Guest InsiderQuiet quitting is not slowly reducing your effort down to nothing. It means doing what you were hired to do and no longer going above and beyond when your extra effort is neither recognized, appreciated, or compensated. People are tired of working their asses off for no reward. PAY YOUR GOOD EMPLOYEES TO KEEP THEM. Or someone else will.
Chrissi PedleyThe concept of "quiet quitting" is just another tongue in cheek way to explain meeting your job duties/expectations/description. It's not being lazy, it's doing what you're paid to do.
Meera DaneThe "Psychological Iceberg" (www.businessballs.com/local/pix/businessballs/psyc…) has been askew for the last few years. While I get certain unwritten benefits for seniority, and my work ethic and quality, the fact that they are unwritten means they are always at risk with a new manager or a new HR person or any other organizational change. I don't find it unreasonable that one might say "I'm only doing what I was hired to do." That's a sign that 1) you didn't word your job description properly, and 2) that you need to figure out what your employees need to provide that level of consistency and loyalty. If your opinion is, "I can hire 100 people like you," to a position? The position might not be needed, and your management style needs re-training.
