There is no denying that, as leadership speakers say, loyalty is a key characteristic of any workforce. Even for the employees themselves, being loyal is one of the most important things that they can do in building their career. As a manager, when hiring, it is important to try to test this loyalty in the candidates. This allows you to save on the turnover that might occur in the case of not so loyal employees.
For those employees that stand out in an organization, there are going to be offers made to you by competitors. This happens everywhere and they often seem better than what you have at the moment. The limiting factor about this is that you will leave what you have built with your current company to start all over again. Sometimes you will be on the brink of promotion, but lack of patience might send you the other way. It is therefore important to be loyal
When you are looking to be promoted you need to grasp the concept that there is much more required of you than what is in your job description. This means that as an employee, you need to go the extra mile and be noticed in the company.
This is what leadership speakers mean when they talk of the importance of loyalty.
