What is Quiet Quitting?

Quiet Quitting Is A New Attitude

This 2022 it has become somewhat of a popular topic or some can even say a trend in TikTok about “quiet quitting”, this has raised a nationwide discussion among Gen Z, millennials, even as far as directly within the BPO Industry, where business owners, HR Manager and Recruiters are discussing the pro’s and con’s of quiet quitting. 

Quiet quitting has reached a level of performing the required minimum of the job while not aiming to go above and beyond the job description. There is no initiative to do more in a task or project and employees are seen as becoming inactive or withdrawing from the culture of the company. Quiet quitting can affect the relationship between the teams and the employer and the culture of the company.  

Quiet quitting can be started by giving employees a bunch of tasks that are not supposed to be in the job role or mandatory and unpaid overtime and sometimes a workplace that is not dynamic. Another reason is also not offering exciting benefits and perks, or lacking in career growth and promotions. 

At this moment, most job seekers realize that they don’t need a company that has a toxic culture. Most millennials and gen Z prioritize mental health over a higher salary. In the end, the employees just want a place where they will be accepted, valued and have room to grow at their own pace, in a supportive and nurturing environment.
