They're not lovin' it

The latest pearl of wisdom from a top management consultancy, courtesy of Michael Heseltine's new magazine World Business:

A quarter of workforce 'disengaged'
Source: Towers Perrin Global Workforce Study
Reviewed: 28-Mar-06

'In August 2005, Towers Perrin’s HR Services business consulted more than 85,000 employees working for large and mid-sized companies in 16 countries on four continents. The study is the largest of its kind taken of a single global working population.

'The survey shows that at a time when companies are focused on expansion and looking to their key talent to achieve that growth almost a quarter of employees are ‘disengaged’ and just 14% are ‘fully engaged’. The study is the largest of its kind taken of a single global working population.'

That's right. One in four admits to being disengaged. It's a good bet that at least twice as many are too canny to answer stupid questions from management consultants.
