    Practical advice from a leadership expert.

Why are people suddenly quiet quitting?

“Quiet quitting” describes the practice of employees doing the bare minimum required of their jobs, not answering emails after work or on weekends and generally sticking to their job description.

According to Gallup’s survey in June of over 15,000 full-time and part-time U.S. workers, some 50% of respondents met the definition of quiet quitting, a term that has bubbled up to describe a prevalent worker mindset at a moment when the pandemic has upended employees’ priorities.

The Gallup study also noted a 29% engagement for those who worked onsite, compared to 37% engagement for those who had either worked remotely or within a hybrid schedule.

What started as a TikTok rant against the “hustle culture” has ricocheted across social media. It’s the latest sign that employees are setting stricter boundaries around the work/life balance: not taking on new assignments, shutting their laptop off at 5 p.m. on the dot and generally slacking off.

In this informative webinar, leadership expert Catherine Rymsha, lecturer and TEDx speaker, identifies ways to turn quiet quitters into “wow” workers.

Agenda for Quiet Quitters

  • Managers need to engage. Increase your own motivation. At this point, only about a third of managers are engaged in their jobs. Set the example.
  • Improve your social and interpersonal skills so that employees feel more valued. Such engagement will lead to higher levels of productivity at work and less inclination towards quiet quitting.
  • Prepare the discussion. The best questions to ask.
  • Sit down with your employees individually and in teams, and have an open, candid dialogue about what is and isn’t working for them.
  • Show you care. Show interest in people’s lives. Ask questions and really listen. Remember important information such as birthdays, anniversary dates, the names of family members and important events in the lives of your team.
  • People want to be part of something bigger than themselves. Your job as a leader is to help make that link.
  • Slacking off vs. quiet quitting. Identify what your employees need to keep them engaged and energized.
