"Overall, just 10% of employed residents in Western Europe are engaged -- that is, involved in and enthusiastic about their work." Gallup Survey 2017

In our lifetimes, we spend approximately 80,000 hours working in total in our careers.

Do you want to belong to the 10% of people who feel fulfilled in their work, or stay a part of the 90% who are disengaged?
