Get insights into quiet quitting and how you can fix it as an employee/employer

According to research, only 15 per cent of employees are actively engaged at work, meaning up to 85% could quit. Source: Gallup report.

Quiet quitting is an application of work-to-rule, where employees work within defined hours and engage in work-related activities solely within those hours. For many, “quiet quitting” is mentally checking out from work. In this case, you are still performing your duties, but you are no longer subscribing to the hustle culture and mentality that your whole life should revolve around work. Many employees are going through the “quiet quitting” phase knowingly and unknowingly.

For November’s mentoring session, we are pleased to have Sarah Clarke, an Organisational Psychologist, join us. Sarah will share a practical model for people to use in their workplaces to help them address the ‘quiet quitting’ aka engagement challenge. This session will be based on the science of human behaviour and proven research, including psychological theories. For this session, we will be enlightened on the following:

• What is Quiet Quitting, and is it new?

• How do we manage it as an employer and an employee?

• How does it affect the workplace

• What can we do to combat it?
