Deborah Jeffries | Vice President, HR AnswersDescription
A Gallup study alleges quiet quitters make up “more than half” of the U.S. workforce. The concept of quiet quitters is being labeled as an “epidemic” that is changing the workplace. But have you heard of quiet hiring, quiet firing, quiet promoting, quiet leading, or quiet thriving?
These terms are popping up on social media, professional journals, and now our everyday vocabulary. Are these terms just convenient for managers to express their thoughts? Have they been created by HR professionals? Where did they come from and what do they really mean?
This program will be a lively discussion where we will share:
- What do leaders need to know and how to address conditions to prevent the quiets from taking hold in your workplace
- What you can do to improve manager and employee relationships and grow engagement within your organization
- Discover ways to use purpose as a driver and increased communication as a tool for individuals and their work
- Answer your questions
