An Employers Greatest Debt

I hope I’ve never said it, because I cringe every time I hear it … “Our employees are our greatest asset”.

The relationships we have with our assets is vastly different than the relationships we should have with our employees. 
 
The last time I checked, my employees are not property. I don’t own them, and neither does the company I work for. In fact, quite the contrary.  We are simply borrowing them for 8 hours per day. They are on loan to us from their families.
Their spouses, parents, and/or children have entrusted them to us for 1/3 of every week day. Their families loan them to us every day.  We are indebted to them, and as such, these families are our creditors.
