A recent global Gallup survey revealed only 13% of employees (or 1 in 8) worldwide are engaged at work, psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations.
This finding is the result of a 142-country study on the State of the Global Workplace. The majority of employees worldwide i.e. 63% are "not engaged," meaning they lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organisational goals or outcomes. More concerning is that 24% are "actively disengaged", and this results in unproductive employees at work who typically spread negativity to co-workers. Sound familiar?
