News Talk Online July 16, 2009: Recession Destroying Company Loyalty Authors Say
Too many managers are taking their employees for granted creating a lack of loyalty in the workplace, and that's affecting bottom lines.
That's the view of authors Timothy Keiningham and Lerzan Aksoy who will be my guests at 5 PM New York time Thursday on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com.
Keiningham and Aksoy argue that employers, recognizing that there's a huge pool of unemployed people out there, aren't showing loyalty toward their own workers. And in return, employees show reduced loyalty to their companies, viewing work as - well - just work - a means of collecting a paycheck.
Their new book, Why Loyalty Matters, explores ways bosses can inspire those who work for them and increase workplace productivity.
