programs that are available and also require very little or no money down.  Many states have a first-time buyer program that they couple the downpayment assistance with a regular mortgage that covers the entire downpayment, and sometimes even the closing costs. So, you’re bringing in very little or no money down. Especially if the sellers are willing to pay some closing costs, then you literally can get in with no money down. Downpayment assistance differs from grant programs that are available as well. They can vary depending on the state, county, and even cities. And some cities and counties have grant programs available anywhere from a couple thousand dollars on up to thirty or forty thousand dollars that can help people get into a home based on their income, where they live, or where they’re going to live. And so it really is, takes away that barrier of buying a home with 20% down which allows people to get in very quickly, and not have to put off the home buying process.”

Since 1995, Ron Pippin has been helping first-time buyers get the right financing for the house that their family will call HOME.

Ron is the Branch Manager and Team Leader for The Pippin Team at Cardinal Financial in Ogden, Utah.  He has been listed in the top 3% of mortgage originators nationwide.  But more importantly, he’s been an Educator and Advocate for the thousands of families he’s helped navigate the home financing process.
