How to address the ‘quiet quitter phenomenon’? Managing people out of a company through performance improvement programs can be one avenue. Ford wants to streamline its process—giving employees the option to simply leave if they do not want to endure the stress of a highly monitored 4-6-week improvement program. It’s tricky because high performers may be the ones most tempted to take the money and leave, while less desirable workers may prefer collecting their monthly paycheck rather than risk the time and effort to find a more fulfilling job. There’s no question that the quiet quitter trend can affect workforce morale and productivity.
