Employers Beware
By: Rick Boxx
August 15, 2011

A MetLife Employee Benefits Trends report discovered that 54% of small business employers believe their workers are fiercely loyal. When employees were surveyed, however, they discovered that although 62% of employees were loyal in 2008, it has since plummeted to below 50%.

If and when the economy begins to rebound, many of these employers may be surprised to find a higher level of defections than anticipated. Part of the issue supposedly is the slashed benefits that employers have implemented during the recession.

It’s a good time for employers to remember Colossians 4:1, “Masters, provide your slaves with what is right and fair, because you know that you also have a Master in heaven.”

The challenge for employers is to determine what’s fair and right. Why not ask your employees?
