If you haven't heard, it's worth repeating: Gallup revealed that in 2015, only 32 percent of U.S. workers were considered "engaged" in their jobs, meaning they were involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their work.

The majority (50.8 percent) were "not engaged," meaning they showed up and killed time, doing the minimum required with rare extra effort. These were the people thinking about lunch and waiting for the clock to hit 5 p.m.

The other 17.2 percent in Gallup's research were "actively disengaged." You don't want this bunch working for you: These employees were either checked-out or just going through the motions.

That's a lot of unhappy people!
