The Gallup Survey Report:  State of the American Workplace (2010-2012)

  • 30% of American workers are “engaged”
  • 70% of American workers are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged”
  • 52% of American workers are not engaged
  • 18% of American workers are actively disengaged
  • Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. between $450 – $550 billion a year in lost productivity.
  • These percentages have not changed appreciably since Gallup began surveying the workforce in 2000

Our principles for the creation of an engaged workforce:

  • Safety and Security are the foundation of human needs (Maslow) – Safety is a great place to build engagement
  • Leaders must model the engagement behaviors
  • Find employees that are already engaged – especially those that have peer respect
  • Partner on a project to create an example of what involved/engaged employees can accomplish
  • Celebrate – Communicate – Educate
  • Preserve the trust – protect the flock
  • Bring along others that are new or not engaged
  • Achieving “Critical Mass” is necessary
