Quiet quitting. It’s a buzzy topic in the workplace and on social media, sparked by a viral TikTok video earlier this summer. So what does it mean?
For some workers, it’s simply doing what’s in your job description and nothing more. For others, it’s about setting boundaries and focusing on work-life balance.

We talk to Robyn Garrett, CEO of the leadership company Beamably, and Jhanee Carter, CEO and founder of the HR Queen, about quiet quitting and the impact it’s having on workers and the workplace.
