Less than half of employees today can assert that they have felt committed (46%), fulfilled (28%), or excited (26%) about work in the last month. And one in four (25%) have been angry.
– Fewer 18-24 year olds than those who are 45+ could describe themselves as committed (40% vs. 50%) or fulfilled (23% vs. 31%) in relation to their jobs in the past four weeks.
Additionally, more than half (52%) report that they get more excited about their jobs from themselves, not others in the company – perhaps suggesting that leaders need to be a stronger source of inspiration for the company’s employees.
– More men than women (56% vs. 48%) get most of their enthusiasm about work from themselves.
