What is Quiet Quitting and What to Do About it

Updated: Nov 4, 2022

Never mind the Great Resignation. Is “Quiet Quitting” the next talent challenge?

A recent Wall Street Journal article states that not taking your job seriously has a new name: Quiet Quitting.


Employees becoming disengaged and doing the bare minimum is nothing new in the business world. What may be new and important is how low the employee engagement rate is for Gen Z and younger millennials.

According to a recent Gallup poll, employee engagement for all generations is declining. But Gen Z ranked last for employee engagement. This should not be construed as a negative connotation of the generation. Instead, while seasoned leaders and employees have also struggled to regain balance after COVID, we need to recognize that our newest members of the workforce may have been enduring with less coping tools, opportunities, and experience to weather the storm.

Patriot HR Solutions has continued to grow at an exponential rate and has doubled the number of employees in the past seven years. As a human resources outsourcing, payroll, and benefits service provider with its headquarters in Burtonsville, Maryland, the company made nearly $620 million in revenue last year.
