Poor pay, tremendous workload, a better job offer, plain burnout, and lack of opportunities for career growth are nothing new. While employees in different areas are no strangers to any of these, many of them have recently found a way to rebel.

Quiet quitting! This term refers to workers who deliberately choose to do tasks strictly within their job description to avoid working long hours. Not more, not less. Quiet quitting is said to help an employee deal with burnout, alleviate long-term stress, or give them space while looking for another job.

Since there are still many mixed opinions about quiet quitting, it’s best to listen to what people who have been in those situations or have practiced quiet quitting have to say. “What are your thoughts on ‘Quiet quitting’ / ‘Acting your Wage’?” someone asked on Ask Reddit.

Below we wrapped up some of the most interesting stories and honest replies, so scroll down to find what they have to say!

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) Quiet quitting was coined by corporate to make it sound bad and put employees who do it in a bad light.

Simply put, it means doing exactly what you agreed to and what you are paid for.

This is not quitting by any dictionary I am familiar with. This is plain and simple doing your job.

Corporate 'culture' has it you have to work more than you agreed to, more than your contracted hours, more than you are paid for, to impress the employer, to "show you care" and other b******t like that. People are gradually waking up to the realisation that this is all unacceptable.

If we flip this on its head, why doesn't the company pay me more than we agreed? Or why doesn't it cut an hour or two off my day's shift? I'm sure any corporate linguist could find a variety of reasons to respond to that, and those are the exact reasons why the employee should not work past their hours and pay.

So no. 'Quiet quitting' doesn't exist, purely because it has nothing to do with quitting.

This should be at the top. Perfectly rational reasons to quit doing extra, quit going above and beyond for a company that won't do the same for you. They give you a set rate for a set job, anything extra should pay extra.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) Just today I decided to do this. I get here 2 hours early to make sure everything is straight so that I can give my boss any updates needed from the night crew. I am supposed to have a 30 min unpaid lunch, I usually work through this. I will also stay later than anyone else just to cover for my bosses so they can go home at their normal time. I am hourly and get overtime so it worked out. I am supposed to only create the training material and make sure everyone is highly trained. This is a industrial environment so we take it seriously. It also causes me to have to come in on my days off sometimes to meet with trainees. I also deal with contractors which is something that no other person in my role has to do. This causes me to some days work from 5 am to 10 pm (I did this Monday and Tuesday this week already) as I am not allowed to work over 16 hours a day. I have never complained as the money was good.

Today my department is told all overtime has to be approved daily. I asked if this included me and it does. Because certain individuals have been caught not working while they are on overtime, the entire department has been punished. I asked if I could go ahead and get my stuff approved as I get up and leave my house around 4:30am and I don't want to have to call him that early. I was told he sees no benefit of me coming in that early or staying that late.

So I will only work my 8 hours, and I am cutting my phone off during my lunch break. I will not cover for them again nor will I work late to help get us back running. I have turned over the contractor paperwork and will no longer be handling it. Seeing as all that I do is not beneficial, it should not cause us any disruptions.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) The phrase “you get what you pay for” applies to employers too. They shouldn’t expect to get premium production at a discount.

useyourownnamebit , Bidvine Report

To find out what an expert has to say about quiet quitting, Bored Panda reached out to Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, CEO of the hybrid work consultancy Disaster Avoidance Experts, and best-selling author of Leading Hybrid and Remote Teams: A Manual on Benchmarking to Best Practices for Competitive Advantage (Intentional Insights, 2021).

Dr. Tsipursky explained that the term “quiet quitting” emerged in March 2022, and refers to doing the bare minimal tasks of your job description well enough that you don’t get fired.

“The concept quickly went viral on TikTok. Yet it only started to gain traction as an issue of concern among business leaders when government data on productivity released in August 2022 showed a sharp and unexpected drop in Q1 and Q2 of 2022,” he said.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) I think the pandemic really reset people's priorities. A lot of people were working from home or unemployed, and spent time with their families, or relaxing, or on self improvement. After a couple years of that, we all realized that maybe working those extra hours every day isn't that important. Their jobs kept going on, even though they were putting less effort into them.

I've noticed a big change at my office. If I stay until 5:30, there's only a couple cars left in the parking lot. It used to be busy there until 6 or 7 most days! And the place is pretty empty on Fridays, everyone is "working from home".

People seem to value their personal time a lot more, and I think it's a good thing. Work to live, don't live to work!

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) I’ve been doing this for years lol. Just common sense to me. I do what I get paid to do. I do my hours, no more no less. If I have to work overtime I’m claiming every single millisecond of it. It’s a job. Not my life

Had a situation once where someone called in sick and no one could come in to replace them. Which is not the end of the world. Had to stay 30 minutes passed my scheduled time to ensure everything was done, so I put that on my timesheet. When I came in the next day I saw someone scratched out my 30 minutes extra and put in my normal finish time. Obviously that pissed me off so I went to the boss and asked what the f**k was this. They said they don’t pay overtime and other s**t.

So I said well here’s what’s gonna happen. Either you pay me for the extra time or I’ll go straight to the department of labour and file a complaint. Don’t think they expected a 20 year old (at the time) to stick up for themselves.

publicworker69 , Priscilla Du Preez Report

Moreover, “soon after that worrisome datapoint in August, Gallup released a survey in early September indicating that as many as half of all Americans may be quiet quitters, further exacerbating business leadership concerns about this problem.”

So what explains the drop in productivity associated with quiet quitting? Dr. Tsipursky quotes Ben Wigert, director of research and strategy for workplace management at Gallup, who argues that “forcing employees to come to the office under the threat of discipline leads to disengagement, fear, and distrust.”

Dr. Tsipursky continued: “Indeed, Gallup found that if people are required to come to the office for more time than they prefer, ‘employees experience significantly lower engagement, significantly lower well-being, significantly higher intent to leave [and] significantly higher levels of burnout.’”

By contrast, employees feel gratitude to companies that give them more flexibility and show trust, Dr. Tsipursky argues. “As one such employee said, ‘if my company is going to come in and give me this flexibility, then I’m going to be the first to give them 100%.’ Indeed, research by Stanford University even before the pandemic found that workers who spent 4 days a week working remotely were 9% more engaged than in-office staff. Gallup finds that ‘the optimal engagement boost occurs when employees spend 60% to 80% of their time—or three to four days in a five-day workweek—working off-site.’”

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) This whole concept is completely absurd to me. I do realize that in the US you are probably expected to work harder than what you're contractually required to do but for instance here in the Nordic countries most people have always "acted their wage." We don't live to work, we do our job and go home to live our lives.

I am not sure what you write about the Nordics are 100% correct. The "act your wage" philosophy is relative new even in the Nordic countries. When I started working in to 80s, this was not a common notion. So, it is a bit dependent on what you mean by "always". Also, there has been, and probably is, a difference between the countries. To my experience, for example, the "Yes, Sir!" attitude seems to be more usual in Sweden than in Norway and Denmark. I have been working with and FOR this "work to live, don't live to work" philosophy during all my career, and I have met a lot of resistance against it. I am very pleased to see that this philosophy are now becoming more and more commonplace.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) I resent the term "quiet quitting", as a person who is protective of their time outside office hours. This doesn't make me a bad employee, it makes me a better one. I'm very good at my job, and am able to do it better than some in fewer hours, and I don't suffer from burn out because I make sure I get time to switch off. Measure my performance on the work I do, not the time I'm available.

This term really is corporations responding to the mass realisation that they can't bully and trick 1 person into doing 2 people's jobs any more.

I thought "quiet firing" was the opposite. They start reducing your work/hours. You don't get invited to meetings. You don't get included in work conversations. It's almost like getting shunned. Next thing you know, you get dinged for "not producing value", get written up or put on a PIP, and generally you realize you're getting slowly forced out.

Moreover, the Integrated Benefits Institute found in an October 2022 survey that employees who work remotely or in a hybrid environment reported being more satisfied (20.7%) and more highly engaged (50.8%).

Dr. Tsipursky also mentioned this June 2022 Citrix survey which found that 56% of fully remote workers feel engaged, but only 51% of in-office employees do so. “The evidence is backed up by a CNBC survey from June 2022, which found that 52% of fully remote workers say they are very satisfied with their jobs, compared with 47% of workers working full-time in the office.”

Some of us just want to put in their 40 hours and go home, and as long as I can pay my bills I don't need a promotion. So i'm not putting in extra hours and doing extra tasks that aren't in my job description. The favor some people are trying to gain from employers is for future promotions or perks. I have no interest in those perks. I can turn down that stuff because I don't work for free. Clock in at 9 clock out at 4:59 having completed all my assigned work whistling as I skip out the door. If they're going to pay me the bare minimum that they can get away with, this is the effort they get.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) I work in software so salary is the main cost to my employer. They obviously want to pay me as little as possible for as much output as possible which they can then resell for profit.

If I bust my balls to get features out as quickly as I possibly can then there is simply more work after that. If I am lucky I will get a "well done" in a company meeting and if I really fight my case I might get a raise. The only way to get market rates is to get another job offer and then threaten to leave.

The sales team get a bonus when they close a deal but the devs get f**k all when they deliver a massive client project. There is no incentive to deliver more than the minimal expectation so why should I give away my time and skill for free?

When Dr. Tsipursky shows this data to his consulting clients, they often ask him what they can do to address this problem. “First of all, I remind them of a joke from the famous comedian Henny Youngman: ‘The patient says, ‘Doctor, it hurts when I do this.’ The doctor says, ‘Then don't do that!’’’

According to him, the best approach for the future of work is a flexible team-led approach, where team leads make the call on work arrangements that serve the needs of their team. “Team leads know best what their teams need, including how to maximize productivity, engagement, and collaboration.”

hen asked what are the main signs of "quiet quitting," Dr. Tsipursky mentioned decreased productivity and engagement. “That means employees just doing the bare minimum, and not putting in extra work even when the company or their team needs them to do so, as well as not socially engaging with their colleagues outside of work hours,” he explained.

According to Dr. Tsipursky, it’s valuable to help staff address burnout as part of the return to office, such as by providing mental health benefits. “Burnout contributes to quiet quitting, and we see a clear increase in burnout during the drive to return employees to the office.”

Meanwhile, a Future Forum survey found that burnout increased from 37% in May 2022 to 43% in August 2022. In a late 2022 Gallup survey, 71% of respondents said that compared to in-office work, hybrid work improves work-life balance and 58% reported less burnout.

“When asked about burnout among workers who could work fully remotely, those who were fully office-centric had rates of burnout at 35% and engagement at 30%. For remote workers, the percentage for burnout was 27% and engagement was 37%, further demonstrating how the drive to return to office leads to burnout and quiet quitting,” Dr. Tsipursky concluded.

Employees Stop Going Above And Beyond At Work And Join The "Quiet Quitting" Trend, Here's What People Have To Say About It (30 Answers) I just decided to do this yesterday and I am so much more relaxed.

Work has gone crazy for me recently. I have developed the habit over my career of working my butt off to accomplish as much as humanly possible. It took 3-4 people to replace me at my last job.

The workload here has skyrocketed. My personal life is miserable and I'm just so stressed over everything.

I made the conscious decision to just do what I can to get my work done, and be ok with it if not everything gets done. I'm the only one setting this unrealistic standard for myself. I don't have to kill myself to do it....and I'm starting to relax and feel just a bit better.

Edit: I grew up and entered the working world under the understanding that if worked hard I would be rewarded. And looking back on everything, that has never actually happened. The only thing that did happen was I was taken advantage of. I had people in my early employment years try to convince me to do their work for them on the side. I was denied raises and underpaid. At my last job I was 100% convinced I was being underpaid. I gave them advanced notice I had received an offer I was taking seriously. I handed in my two weeks notice and they stonewalled me up until the last day. Then the VP pulled me into his office, told me they couldn't lose me and offered me a massive raise.

I asked about the problems with the company that lead me to quit that I knew they knew about and asked them why they hadn't fixed any of it yet. Didn't get a good answer. So I told them no and left.

Proudest day of my career so far. I'd always been so nervous about authority but just knowing they needed me and I didn't need them gave me such a confidence boost it was amazing.
