The Gallup Organization Report


World's Employees are Engaged


World Employees are Actively Disengaged


Shift to have more of your workforce being engaged

The Gallup Organization 2022 State of the Global Workforce report indicates that only 33% of the world’s employees are engaged in their work. What a waste of potential when you consider that businesses in the top quartile of Gallup’s database are 17% more productive and 21% more profitable than those at the bottom quartile. Consider the profound impact for your organization when Alise Cortez and Associates help shift to 60% or more of your workforce being engaged. Organizations that cultivate an environment that fosters meaning and purpose within individual employees and facilitates connection with the organization’s mission register high levels of productivity and innovation.
