Survey of the Day — Most Workers Are ‘Not Engaged’ in Their Job

71 percent of American workers are either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” in their work.

According to Gallup’s employee engagement index, which is based on workers’ responses to 12 workplace elements, 19 percent of the employed are actively disengaged in their work, 52 percent are not engaged, and only 29 percent feel engaged in their jobs.

Those who have at least some college experience are less likely to be engaged at work than those who are high school graduates or less, and workers in the 65 and older group are the most engaged. (Perhaps because they enjoy their jobs so much they choose to keep working rather than retire.)

Worker disengagement is a problem, because previous studies have found that employees who aren’t emotionally attached to their jobs are less productive.
