Only 30% of American workers are engaged in or committed to their workplace

Only 30% of American workers are engaged, or involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their workplace, according to Gallup.

An alarming 70% of American workers are not showing up to work committed to delivering their best performance, and this has serious implications for the bottom line of individual companies and the U.S. economy as a whole.

Of the 70% of American workers who are not reaching their full potential, 52% are not engaged, and another 18% are actively disengaged. These employees are emotionally disconnected from their companies and may actually be working against their employers’ interests; they are less productive, are more likely to steal from their companies, negatively influence their coworkers, miss workdays, and drive customers away.

Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. $450 billion to $550 billion in lost productivity per year.
