Are your staff quiet quitting? Here’s how to tell, and what you should do

As burnout becomes increasingly common in the workplace, a phenomenon known as "quiet quitting" is gaining traction. Quiet quitting refers to employees who, while not outright resigning, disengage from their work and no longer subscribe to the hustle culture mentality. Signs include mood changes, decreased enthusiasm for projects, and increased sick leave. Click here for article.

  • Quiet Quitting in the Modern Workplace: Technology has made work easier but has also blurred the boundaries between work and personal life, exacerbated by the pandemic's shift to remote work. Employees are re-evaluating their priorities, with work often at the forefront of this reassessment.

  • Leadership's Role: Leaders should strive to know their teams well to detect any changes in behavior indicating quiet quitting. A rise in resignations may signal deeper issues within the organization's culture or employee experience.

  • Supporting Staff: Leaders should engage in open, curious conversations with employees to understand their challenges and design work that fits their needs. This may include implementing boundaries between work and personal life, such as strict finish times, policies against after-hours emails, and ensuring employees take full lunch breaks.

  • Impact on Work Quality: Contrary to expectations, promoting work-life balance and supporting staff well-being can actually increase productivity. Employees are more productive when well-rested and able to recharge outside of work. This shift challenges the traditional "hustle culture" and aims to rebalance the power dynamic between employers and employees.
