What if more employers acted like George Bailey?

I was recently asked during a radio interview what employers could do to show greater loyalty to employees and to build a culture of long-term employment and commitment from their staff. In this part-time economy that is growing at a rapid rate since the Great Recession of 2008 many media outlets think it is people who are moving frequently and “looking for a better job” not showing loyalty to businesses.

The reality is that most people want certainty and stability. Employees want to find long-term work and they want to build a career with companies. Many businesses facing tough economic conditions are looking to reduce fixed cost and are moving to short-term employment contracts and temporary labor so they can have more variable cost too be more nimble in this economy.

I highlight in this article at Real Clear Religion what business leaders can do to build a stable and profitable business while building trust and long term commitment with their staff. The key, never put profits ahead of people! For those searching for a career be on the look out for companies that value their employees more than profits and you will find a company that will win in this new dynamic global economy and that is a company worth building your career around. What do you think? How many companies and business leaders out there do you know strive for this?
