In the course of coaching executives, we frequently refer to
annual statistical data around the engagement, or lack thereof, of the
American workforce. For the last decade, the numbers have been static: roughly
one third of the workforce are extremely engaged, 50% are neither engaged nor
disengaged, and one sixth is actively disengaged and even sabotaging their
workplace. Gallup estimates the cost of disengagement at half a trillion
dollars per year in lost productivity.
