Steps Businesses can Take to Address Gen Z Workers “Quietly Quitting”

Workers, particularly Gen Z, are quietly quitting organizations, which could be dangerous and hinder development. According to the Wall Street Journal, Quiet Quitters reject the hustle and bustle culture and do nothing more than what they need to do to stay in their workplaces.

Business leaders can address the issue of workers “Quietly Quitting” by taking a number of steps, including clarifying their values, listening to Gen Z workers, encouraging quiet quitters to become more engaged, and actively hiring workers who want to take on more responsibility.

Business leaders are advised to make their values clear, as that will prevent the risk of people becoming confused about the importance of work in their organizations. Without explicit values, workers are unlikely to engage.

It is important that organizations listen to their Gen Z workers as this can help improve the company’s market and involve young workers in the realization of a convincing vision for the future of the company.

Business leaders must also devise policies that encourage greater employee engagement.

It is also important that they actively hire new people who share their values and have an appetite for professional growth.
