The disconnect between prosperity and purpose

An incredibly high number of people express dissatisfaction with their jobs. A recent study sought to more accurately define the term “good job” and determine how many Americans had them.

The survey found the top three components of a “good job” were enjoyable day-to-day work, stable and predictable pay, and a sense of purpose but also found only 40% of employees felt they had these things.

A recent Gallup survey found that while the number of employees who feel “engaged” at work is the highest it’s been in years, that number is still only 34% in the United States and 15% internationally.
