70% of Americans are Not Engaged at Work

70%. That’s how many workers are ‘not engaged’ while at work. Those numbers come from Gallup’s State of the American Workplace report, an ongoing study from 2010 through 2012 which looks for insights on what leaders can do to improve employee performance and engagement at the workplace. Whether killing time at work surfing the net, or simply putting in the lowest effort on a boring project, American workers are working more while doing less.

It’s not just about helping employers though. This kind of research benefits everyone. By providing employees with more meaningful work they not only work harder, they also go home knowing they spent their time working for a good reason. Win-win.

Every day people fall in love and get married… including on the tropical island of Bali in Indonesia. Similar to engagement photos in America, Balinese photographers offer “pre-wedding” photo packages to happy couples before they have their official weddings. The various photographers take their couples to exotic places on the island including the beaches, jungles, waterfalls and temples.
