Five Ways to Get Out of a Work Rut

    Nearly 70% of people are unhappy with their jobs. Here's how to defy the odds.

    If you’re an employed member of society, chances are good that you’ve felt checked out, burned out or out of touch with the excitement you once had for your job.

    Only about a third of employees in the United States consider themselves engaged at work. More than half of employed Americans describe themselves as not engaged, and 17.2% say they are actively disengaged, according to a recent Gallup poll. These figures are not out of the ordinary, given employee engagement has averaged below 33% over the last 15 years. But just because disengagement is the norm doesn’t mean employees can’t do anything about it.

     Experts agree that there are multiple steps that you can take to reengage with your work short of looking for a new job. While a new environment or career shift is an option, try these tactics for rediscovering your passion for your work.
