Quiet quitting is becoming a popular topic among the HR world. Different sources describe this term as doing exactly what you need in your job, nothing more and nothing less. This is contrary to the “go above and beyond” mentality, which is normally what allows you to develop within your working place.
There are different theories about why employees are giving up to going the extra mile. One of them is the situation during the pandemic, in which mental health became a main topic, thus enhancing the importance of work-life balance.
This phenomenon can bring new challenges for HR professionals:
💪🏼 It might be necessary to explore new ways to maintain employees motivated.
💆🏻♀️ This might be an opportunity to prevent burn-outs, enhancing practices to maintain mental health among organizations.
📌 It might help to find better matches between employee and job offers, since employees are not willing to do a job they are not really motivated for.
🤝 Furthermore, the importance of organizational culture and employee wellbeing might be highlighted to the high level management within organizations.
