HR Hot Topics: Quiet Quitting

Wednesday, September 14, 2022
September’s episode focuses on a phrase that has been getting a lot of attention lately – Quiet Quitting. This catchy use of alliteration has been used to describe an employee who is doing the bare minimum not to get fired.  In other words, doing no more than what is specifically required. While more and more employees view this as simply ‘doing the job’, most staffing models are built around the idea that team members will work to their full potential. When that doesn’t happen, due to personal choice, illness or competing priorities, it can cost companies billions of dollars.
