It's estimated that nearly 70% of employees are "quietly quitting" their jobs – meaning they're not officially resigning, but they're disengaged and actively looking for new opportunities. And while it's easy to chalk this up to "the way things are" in today's job market, the truth is that quiet quitting can have a major impact on your company's bottom line.
So what can companies do about quiet quitting?
For starters, it's important to understand that traditional performance reviews are no longer enough. In today's fast-paced, constantly-connected world, employees expect – and need – more frequent feedback in order to feel engaged and valued.
Organizational network analysis (ONA) can be a powerful tool in addressing quiet quitting. ONA enables you to see, in real time, how employees are interacting with each other and with different parts of the organization. This information can help you to identify the root cause of why people are quietly quitting, and to take steps to address it.
There are a number of benefits to using ONA to combat quiet quitting:
ONA can help you to identify patterns of behavior that may be indicative of disengagement. For example, you may see that an employee who used to be highly engaged in their work has started to withdraw from social interactions, or that they're no longer participating in company-wide initiatives.
ONA can also help you to identify the people who are most likely to be impacted by – and to influence – an employee's decision to quit. This information can be used to target interventions and to build more engaged and supportive teams.
ONA can provide insight into the organization as a whole, and how different employees and departments are connected. This information can be used to create a more cohesive and effective organization, and to address any areas of the company that may be causing employees to feel disengaged.
While ONA is not a silver bullet, it is a powerful tool that can help companies to address the issue of quiet quitting. When used in conjunction with other engagement strategies, it can help to create a more positive and productive workplace.
