Even the lottery won’t make some workers quit

by |
If you won the lottery, would you quit your job? That’s the question that was asked of more than a thousand workers. Perhaps surprisingly, many people would not leave. The results are a testament to the value of investing in employee engagement.

Interestingly, the numbers of those who would look for a different job if they won the lottery are not too far from those who are wanting to leave their jobs in reality.

In a fall 2013 study of employee engagement, Modern Survey found that 47% of disengaged workers are looking to leave their jobs. Moreover, 19% of “under engaged” or “moderately engaged” workers, and 15% of “fully engaged” workers, were looking to leave.
