Are the Worst-Performing Workers the Happiest?

Perhaps no surprise to many workers - who've long seen the connection between slacking off and satisfaction on the job - a new study claims that the happiest employees are often the worst-performing ones.
Nearly half of private sector companies polled say their lowest performers report being more "engaged" (a term used synonymously with "happy") than their highest performers. That's according to data passed along by Government Executive, the "premier website for federal managers and executives."
Underperformers are happier, apparently, because some higher-ups are too squeamish to demand better work, leaving poor workers in blissful ignorance. Managers then make up for the incomplete or shoddy work themselves, meaning that the best performing workers experience more stress and a lack of "confidence that the organization is a meritocracy."
GE asks what this might mean for folks in government work:
“animis opibusque parati”

Seems to me the worst-performing workers are always striking. LOL.
