Lasting Loyalty

Napoleon Hill said a, “Lack of loyalty is one of the major causes of failure in every walk of life.” It is a very different work life than it was only a couple of generations ago.  I remember my grandfather going to work for the city where he was born and lived his entire life. He started driving a bus in his early 20s.  It was the Great Depression and everyone in the family that was old enough worked to help support the family.  Decades later he retired from the city. It was calculated that he had driven the equivalent of to the moon and back several times over.  My father, worked for 25 years for the same company.  The loyalty of an employee was earned by the way the employer rewarded such loyalty.  There were pension plans and rewards for years of service.  Times have changed along with the economics of today’s businesses, but one thing remains the same in and out of the workforce.  Loyalty is still a quality to be admired.
