(From Gallup.com) -- Employees who are in engaged in their work and workplace are twice as likely to report their organization is hiring new workers as those who are actively disengaged.

Americans report these substantial differences in their organization's hiring practices even though, collectively, Gallup finds overall U.S. job creation holding steady in recent months.

These findings are from a special Gallup Daily tracking series conducted January through June 2011 to thoroughly explore American workers' engagement levels.
