The concept of Loyalty reflects a person’s devotion and positive sentiments towards a person, duty, or organization. As an employee of an international firm, my first priority should be devotion to the belief that the success of my organization is eventually the success of my career. This thought compels me to be loyal to my organization which eventually boosts my professional career also. If the organization is working to give their employees the best workspace, friendly environment, performance bonuses, flexible work schedule, and medical allowance. In the current society, loyalty is always a two-way interaction-based relation in which both the ends (Employer and Employee) have to work for each other’s progress. A company cannot expect loyalty if it is giving no bonuses or health benefits to its employees.
True loyalty to a company carries expectations for the reward for your extra efforts. Job satisfaction is very important for having loyalty towards the organization. If you are not satisfied with your job, then you will not be loyal to your job or your employer. In the professional field, I come across many crucial situations, where my loyalty and ethical consideration for the company are challenged. During the Covid-19 global pandemic, my company downsized the employees and changed its management to lower their expenses and operational cost. I did not like my new professional environment. I lost my colleagues (Friends) and my upper management (Managing Director) with whom I was comfortable with. This created conflict in my self-interest (Personal interest). I had a personal issue with my new boss which jeopardized my loyalty towards the company also. These personal issues decreased my job satisfaction and company loyalty. As a result, these issues questioned my morality, business ethics, and loyalty towards the company.
