Do the bosses at your place of work use the same management methods as their fathers or even grandfathers?
Gallup has a proposal. Blow them all up (The methods, not the managers!)
They issued a report today on the subject. It concludes:
"The American workforce has more than 100 million full-time employees. One-third of those employees are what Gallup calls engaged at work. They love their jobs, enjoy their teams and customers, contribute, have great ideas, believe in the mission, feel their job uses their strengths -- and they make their organization and America better every day.
At the other end, 16% of employees are actively disengaged -- they are miserable in the workplace and seem to exist only to destroy what the most engaged employees are building.
The remaining 51% of employees are not engaged -- they're just there."
Gallup of course isn't completely giving away their expertise. They want companies to hire them to help transform the workplace.
But the report is interesting. Are you engaged at work? Disengaged? Or just there?
