A Closer Look

Germany – Only 15% of employees are engaged

Gallup has been continuously measuring and reporting German workplace engagement since 2001. One of our key findings is that, in any given year, fewer than one-fifth of employees in Germany are engaged in their jobs. Right now, only 15% of employees are engaged and 15% are actively disengaged.

This has serious effects: Actively disengaged employees aren’t merely unhappy at work — they undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish every day. This actively disengaged group costs the German economy 73 billion to 95 billion euros annually in lost productivity, according to Gallup estimates. Add the damage caused by workers who are not engaged — who put time into their jobs but not energy or passion — and the financial impact jumps to 210 billion to 275 billion euros lost.
