Top 5 Ways To Make Employees Loyal to The Company.
BY DEORAO K.
We often see that some of the companies have comparatively more loyal employees than other peers.
I have seen that the loyalty of these employees is at such a high level that, they are not ready to quit the job even if the company went into a recession or on the verge of the closing shutter. They are even ready to work without pay until the company reaches a sustainable level.
Having loyal and trustworthy people working for us is the dream of every company no matter big or small. Because this is what makes the company big, successful, and valuable. This helps the company to run for a longer period of time with a maintained customer-savvy attitude and generate good monetary returns.
But unfortunately, only a few of them are able to create this level of loyalty in workers. Some of the companies and organizations are struggling to achieve this from the foundation to still today.
Now you must be wondering what on the planet earth makes them so loyal? Why they are ready to give their 101% to the company and or organization even with less and irregular pay? What is the psychology of their attachment to the company? What is the psychology behind creating loyalty?

1. STRONG LEADERSHIP
This is the first and foremost factor that affects the loyalty of the employees. A weak leader creates dishonest and low-performing employees.
Leadership has a great impact on the company from every single aspect. It is found that if employees respect and admire their leaders they are more likely follow them and love to work underneath them.
Now, what the strong leadership really means?
Strong leadership means the leader is confident about his job, confident about the decisions he makes, has a clear vision of what he is doing, and where he wanted his company to reach in near future. Not hesitate to take calculated risks and have the ability to tolerate high-pressure situations.
A leader who is strong, ambitious, passionate, and a high value person. He wanted to make his company no. 1 in their respective field.
I know it is impossible for any single person to have all the qualities collectively but every single employee wants these qualities in their leaders.
And when leadership or top management have these qualities it helps to create loyal and high-performing employees.
Whenever people join the company they wanted to contribute to the purpose for which the company is committed. They wanted to make an impact on the company and society.
And if they found out that the company and leadership themselves are uncertain about the purpose, uncertain about where they want to reach in the future, everyone is working randomly without vision, moto, and transparency. When the employee gets the feeling of uncertainty of companies’ purpose and future goals they most likely to does not show their loyalty toward the company.
If they get that they are not contributing to a cause and not getting a chance to make an impact, it creates dishonesty because they don’t get work satisfaction.
On the other hand, when employees know that they are contributing to something larger than life, they are making an impact and their management have a clear vision over future endeavors they become loyal and remain loyal until the company maintains this standard.
3. TAKING CARE OF EMPLOYEES.
Someone has said that if you take care of your employees they will take care of your company. Everyone wants to feel safe and cared for at the workplace.
If the management succeeds to make their employees feel safe and cared chances are they become loyal to the organization.
For example, never disown them directly without a solid reason and without giving them chance to recover and surely not without listening to their side of the story.
Paying them regularly with dedicated yearly increments and bonuses. Taking care of working hours, sick leaves, annual and maternity leaves. Providing them medical and accidental insurance including family.
If possible, arrange transportation and accommodation for them. Arrange the get-togethers and fun tours for them and their family.
Take strict action against misbehaving, discriminating and bully employees no matter what their rank is.
No matter how big and reputed a company you have it is normal for workers to feel burned out and dissatisfied at some moment. And as a leader or manager or CEO, this is exactly where you need to work on.
4. GOOD WORK CULTURE.
Toxic work culture is responsible for dishonest and low-performing employees. As per one survey, if the company has toxic work culture, the workers are most likely to leave a job even if they are paid a high salary.
This explains how crucial role good work culture plays.
If you want to make your employees dead loyal to your company you must focus and promote healthy, pleasant, and engaging work culture for your employees. Such as the culture where people support each other, appreciate each other work, do not indulge in discrimination and office politics.
Good and positive work culture responsible for good mental health and helps to enhance the performance.
