Building Better Workplaces: How to Reverse Quiet Quitting & Reenergize Engagement

Reenergize engagement and combat “Quiet Quitting” in your organization by adopting best practices from top-rated workplaces. Gallup’s research suggests that at least 50% of the US workforce falls into the category of Quiet Quitters, with only one-third of workers considering themselves engaged. These employees may be present physically, but are not fully invested or performing at their highest level. Without intervention, absenteeism, healthcare costs, turnover, and subpar outcomes will increase. How can your organization break this cycle and move towards greater resilience and success? Vivian offers solutions.

Attendees will:

  • Reign in potential causes of Quiet Quitting within their organization.
  • Better manage the effects of ongoing change, operational challenges, and daily disruptions.
  • Apply approaches used by the best places to work to reenergize engagement.
