According to the findings, “engaged employees are deeply involved in and enthusiastic about their work.” In prior research Gallup had found that employee engagement is positively correlated with better health and that engaged employees are less likely to be obese and to have chronic diseases.

The reason for this link is not entirely clear. It is possible, says Gallup, that workers who lack healthy habits are more prone to illness. That reduces their chance to be engaged at work.

Gallup research also shows that the way leaders manage can significantly influence employee engagement. That in turns affects worker health and the bottom line.
