Human resource is one of the most important assets in the development and achievement of the goals of an organization or a company. According to Hasibuan (2005), human resource management is "the science and the art of managing relationships and the role of labor to be effective and efficient, helping the realization of corporate, employee and community goals". Talking about Human Resources, it will not be separated from leadership and employees because these two important elements have their respective roles in running a company. In a leadership, there is a leadership style that is expected to advance the company and the welfare of employees. Every leader has a different leadership behavior called a leadership style. A good leadership style is implemented to improve employee performance and to provide motivation to employees (Fatmawati, 2013). A good leader will not exist without a good subordinate, and vice versa. Both leaders and subordinates need each other to work together to make the company more advanced. In general, the challenge of a leader not only focuses on the addition of productivity or employee work motivation, but also makes employees have a sense of loyalty to the company. It is because employee loyalty does not come by itself, but it takes the role of leaders and good management. According to Soegandhi and Sutanto (2013), loyalty will arise if a leader is able to maintain comfort in his work environment. Comfort is the result of policies issued and implemented within the work unit that he leads. It is reflected in the leadership style of an employer. Thus, it is very important for leaders to apply the right leadership style so that employee loyalty can be maintained. However, it is not easy to grow a sense of employee’s loyalty to the work they perform. The support from colleagues will help employees to improve their performance coupled with the support from leaders will help employees to remain loyal to the job (Full, 2013). At the present time, loyalty of the employees is not merely performing their duties and obligations as an employee in accordance with its job description, but doing the best possible to produce the best for the organization, (Soegandhi and Sutanto, 2013). Therefore, companies should be able to influence employee loyalty by providing job facilities, providing welfare benefits, and providing adequate wages (Martiwi et al ., 2012).
RJOAS, 1(73), January 2018 99 Employee loyalty is the most important and must be owned by every employee in the company or any agency. Based on research that has been done, A. Suyunus Adiwibowo (2012) states that companies need employees who have high loyalty because with the high loyalty of employees, the employees can work in accordance with the standards given by the company and can improve the quality of work. Low employee loyalty can result in reduced productivity, high absenteeism, and non-compliance of employees to their employers (Nitisemito, 1991). Then, it can lead to behavior that is contrary to company goals that can damage the vision and mission of the company.
