Loyalty is dead, or is it? Loyalty Unplugged: How to Get, Keep & Grow All Four Generations definitively answers this question. The book reframes from the concept of loyalty against the design and execution of people strategies and instead suggests that the goal of people  leaders should be to create employee engagement not loyalty. The four generations in the workplace - Traditionalist, Baby Boomer, Gen X and Gen Y - demonstrate different workplace behaviors because of their unique identities. Leaders must maximize those behaviors while managing the differences to create an engaged workforce.

Loyalty Unplugged clarifies how to get, keep, and grow your human capital by responding to the generational identities. The book outlines what your organization must do to build an engaged workforce. It shows leaders how to demonstrate the characteristics of organizational engagement.

This book is based on more than three years of research and client work. It is a comprehensive reference guide for all leaders responsible for getting, keeping, and growing high-performance employees. It tackles the why, what, and how to, within recruitment, orientation, total rewards programs, employee brand promises, career- pathing, learning and development, mentoring, performance management, succession planning and management practices.
