Over 85% of the world's workforce is at least partially disengaged or not finding joy in their work. Employees that are dedicated, enjoy their work, are challenged and find meaning in what they do are likely to be more efficient, productive and loyal. Engagement can be over exercised, however, and high engagement does not always translate to high employee well-being/fulfillment, or vice-versa. Employees can be highly engaged, yet low in well-being because they may face stress in other areas of their life that might impede their well-being. Understanding the overlapping factors specific to engagement and well-being is, therefore, necessary for extraordinary performance and leadership.
