Feeling pressured to gain acceptance to an elite college? Don’t. According to a new Gallup-Purdue University study, it’s not where you study that matters in life, but what happens while you’re there. Researchers surveyed 30,000 college graduates and found that a person’s overall well-being and engagement in their work after college has little to do with where they went to school, but rather is influenced by the formative experiences they had while they were there.
Only 13 percent of workers across the world are "engaged" in their work, according to Gallup. That's actually a 2 percent improvement for stats from the previous year. Still, it's sad to think of 87 percent of workers toiling away at a job that doesn't make them happy. What can we do, short of winning the lottery and buying the company, to make work a more engaging experience?
