    According to a recent Gallup survey, 70 percent of workers aren’t that into their jobs.

    That means only 3 in 10 of those surveyed, "were engaged, or involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their workplace."

    On the bright side, this equals the highest number of interested workers since Gallup began tracking employee engagement in 2000.

    The absence of enthusiasm is estimated to be costing businesses between 450 and 550 billion dollars a year due to lowered productivity.

    Recognizing that the problem exists doesn’t seem to be changing matters. One of Gallup’s chief scientist points out that, “there is a gap between knowing about engagement and doing something about it in most American workplaces."

    The small percentage of businesses that are getting it right are reaping huge rewards. Companies with 9.3 enthusiastic employees for every dissatisfied employee enjoyed an average of 147 percent higher earnings per share than their competition did from 2011 to 2012.
