This has nothing to do with Manager Tools...and everything to do with MT. A peer gave me a thought when we were discussing his reasons for leaving his last job (over a year ago). Maybe it should have been bluntly obvious already, but for me this was such a novel idea that I wanted to share it.
Employee Loyalty is frequently about loyalty to fellow employees, not about loyalty to the company.
So many things rush out at me when I think about that - people saying "its not the job, it the people". About how I have never felt remorse at leaving a company, but usually felt bad about leaving fellow employees. About how retention really is about loyalty to people. Money won't keep people happy (for long). Organizations aren't the important thing. It comes together in Manager Tools. It is critically important to have a real, honest relationship with people. But, I've never associated it with loyalty until now.
Ok, a little too soft-side maybe - just a small paradigm shift that was too much not to share.
