According to Gallup’s U.S. employee engagement survey, a third of American workers are engaged.
Actively disengaged employees in the U.S. cost businesses $483 billion to $605 billion each year in lost productivity. But productivity isn’t the only disengagement “tax” on companies.

- voluntary and involuntary turnover
- stress and anxiety inflicted on peers and managers
- your consumer brand
- customer satisfaction
