6 Qualities of Remarkably Loyal Employees

6 Qualities of Remarkably Loyal Employees | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Let's get this out of the way: Loyalty has absolutely nothing to do with length of employment.


Who is more loyal: the 20-year veteran employee who does just enough to get by, criticizes you and your company at work and in public, frequently and not so subtly undermines your decisions...or the employee who's been there six months, embraces where you want to go, and works his butt off every day to help you and your company get there?


Experience matters, but I'll take the six-month employee every time.

Loyal employees are loyal to your company. They work hard for their pay and are committed to your company's success. Loyal employees may someday leave, but while they work for you they do their best and often even put the company's interests ahead of their own.


Remarkably loyal employees hit the next level. They aren't just loyal to the company.


They're also loyal to you--even though their loyalty can be displayed in surprising ways.


Here are six qualities of remarkably loyal employees.

The wheel of fortune - The latest crop of bosses will have short and troubled tenures

The wheel of fortune - The latest crop of bosses will have short and troubled tenures | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

FOR a company, no decision matters more than picking the right chief executive. A good boss can turn a so-so company into a scorcher. A bad one can turn a successful firm into a flop. Last year about 350 of the world’s 2,500 biggest public companies appointed a new head honcho. What is to be expected from this brave new band of bosses? Booz & Company, a consultancy, has produced an annual survey of CEO turnover in these firms for the past 12 years. The latest survey offers a welcome chance to speculate.


The omens do not look good. In appointing the boss class of 2011, company boards appear to have made two big bets. The first is that the world economy is about to grow briskly. Judging by the past decade’s data, companies tend to hold on to their chief executive when the economy is doing badly and appoint a new one when they feel that spring is in the air. In 2011 they appointed a lot of new bosses. A hefty 14.2% of firms made a change at the top, up from 11.6% the previous year.

Job Hopping Is the 'New Normal' for Millennials

Job Hopping Is the 'New Normal' for Millennials | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The average worker today stays at each of his or her jobs for 4.4 years, according to the most recent available data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but the expected tenure of the workforce's youngest employees is about half that.


Ninety-one percent of Millennials (born between 1977-1997) expect to stay in a job for less than three years, according to the Future Workplace “Multiple Generations @ Work” survey of 1,189 employees and 150 managers. That means they would have 15 – 20 jobs over the course of their working lives!
