The New Unengaged Employee

Are you driving your employees toward quiet quitting?


From the pandemic to the Great Resignation to the Great Regret, we've seen many changes in how we work, what employees will tolerate, and a colossal shift in employee expectations—all of which have contributed to a growing trend known as quiet quitting. Led by Gen Z workers and embraced by most generations, quiet quitting refers to doing what the job requires—nothing more, nothing less.

Gone are the days of employees accepting burnout and prioritizing work over their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Instead, workers are demanding more from their employers. And if businesses are unwilling to adjust to keep their employees happy, they'll likely see quiet quitting spread across their organizations.

Have you considered your role in employees doing the bare minimum to keep their jobs?

Chronic overworking, a lack of empathy, consistent work "emergencies" while employees are out of the office, not being seen—these all contribute to quiet quitting, and you probably play a bigger role than you realize. Not to worry, though—it's not too late to turn things around. 

In this article, we'll explore quiet quitting, its causes, and how you can combat quiet quitting by appreciating, recognizing, and rewarding your employees.
