Silent Quitting: A Closer Look


Posted Oct 06, 2023

Silent quitting, also known as quiet quitting, is when employees disengage from their work and only do the bare minimum required for their job, without going above and beyond. Therefore, it is a way of expressing dissatisfaction with their job or company without physically quitting.

This is characterized by a lack of motivation, reduced productivity, and disinterest in the job. Additionally, employees who engage in this typically don’t seek new opportunities or promotions due to their evident lack of effort. This disengagement can harm a business’s profitability, as having too many disengaged employees can result in decreased profits

Recognizing Silent Quitting

This can be challenging, as it often requires employers to be attentive to subtle signs and changes in employee behaviour. Employers may have a feeling that something is not right with certain employees who don’t seem like themselves. Therefore, it is important for employers to regularly check in with their employees and create an open and supportive work environment where employees feel comfortable expressing their concerns and dissatisfaction

Addressing Silent Quitting

This requires proactive measures from employers and managers. Therefore it is crucial to identify the underlying reasons for employee disengagement and take steps to address them.

Possible Strategies to Combat Silent Quitting
