It is the ability to put others first, to stick with them and support them through good times and bad. Hence there is often loyalty displayed with family, friends, and significant others.

In the workplace, loyalty can be associated with success as an individual or as an organisation. Learning to do the task to the best of ability, indicates a level of devotion to the role.

Employees who feel loyalty, remain with an organisation, reducing attrition and do not actively seek other employment opportunities.
