Why Loyalty to a Company Is More Important Than Ever
In a hot job market, the prospect of changing employers can be appealing when there are numerous opportunities available. However, the short term benefits of leaving a job may not be worth the advantages to your career that you could be giving up if you committed to staying for the longer term. Learn more about why loyalty to a company is more important than ever:
Job hopping may provide short term benefits like an increased paycheck, but constantly switching jobs can take its toll on you with a lack of stability. By remaining loyal to an employer, you have a consistent schedule, income, and work environment that can reduce stress as compared to having regular upheaval in your professional life.
Employers benefit greatly over the long term for their future leadership needs by cultivating the talent they already have. If you remain loyal to an employer and express your interest in moving up, you have more of an opportunity for internal growth and getting someone to take a chance on you in a higher position – compared to a new company who may want you to already possess all of the qualifications and experience.
The longer you stay at an employer, the more ingrained you become into the team,
mission, and culture. This level of engagement increases your job satisfaction more than having short tenures at multiple employers where you don’t have the opportunity to fully connect with the workplace and your colleagues.
You are more likely to perform at a higher level at an employer with which you have had years of experience. Being more familiar with the nuances of the workplace can make it easier for you to collaborate effectively with others, understand expectations and approval processes, and feel confident in your abilities.
When you commit to an employer, you are more likely to identify with them personally and feel invested in its success. Staying loyal to an employer can help make the work you do and the value you contribute feel more rewarding since you are also personally connected, giving you a sense of purpose and achievement.
