BLUF'Quiet quitting' is when workers don't particularly enjoy their jobs, do as little as possible and don't feel that their work requires them to go beyond the bare minimum.
Shay Bloch writing for Fast Company, notes that work can be improved by:
- Providing a work environment where people can use their creativity to find solutions to problems.
- Providing more flexibility, autonomy, and purpose.
- Allowing people to work part of their time from home (hybrid) or as freelancers.
- Giving employees better tools or information to help them do their work.
