Since 2005. Market yourself. Find better work. Make a name. Survive Layoffs. Be successful.

The "L" Word

Loyalty.

We associate loyalty with all things good. Service to country. Man's best friend. Faithful companions.

We hear often about "company loyalty".

We hear about "x number of years of loyal service".

What is the real value, in the twenty first century, on loyalty?

In an age where we ourselves expect to change careers five times and jobs twelve, is there really any place for loyalty these days?

As companies shed and add jobs based upon quarterly stock reports, does loyalty really matter or have any value?

Why do we still kid ourselves?

Loyalty is a grand concept and should be lauded in many categories. But loyalty is a dead subject in the work place.

Take loyalty off your "Benefits I Bring To The Workplace" list and replace it with something more tangible today.

I know what you mean. Although my employer said they care about us, they sold out and the new owner has different plans
