2022 may have been the year of quiet quitting. What are the takeaways for this year?
Well, according to this thread on Reddit’s r/antiwork subreddit, there are plenty of concrete rules you can follow if you’re planning to “quiet quit” this year. Now, as folks in the comments section suggest, there is a reason to avoid using this buzzword in 2023. Because as we all know, quiet quitting makes it seem like the employee is the only person at fault here. Really, this is all about acting your wage and ensuring that your boundaries between work and life aren’t crossed. If they are, then employees should ensure that they are compensated for that extra effort. Hopefully, now that we’re in a new year, employers can approach their reactions to “quiet quitting” with less hostility, less doubling down, and less aggression. That’s not how you’re going to motivate people. Let’s hope that 2023 will be about listening and implementing actual changes to work environments.
