Dealing with ‘quiet quitting’ at work

THE term “quiet quitting” has become a buzzword these days. For those who aren’t familiar with it, it refers to an employee’s attitude of putting less effort into his/her work. The employee does his/her job by putting in the minimum effort to avoid being fired.

This could be due to personal and psychological reasons – employees may want to achieve better mental health, for instance. Many believe this approach reduces burnout and sets healthier work/life boundaries. Since Covid-19, surveys show that many employees now value a good work-life balance far more than older generations.
