The topics covered in this presentation will include:
· What “quiet quitting” is and why it’s happening;
· The business and legal risks that quiet quitting presents to employers;
· How employers can assess whether quiet quitting is an issue in their workplace;
· Methods employers can use to help prevent or respond to quiet quieting in their workplace;
