87% of Employees Worldwide “Not Engaged”

Posted By NWI, Monday, November 7, 2016

An astonishing 87% of employees worldwide are “not engaged” with their work, resulting in low productivity for a vast array of companies that may or may not be aware of the problem. Gallup is defining “engaged” as meaning “involved in, enthusiastic about and committed to their work.

 

 

The United States does have a higher average of worker engagement than the worldwide average, but still only has a 32% engagement rate, meaning that 68% of US employees are not actively engaged in their jobs. In the 15 years that Gallup has performed this poll, the engagement rate of US employees has never topped the 33% mark.

 

Breaking this down further, 50.8% of employees polled in the US claimed that they were “not engaged,” compared to 17.2% who claimed to be “actively disengaged.” Those disengaged workers commonly rate problems with company management as reasons for their lack of engagement.

 

Why does this matter? It matters because companies who have an engaged workforce see returns on their investment 150% higher than companies with a disengaged workforce.
