Loyalty and Work

Laughing all the Way to Work

Some of us stay in the same job from high school until retirement. They are loyal while in their job, but don’t mind moving somewhere else if it is a wise career move, if the salary and benefits are better or if there are more opportunities for advancement. I noticed a co-worker putting on a hat with a competitor’s logo. It made me think of loyalty in the workplace. How loyal are you to your company?

On the Outside Looking In

Laughing all the Way to Work

A more experienced assistant is also looking for a higher salary, where a younger assistant is usually willing to work for less money because they don’t have the experience. In Ontario, Canada, it is no longer mandatory to retire at 65 years of age and the baby boomers are fast approaching this age. In 1985 I left the office to be a stay-at-home mom. By 1995 when I tried to get back into the administrative field the landscape had changed.

I'm back!!

Laughing all the Way to Work

In 2008 I took a job as an Executive Assistant and Corporate Secretary to a non-profit corporation. I was calling it early retirement for lack of a better term. I gave them lots of notice and was going to 'semi-retire' in three months. I recall the HR Director saying to me that she thought I was semi-retiring and was only going to take a part-time job when I left.
