How Loyal Should Be To Your Boss?

Whether you are an employee, employer, a brand or a leader, loyalty needs to be earned. Loyalty is all about the relationship. The work environment will never be perfect. There may have up and downs. The employer deserves loyalty only if they treat their employees well. If the employees feel they are being taken care, there wouldn’t need to question loyalty.

Your boss exhibits loyalty to you by:

  • Trusting you and treating you with respect.
  • Having your back at all times.
  • Checking on your welfare if you become ill or injured.
  • By always maintaining an arm’s length relationship with you.
  • By not taking advantage of you “as a personal favour.”

As a boss, you may not like an employee who has to do the work as per the direction of the head. Try to be an employee who comes up with excellent ideas, executes and shows results to the boss.
