Only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged in their jobs, according to 2011-2012 numbers collected by Gallup. What does that mean for where you live and work?
Our map below shows engagement data on the countries polled by Gallup, and includes regional insights into where the problems lie — and how they might be fixed. The numbers only include people who work for an employer, and stretch across industries and sectors. Click here or on the image below to explore the full interactive map.
As you navigate it, some key definitions from Gallup to keep in mind:
“Engaged employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.”
“Not engaged employees (we use “unengaged” on our map) are essentially checked out. They’re sleepwalking through their workday putting time — but not energy or passion — into their work.”
“Actively disengaged employees aren’t just unhappy at work; they’re busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.”
