(I'll give the Indy one more chance...)
Ruthless? Cynical, perhaps, but it's the way we are generally treated that make us that way. My current employer is different - they have shown me real loyalty, and I'll show it to them back. (And I'm not just saying that in case one of the directors reads this. ;-) But they are unusual - in most of the places that I've worked, I was just a resource, no more.
Trust and loyalty are two way streets. When companies start showing them to their workers, then they can expect them in return. Not before.
Naturally, while times are hard in the job market, people will stick where they are. But as soon as the market shifts, there will be a lot of compnies left in the lurch...Posted to Business by Simon Brunning at July 07, 2003 02:54 PM
