Only 6% of Chinese employees said they are"engaged" in their jobs, according to a global Gallup survey released this month。


Workers across all income levels and industries were surveyed by Gallup in China, defined byGallup to mean they were "psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be makingpositive contributions to their organisations"。


Out of 94 countries polled, only six countries scored lower rates of job engagement thanChina, including Tunisia, Israel and Syria. Unsurprisingly, 0% of Syrians admitted to beingengaged at work。


In a related survey, China ranked near the bottom in a poll measuring job satisfaction among22 Asian countries. Only 49% of Chinese respondents said they were happy in their jobs。


Part of the problem is that very few in China have the luxury of pursuing a career that trulyinterests them。


Even university graduates often feel they have no choice but to opt for positions with thegovernment or state-run enterprises, since those jobs are thought to be stable and recession-proof。


That makes those who are happy at work in China a rare find indeed。


The BBC's ongoing My Day series tracked a typical day in a selection of people across Asia whoare immersed in rewarding jobs, including some from China - a maternity nurse and a jack ofall trades designer。


The latest instalment in the series tracks the work of a Chinese genealogist. Huihan Lie runsthe company My China Roots in Beijing, which traces family histories and tries to put them inthe context of the time。


"With every project, you find things you weren't expecting to find and the client wasn'texpecting to find," he says. "Really, every person has their own little quirks and personalstories."
