Although the phenomenon is already well established on the other side of the Atlantic, the “quiet exit” or “silent resignation” seems to be gaining more followers in France. Scrupulously following a schedule, no longer answering e-mails during non-working hours, no longer taking on responsibilities, additional tasks, or even no longer “helping” colleagues… many of those today choose to do the “bare minimum” at work.
Adrienne Schemama, head of Talent.com, a platform that publishes almost 4 million job offers every month, considers it “a consequence of what we have experienced for two years, with a sense of frustration and, above all, the fear of burnout. . Some then decide not to retire, but to slow down to keep their sanity. »
Quietly firing is also a way to demand “more respect for employees,” Lauren explains in a TikTok video. This other “philosophy” of work is mainly carried by the younger generations. “Generation Z is now much more attentive to working conditions and welfare. They no longer agree to work as they please and at any price,” confirms Adrien Schemama, who observed this behavior of young workers.
