The Problem with Quiet Quitting

Quiet quitting is when employees disengage from their work and organization without making their dissatisfaction known. These individuals may continue to show up and complete their tasks, but they need more enthusiasm, motivation, and commitment. 

Quiet quitters often fly under the radar, making it challenging for managers to identify and address their concerns before they decide to leave.

This impacts important areas of healthcare such as safety, patient experience, and voluntary turnover of not only the disengaged employees but other employees on the team as well. It may even put significant risk on global healthcare according to the National Institute for Health.
