Quiet Quitting means: Someone decides to do only exactly what is required at work, the minimum. Service by the book. Quiet Quitters continue to perform their duties but are not willing to do anything more. When the official working hours are over, they stop working and are unavailable to anyone until the next regular start of working hours. Quiet Quitting is neither full resignation nor full engagement, but something in between.
The goal of Quiet Quitting is to restore balance between work and other areas of life – work-life balance or life-domain balance.
Differentiation from “inner resignation”
Quiet Quitting is not the same as the phenomenon of "inner resignation". The resignation factor plays a more significant role in inner resignation, Quiet Quitting is less close to resignation.
