You're not dealing with "quiet quitters" correctly and it shows.
You’ve read all the headlines. More and more employees are reporting themselves as being “disengaged” or “actively disengaged” from their work. You’ve been greatly disturbed and frustrated by this concept. You work hard. You do what it takes to get the job done. You are a good employee. Why do other people feel entitled to being disengaged from their job?
If this resonates with you, I guarantee that you’re approaching this issue incorrectly. The kinds of people who “quietly quit” are NOT the kinds of people who respond well to being told to just “do more.”
For one reason or another, quiet quitters view their job as strictly transactional, and to do more than the bare minimum would not benefit them. So to demand that they do more would cause them to reflect on what they would get out of doing more. Odds are, they would say to themselves, “Whether I do extra or do the bare minimum, I get paid the same, so I’m going to do the minimum.”
The solution to disengagement is not punishment.
That will push the person further away and closer to a job board. The solution is engagement. You need to give your employees the tools they need for success and the incentives to be engaged.
