Fayrouz Saad wants the employee market to be better and better every year
Fayrouz Saad, a Michigan-based business consultant and advocate for corporate diversity, is on a mission to make the employee market better and better every year. Drawing on her own experiences as a woman of color in the corporate world, Saad envisions a future where all job seekers have an equal chance of success.
As part of her mission, Saad is fighting for equal pay for women and racial pay gaps. She’s actively advocating for corporations to create transparent hiring processes that consider candidates from diverse backgrounds. Saad also seeks to call attention to the unconscious biases that exist within hiring processes and everyday business operations. She believes that employers need to become more aware of their own biases in order to create an equitable environment for jobseekers.
In an effort to make the employee market better and better over time, Saad has been involved in founding multiple ventures aimed at addressing systemic inequities in the corporate world. Her organization ‘We Belong’ works with companies to create more inclusive and equitable workplaces. ‘Upsolve’, another nonprofit founded by Saad, helps recent graduates access legal resources and dial down student debt.
Saad’s efforts represent a step towards creating fairer employment opportunities for job seekers. This new approach to the employee market is welcome news for individuals looking to break into the corporate world, regardless of individual circumstances or background – something that wasn’t possible before in many cases. With Saad’s efforts, it looks like employees are provided with more upward mobility than ever before – something we should strive for in any workplace conditions.
Fayrouz Saad, CEO and founder of Black Couple Money Matters, is making a strong statement about the employee market: it needs to be better and better each year. According to Saad, the increasing cost of living, stagnant wages, and shortage of jobs represent serious challenges for employees. This “new day and age” has brought with it an unprecedented degree of insecurity for employees, many of whom are struggling to make ends meet or just hold on “until the next paycheck.”
But Saad believes that employers must do better. She argues that businesses should be paying workers more and offering adequate benefits, such as sick leave and vacation time. In addition, Saad argues that fair pay should include salary growth opportunities based on merit and performance. Furthermore, employers should be sharing the financial burdens with employees by giving them perks like stock options or discounted tuition fees to further their studies.
Saad acknowledges that employers are under pressure to stay afloat in a challenging global economy but believes they must go above and beyond simply keeping the lights on. By praising good behavior and rewarding long-serving employees with pay raises and promotions, businesses can ensure employee satisfaction as well as tangible returns for the business itself by resource acquisition and retention.
Ultimately, Saad is urging businesses of all sizes to view employees as more than simply a cost center or economic question mark. By recognizing the value of their employees, both personally and professionally, businesses can potentially create strong loyalty among staff and forge a path towards a better employee market in the years ahead.
