Keep Trying To Engage Employees

“I’m hearing that quiet quitting is about employees setting boundaries.” – Sharlyn Lauby

I am still on the Quiet Quitting topic!

Here is an excerpt from a post by Sharlyn Lauby (@HRBartender).

To me, quiet quitting sounds like what happens when organizations don’t plan and communicate then dump work on employees. Then employees push back against how they are treated. Remember that old saying, “A lack of planning on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on my part.”? Employees are smart. They don’t want to be taken for granted or taken advantage of.

This one paragraph describes what I have observed happening in CPA firms for years.

Per Lauby, there are some things you can do if you truly want to address quiet quitting:

  • Plan better
  • Communicate earlier
  • Ask for help
  • Be flexible
  • Say thanks and mean it

These should be easy things to do. Read her entire article (a short read) to learn more about each of these things you can do.
