Discussing "quiet quitting"

Adrienne Schleigh and Fernan Cepero on "Connections."
Emmarae Stein
Adrienne Schleigh and Fernan Cepero appear on "Connections with Evan Dawson" on Thursday, September 22, 2022.

Have you heard about "quiet quitting"? The short definition of quiet quitting is doing the baseline requirement of your job, never taking any work home, and entirely separating work from your personal life. In that sense, it's not quitting at all, and for many older Americans, the term is confusing. But younger workers say it's a cultural shift. They want more work-life balance and they're not willing to make work their identities.

Our guests are human resources professionals who have different takes on the debate. Our guests:

  • Fernan Cepero, senior human resources business partner
  • Adrienne Schleigh, senior director for HR strategic placements at HR Works
  • Kevyn Rustici, area vice president of strategic human capital counseling at Gallagher
