Loyalty to certain brands, stores, or service providers could be costing you a ton of money. The same might be true when it comes to your devotion to an employer – your loyalty might be keeping you from earning more. There are times when loyalty is appropriate and justifiable, and we’ll discuss those instances, but just be mindful of where your allegiances lie. Sure, dedication can be great in your personal life with friends and loved ones, but we want you to question your loyalty, especially when it comes to faceless corporations where there isn’t any personal connection.
- Here’s that article in Wired covering the unbelievable growth in esports
- The Stanford Business article describing the decline of the norm of reciprocity in the workplace (but in contrast, the rise of it in personal scenarios)
- In light of our conversation on this episode, Uber’s decision to deactivate accounts of riders who fail to behave puts an interesting spin on the idea of loyalty. Regardless, we agree that respect is indeed a two-way street and are excited to see steps toward accountability between any business and customer.
