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

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.

Does this mean that since congress now owns about everything and they in congress work for us, we can now fire the congressmen?
