Our Executive team, management, and supervisors have been honored with numerous awards over the years, both individually and as a whole. Our leadership team is dedicated to creating a positive work environment and does so with a commitment to our open-door policy. Whether offering advice, chatting about personal matters, or finding solutions to challenges, our Executives, directors, and managers are always available. HFG also encourages mentoring programs for all employees, including our senior management team, to help overcome any obstacles or further develop their skills. In addition to monthly manager meetings, the leadership of HFG takes part in workshops for team building, developing, and strategizing. These training sessions highlight how to best manage employees and how to successfully incorporate HFG’s award winning culture into their respective departments.
HFG is proud to be an eight-time Most Admired Company and credits this success to our wonderful employees. At HFG, family comes first and employees call each other “Homies,” demonstrating the family environment that we strive to foster each and every day. To ensure we are maintaining a family-oriented company culture, we created a nationwide Culture Committee which meets every month to discuss seasonal charitable initiatives, upcoming employee engagement events, marketing contests, and employee appreciation. Since our employees are absolutely instrumental to our culture, we continuously show thanks through awards, tenure programs and all-company events including our well-known State of the Union. We also feature a different Homie once a month in our personal newsletter for companywide recognition.
Corporate and Social Responsibility
The core of our corporate culture is our commitment to Giving Back, which is woven throughout our Mission, Vision, and Values statements. HFG’s most significant charitable endeavor is the development of Care Fund, a nonprofit foundation with one mission: to financially and resourcefully support Arizona families who endure financial hardship while experiencing serious illness or injury of their children. Since its founding in 2013, Care Fund has provided more than $1,750,000 in emergency and mortgage and rent assistance to 700+ families throughout Arizona.
In conjunction with HFG’s Culture Committee, we organize two major charitable initiatives each year. The primary charitable focus is to give back to local charities serving children, Veterans, emergency relief, disability and disease. Before each initiative kicks off, the Culture Committee votes on which focus they want to contribute to, and each branch decides on a nonprofit organization they’d like to work with in their local area. During these initiatives, employees will not only donate items and money, but will also go to a facility and serve food, pack items, deliver holiday gifts, and more. In 2018, HFG’s employees donated nearly 800 work hours volunteering for charity, as well as donating 10,000 items, valued at over $43,000.
Aside from the many opportunities to volunteer through our company, we also support charities that our employees are involved in outside of work. HFG always encourages employees to request for donations and sponsorships for charities that are near and dear to them.
HFG was honored with Ellie Mae’s 2019 Digital Excellence Award and recognized nationally for the strides in innovation and employee efficiency we made as we implemented new technologies and programs to enhance the mortgage transaction for both employees and customers. To make sure we are current with industry needs, our CEO created a President’s Club Council comprised of HFG’s top producing sales employees nationwide. Here, members can express ideas to help themselves and fellow employees improve their business. Furthermore, we have recently implemented a competitive new benefits program, as well as health and wellness initiatives. We understand that the business environment is rapidly progressing, and we pride ourselves on creating the necessary programs to stay ahead of the curve.
