#PayChat Roundup: Are You Engaged at Work?

Only 13 percent of workers around the world are engaged at work, according to a recent Gallup poll. If you're part of the other 87 percent, today's #PayChat was made for you.

PayScale's monthly #PayChats allow Twitter users to speak their minds about the issues that inspire (and annoy) them at work. Today's chat started off with a few questions:

  1. What is the ideal workplace?
  2. What keeps employees engaged? Salary? Benefits? Job Satisfaction? Job Meaning? Working Conditions? Flexibility? Boss?
  3. How does the relationship between employee and manager affect engagement?
  4. What are some common reasons why employees leave jobs?

Here, in no particular order, are a few of our favorite responses. If you're struggling to stay motivated and positive at work, you'll be glad to see that you're not alone.
