Loyalty Awardees

Thank you for your zeal and dedication.

Loyalty is one of the concepts represented in TRIPLE* - and just like the rest of the core values of WMSI, it is impressed upon employees old and new.  But what does loyalty actually mean? When can we say that an employee is loyal to the company?

A very good mentor once told me - while being with just one company for a long period instantly suggests loyalty, it is not necessarily so all the time.  

Protecting the interest of the company.  That is one of the more important manifestations of loyalty.  

If you see something wrong and you say something about it, if another employee is lax and we give reminders and encouragement, if we guard the policies and procedures that ensure anything inimical to the core values is prevented - that is definite and undeniable loyalty as well.
