Culture Fit Has NO Place In A Progressive Workplace: “Quiet Quitting” Is A Symptom Of A Toxic Work Culture
Can we acknowledge how culture fit in the workplace has more to do with how similar individuals are personality wise than how they are driven by the workplace's mission? How can we move towards a progressive workplace that promotes Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) when culture fit becomes a barrier for culture additions in the hiring process and workplace?
I have not witnessed tremendous growth in workplaces where individuals are more similar than different. I presume that's why more employers are promoting DEI practices. Anyway, it's time that we consider "Quiet Quitting" as a symptom of a toxic work culture and move towards a progressive workplace that truly promotes Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
"Quiet Quitting" has become a term used by both employers and their employees to describe their dissatisfaction with each other. "Quiet Quitting" is not going above and beyond in one's current role. Tasks are still getting done, but not to one's detriment. There's an unwritten rule that one should go above and beyond in their role. However, employees are no longer going above and beyond in their roles when they're constantly being overworked, undervalued, underpaid, etc. Employers need to prioritize their employee's well-being because it's greatly tied to not only the success of their company, but its growth!
It's time that employers do their due diligence to create a partnership with their employees that's built on transparency, constructive feedback, and growth for everyone in the workplace.
