How Employers Can Navigate the Quiet Quitting, Hiring, and Firing Trends

You may have noticed #QuietQuitting all over social media, or heard about a TikTok video by Zaid Khan, an engineer in his twenties, who discusses the trend of those who feel that life is more than the hustle of working long hours and going the extra mile. Instead, he expresses the view that it’s okay to show up and simply fulfill the requirements in your job description and then leave, as we aren’t defined by our work.

This philosophy isn’t just being adopted by twenty-year-olds and TikTokers, however. Over 50% of American workers could be called quiet quitters, according to Gallup, and though many are under 35, as many as 18% of workers of all ages are disengaged.

The quiet quitting trend started in 2021, after the pandemic and at the beginning of the great resignation. At the same time, quiet firing and hiring have risen.

Managing Remote Workplace Employees

Managing remote employees can be tricky but overcoming challenges in the hybrid workplace is achievable.

However, it’s important to be aware that there are signs that a hybrid work plan may not be the most effective for a company. As per the survey conducted by Owl Labs, globally, 16% of the total employees are working remotely, whereas 62% have opted for working hybrid.
