This study was conducted to identify the impact of career pathing and test the influence of demographic profile, on employees’ loyalty in the San Jose, Occidental Mindoro private schools. The researcher used a mixed sequential exploratory research design. The respondents of this study were 102 employees of the selected private schools in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. The procedures to gather necessary data for the study involved two parts. In the first part, interview questions were used to elicit information about the factors influencing employees’ loyalty among the private schools in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro. The final themes presented and derived from the analysis of career pathing of employees of the private schools in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro resulted as follows: work environment, work engagement, leadership style, and work-life balance. Another set of themes were finalized to describe the employees’ loyalty, and these are comprised of integrity, service, and competence. It was found out that the employees’ age, sex, civil status, education, position, length of service and salary motivated them to express their loyalty through service in the form of doing things to their best ability and having no plan of leaving the school. The finding summarizes a sound career path’s low to moderate influence on employees’ loyalty. A school head with an effective leadership style, a conducive working environment, high engagement in work, and a balanced work-life would likely promote employees’ loyalty to the institution with integrity, service, and competence.
