In recent years, the turnover rate among all US organizations has increased exponentially. As employers demand hybrid work opportunities, better pay, and an overall productive and positive work environment, it’s becoming difficult for organizations to retain top talent.

However, quitting is not the only concern for executives and recruiters. Many are now raising questions about the impact of quiet quitting and are keen to strategize against this newfound recruitment problem.

In this blog today, we’ll explore the signs of quiet quitting, its impact on an organization, and discuss ideas to prevent it from happening in your workplace.

What is Quiet Quitting?

Quiet quitting is the phase where an employee, due to burnout, lack of validation, or negative management styles, mentally checkouts. Physically, you may see the employee coming in every day. However, in their head, they have long left your organization, and it’s only a matter of time before they submit their resignation.

Signs of Quiet Quitting

Albeit becoming common, recruitment consultants say that bosses are still unaware of the signs of quiet quitting. To learn if you have a disengaged employee on the verge of quitting, here are the signs to look out for.

  1. Reduced Productivity: The employee is just giving their bare minimum and seems disinterested.
  2. Increased Absenteeism: Suddenly, the number of sick leaves and unexpected days off has increased as the employee becomes disengaged.
  3. Lack of Initiative: Whether in team meetings or project management, the employee lacks a proactive attitude and takes no initiative.

Impact of Quiet Quitting

Quiet quitting is a problematic situation for any organization to be in. And here are some of the long-term impacts of quiet quitting among employees.

  1. High Turnover: Whether it’s a junior position or a CFO recruitment, high turnover is a cost-intensive and time-consuming problem to solve.
  2. Poor Team Morale: When one person is disengaged, the whole team feels the impact.
  3. Negative Work Environment: Overall, the workplace environment becomes negative, and lack of productivity dominates.

What To Do?

To make sure that quiet quitting is not fostering among your employees, we suggest recruiting CFOs and CEOs who are positive and team builders.
