Quiet quitting, where employees do the bare minimum but don’t quit, has been making headlines lately and now the other side of that, quiet firing, is the topic of conversation.
Forbes points out that quiet firing sounds a lot like Constructive Termination (CT). The article points out that CT is a practice that’s been around for centuries, where a boss removes responsibilities, status, connection to others, and more, in an attempt to get the employee to quit. In this article, Forbes talks with HR professionals to get advice on what employees can do if quiet firing is happening to them.
Leslie Tarnacki, SVP of HR at WorkForce Software shares her recommendations for employees who may feel as though they are being quietly fired and she offers solutions. She suggests the employee meet with their manager or HR to discuss any concerns and bring a comprehensive list of how they provide value to their team. She also recommends creating a plan with a manager to outline expectations going forward.
