“Engaged” Workers Would Keep Jobs Upon Winning Lottery
Disengaged workers would be more likely to eye a career change
The $648 million Mega Millions jackpot this week had many Americans dreaming about how their lives would change if they had won. For U.S. workers whom Gallup classifies as “engaged” in their jobs, these dreams do not include quitting them. Nearly two-thirds say they would continue to work in their current job if they won a $10 million lottery prize.
Workers Value Great Workplaces Over Riches
This commitment is unique among engaged workers, whom Gallup defines as involved in and enthusiastic about their work and their workplace. Less than half of those who do not have the same level of engagement with their workplace would keep their same job. Forty-two percent of U.S. workers categorized as “not engaged” with their workplaces and 20% of “actively disengaged” workers say they would continue to work in their current job upon winning $10 million in the lottery.
