Did you know that leaders are much more likely to engage in quiet quitting than their actual workers?
They are showing signs of fatigue without any kind of recognition or remuneration for what they’ve done to lead others.
How does this impact the future of work? And what can the leaders of leaders do to help mitigate quiet quitting?
In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Alexander Alonso, the Chief Knowledge Officer for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), who shares some valuable insights into reinventing the future of work.
The good news? You don’t have to be an HR leader to get something out of our discussion.
We talked about what research shows has changed over the last couple of years in regards to how employees view the workplace, and what they’re looking for employers to provide them that differs from the past.
I also learned several new things in our discussion, including what it means to “Get Netflixed”, what the acronym GESHWI means – and how we’ll all be using it – and the price that some people are willing to pay for being petty at work, as well as the benefits of learning how to discuss taboo subjects in the workplace.
Topics Discussed In This Episode:
- The effects of focusing proactively on mental wellness in the workplace.
- Why leaders are more likely to engage in “quiet quitting” than those who work for them.
- What employees are looking to employers to provide them today, that differs from the past.
- What GESHWI means, and how it correlates to EBITDA.
- What it means to “Get Netflixed”, and why you don’t want that for your company.
