A few months back I posted about the difference between job satisfaction and passion. I suggested that, if the question were asked, "Do you feel passionate about your job," the percentage that answered affirmatively would be much smaller than those who were merely "satisfied."
Looks like I was right. A newly released survey of 7,718 American workers found that:
...only 45 percent of workers say they are satisfied (33 percent) or extremely satisfied (12 percent) with their jobs. At the same time, a much lower number actually feel very "engaged" by their jobs. Only 20 percent feel very passionate about their jobs; less than 15 percent agree that they feel strongly energized by their work; and only 31 percent (strongly or moderately) believe that their employer inspires the best in them.
Sounds like I need to bring my message to the corporate world.
