Quiet quitting is a workplace trend, and it’s happening more often than you think. But what does “quiet quitting” mean? It means employees are withdrawing from their roles without formally resigning. It can be harmful to businesses, and can lead to a loss of institutional knowledge and decreased productivity. However, it can also be an opportunity for businesses to adjust to a new paradigm in the workplace, evolve your company culture and improve motivation.
Quiet quitting is not just about employees looking for a better work/life balance, although this is one element of it.
With quiet quitting, employees may withdraw from their roles to a degree without formally resigning. Quiet quitting can also manifest itself in more serious ways, such as decreased productivity, significant disengagement, and it can lead to a loss of institutional knowledge or even company departures entirely without notice.
When employees don’t feel valued or heard, they’re much more likely to withdraw from their roles – and that’s when quiet quitting happens.
If your company is struggling with employee motivation and morale, there are a few things you can do to positively impact change:
Quiet quitting is particularly problematic for sales forces. A salesperson who is disengaged is much less likely to sell, which will have a direct impact on company revenue. If you’re struggling with employee motivation in your sales force, it’s even more important to take the steps expressed above.
At the end of the day, your team needs to feel motivated in order to contribute their best work. When they don’t feel motivated, it can lead to disengagement and eventually, quiet quitting. By taking the time to listen to your employees and give them what they need, you can create a more engaged and balanced workforce.
Companies should start by assessing whether employees in their organization are already quiet quitting by looking at productivity levels and employee satisfaction and engagement survey scores. If employees are already disengaged, it’s important to take action to rectify the situation. Listening to employees, understanding their needs, and giving them what they need to best succeed is a good place to start.
