"Quiet Quitting"

by Scheyett, Anna (2022)


While definitions vary, they all agree that in quiet quitting, one does not literally quit one's job, but rather simply does the work that is expected of the position, without going above and beyond what is expected (Pearce, 2022). This phenomenon, first noted on TikTok, has become widespread. A recent Gallup poll found that quiet quitters made up over one half of US employees in the second quarter of 2022 (Harter, 2022).
