Gallup Poll Finds Employee Engagement Nearing All Time Lows.
The survey found that the majority of American workers across the board are not engaged in their jobs; more than two thirds of workers or 71% are not engaged in their current positions. Further 19% of the workforce is “actively disengaged.” These findings are consistent across most demographics, with the exception being those workers aged 65 or older who expressed more job engagement than any other segment. Income and gender had little effect on the statistics; however, workers with high school education or less ranked 6% to 7% higher in terms of engagement than their more educated counterparts.
The complete Gallup Poll results provide more details that paint a pretty grim picture about the state of job satisfaction in the United States.
