Year after year Gallup tells us the majority of employees are not engaged at work. Solutions are yelled from the sidelines. More surveys! Well-being! Recognition! Recruitment! Anyone else feel like we’re being a sold an array of magical cure-all diet pills that has a lot of disclaimers in the fine print?
