We have another new buzzword to add to our vocabularies! In similarity to other buzzwords, "Quiet Hiring" is becoming a top trend for 2023. In this newsletter we are breaking down what it is and how we can use it to our advantage.
REMEMBER QUIET QUITTING, IT'S NOW QUIET HIRING
"The term "quiet quitting" went viral last year, describing people who stay in their jobs but mentally take a step back -- for example, working the bare minimum and not making their job the center of their lives. Now in 2023, there is a new workplace trend on the horizon, called "quiet hiring."
The term -- a way to obtain new talent without hiring new employees -- was declared one of the nine workplace trends of the year by Gartner, a technological research and consulting firm. The trend has understandably caught people's attention as it comes amid continued recession fears and a wave of tech industry layoffs. Here is what to know." Learn more
QUIET HIRING WILL DOMINATE THE US IN 2023

There are also more immediate benefits to employees — quiet hiring doesn’t mean employees who volunteer for these kinds of assignments shouldn’t be compensated or rewarded in some way.
To capture the benefits of quiet hiring without risking attrition, organizations should expect to offer incentives, such as additional compensation, one-time bonuses, extra personal time off, flexible hours and working conditions." Learn More
