NOTEBOOK: ONE GOOD READ – Quiet quitting: You may be doing it and not even know it
You’ve probably heard the term “quiet quitting” thrown around recently. But what does it mean, and it is really even a thing? This story from Business Insider takes a look at quiet quitting and whether it means workers putting an end to doing tasks they aren’t paid to do. If that’s the case, it raises the question about the “and other tasks as assigned” section of many job descriptions. But in the end, it appears nobody is actually quitting their jobs. The story also looks at what “quiet quitting” means for employers and employees, how its definition is fuzzy at best, and how in the end it is really just this: It’s workers doing what they are paid to do in the hours they’re told to it and not some crazy rebellion against well-meaning employers.
