Americans who love their jobs really love their jobs. Gallup asked “engaged” workers whether they would quit working if they won the lottery, and only 25% said they would. Another 12% said they would take another job, and 63% said they’d stick it out in their current position.
Meanwhile, 40% of “actively disengaged” would quit work altogether. Gallup also notes that these workers aren’t emotionally involved in their jobs and tend to be less productive. For them, it’s only about the paycheck.
Previous Gallup research indicated that in industries with relatively low turnover, engaged employees experienced 65% less turnover than employees who are not.
