The People Who Hate Their Jobs - Breathing Space Blog

As shocking as it seems to those of us who love our work, a majority of American workers either loathe their jobs or could care less about what they do. These results, coming from a Gallup poll, published in The State of the American Workplace Report, reveal that some 30% of Americans are passionate and enthusiastic about their work, and are actively engaged in their tasks on a daily basis. These are the high-performing, highly productive segments of the labor force.

According to Gallup, apparently everyone else falls far short of being actively aged and nearly 20 million workers are what Gallup terms “actively disengaged." These workers are unhappy and only too willing to convey their sense of dissatisfaction about the jobs they do. Another 50 million workers are “passively disengaged.”

In all, about 70% of our 100 million person workforce fall into the “I don't like my job” category. Thus, executives, managers, and supervisors today face a continuing challenge when it comes to enticing the 70% to consistently reach their productivity potential.
