According to a Gallup Poll 71 percent of American workers were not “engaged” or were “actively disengaged” in their work. This correlated with these employees’ performance at work as well.  They didn’t measure it, but I bet these same employees were disengaged at home too. Many of us spend more time at work than we do at home, and when we aren’t happy at work it trickles down to our home life as well.

When I see couples for counseling they aren’t only miserable in their relationships, but they are miserable at work too. We forget the importance of job satisfaction. When people are happy at work feeling valued and esteemed for what they do, that generalizes to their home life. A parent is a better parent if they feel good about what they do every day at work. A spouse is a better spouse if they feel as though they are valued and competent with their career.

In this economical environment, how do we find job satisfaction? When a study reports that the majority of employees doesn’t care about their work and are basically going to work to get a paycheck, then job satisfaction is already compromised. This is sure to affect productivity or customer service but it also affects the employee. Job stress, job injuries, and disability are all part of job satisfaction. If you feel as though you are one of those disengaged workers, the New Year provides an opportunity to change. Blaming your employer gives them the power and affords you none. If you take responsibility for changing your attitude, and your work life, things will change for you, and your family.  You will minimize stress at home, improve your sense of confidence, improve your health, and have more energy.
