The Case for Delegating Smartly

The Gallup Organization surveyed 200,000 individuals in 36 organizations, across 21 industries about their level of engagement. Only 29% of employees reported that they were engaged or highly engaged at work. An astounding 55% reported that they were not engaged (think of their attitude as “wait-and-see”) and an even more revealing 16% reported that they were actively disengaged (think of behavior such as complaining, arguing and actively sabotaging the organization’s efforts).
