An interesting post on the The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) blog concerning the prominent subject of quiet quitting. The authors suggest reasons for why people may engage in this work behaviour along with potential ways to change employees' minds about work.
From an agile working perspective, offering working-time autonomy is pivotal for maintaining a happy and productive workforce as individuals inherently desire choice and resist coercion, valuing a balance between work and personal life. While flexibility is key, it does not negate the need for some structured periods where staff operate collaboratively, whether for brainstorming or team-building activities. Implementing a system that respects various needs for work-life balance helps in preventing dissatisfaction and potential quiet quitting among employees.
