A popular term being thrown around social media these days is “quiet quitting,” by those who don’t actually quit their jobs, but seek a better work-life balance by not going beyond their job descriptions and not do anything extra at work.
The term appears to have come from the Covid-19 pandemic among workers who feel they’re not getting the recognition and rewards that should come with going above and beyond the call of duty, but quite often don’t.
Few will argue the importance of work-life balance, family time or recognition for a job well done, so there may come a need for employers to listen to such concerns, especially if they face labour shortages in the post-pandemic years.
Would your employer listen to such concerns? Is quiet quitting necessary at the golf business where you work?
If somebody did decide to become a quiet quitter, should it be grounds for termination?
That’s the question in this week’s GNN Poll.
