The verdict is in. Americans are bored with their jobs.
Seventy percent of employees report being not engaged or actively disengaged from their work and it's costing U.S. companies $550 billion each year in lost productivity.
That's a lot of people. That's a lot of money.
External incentives, such as flextime or financial bonuses aren't reversing the trend. Clearly, we need a new approach to employee engagement. One that addresses the cause rather than the symptoms of disengagement.
