Trend #4 - Forget 'Quiet Quitting', introducing ‘Quit-Tok'

Have you heard of ‘Quit-Tok’ This piece in the FT explains what it is and outlines why young workers are refusing to leave their job quietly, not one to miss if you’re an employer of a Gen Z team.

“Quit-Tok” videos aim to take what would usually be a private chat in a side room with managers and make it as public as possible. Gen Z workers in particular are posting videos of online calls in which they resign or are made redundant on social media sites such as TikTok as they wage a campaign of workplace transparency. Tech workers and schoolteachers are the source of many of the videos but they have also been posted by blue-collar workers. The vast majority of the people behind them have been women.

Trend #5 - McKinsey cover how to hire well right now

High turnover, shrinking pipelines, inflation—the talent market remains in flux. Here’s what you should be doing differently. In this episode of McKinsey Talks Talent, talent experts Bonnie Dowling, Bryan Hancock, and Bill Schaninger talk with McKinsey Global Publishing’s Lucia Rahilly about the latest research on the Great Attrition and Great Attraction—and specifically, what leaders should be doing now to gain traction in a volatile talent landscape.

And there you have it - your monthly dose of insights into the evolving world of work.
