We’ve all heard of quiet quitting, it’s become a bit of a buzz word recently, but what does it actually mean?
Quiet quitters are defined as ‘Not Engaged’. They are seat fillers and clock watchers, who put in the minimum effort required.
Ironically, although they are minimally productive, they are more likely to be stressed and burnt out than engaged employees because they feel lost and disconnected from their workplace.
Gallup’s latest State of the Global workplace: 2023 Report showed that 67% of Australian’s are Quiet Quitting, 8% higher than the global average.
Here’s the thing though –
Quiet quitters are your low-hanging fruit for productivity gains.
They are ready to be inspired and motivated…. if they are coached the right way.
The global average of engaged employees is a mere 23%. In best practice organisations – those who invest in their managers to create a more engaged workforce – a whopping 72% are engaged!
Here’s what that difference looks like in numbers between the top and bottom quartile businesses: (based on analysis of Gallups Q12 Engagement Surveys)
- 81% in absenteeism
- 58% in patient safety incidents (mortality and falls)
- 18% in turnover for high-turnover organisations
- 43% in turnover for low-turnover organisations
- 28% in shrinkage (theft)
- 64% in safety incidents (accidents)
- 41% in quality (defects)
- 10% in customer loyalty/engagement
- 18% in productivity (sales)
- 23% in profitability
Those are some BIG differences.
