The majority of Americans don’t enjoy their work. According to a study of workplaces in more than 140 countries from 2011 through 2012 conducted by Gallup:
30 percent of Americans are engaged at work. These people are emotionally invested in their work and focused on doing their jobs well.
52 percent of Americans are not engaged at work. These workers do enough to fulfill their job requirements, but they are not motivated or inspired by their work.
18 percent of Americans are actively disengaged. According to the study, workers labeled actively disengaged have a negative attitude toward their company, and some are downright hostile.
