Happier Employees: Revisiting Quiet Quitting and Getting Back to Mentoring. Julie Kantor, CEO, TwoMentor.com Featured in Recent CNBC Article

Julie Silard Kantor, CEO of TwoMentor.com was featured in a CNBC article about how employers are working to make their employees happier by understanding and paying attention to TikTok trends. “I’m super thankful to CNBC for asking me how to combat the growing issues surrounding workplace retention and quiet quitting,” states Julie.

The Quiet Quitting phenomenon sparks conversations about relationships within the workplace. It isn’t the same as quitting a job completely but is finding work/life balance by no longer putting in extra effort beyond a job’s requirements.

According to GQ Magazine, people use ‘quiet quitting’ to deal with burnout. Many Gen Z workers feel overwhelmed and approximately 54% of them are thinking about leaving their job.

It was wrongly assumed that working from home would reduce burnout by having more time for family and hobbies. Zoom was said to have ‘saved the day’ by allowing professionals to work remotely. Research shows that productivity went up significantly, but mental health and wellbeing plummeted. Many struggle with their mental health; 80% of young workers are depressed, anxious and feel disappointed.

Employees miss ‘water cooler’ chats that fostered belonging and trust according to a survey by Pew Research Center. Employees report low pay, little chance to grow, disrespect/disappointment by a companies’ handling of COVID-19b and increased social isolation cause them to ‘quiet quit.’

Organizations are Lowering the Expenses Associated with Staff Turnover by Increasing Mentoring

Many leaders who speak about their professional trajectory or success, refer to having at least one mentor. According to Julie, “at every conference I attended in the past 24 months, the leading piece of advice to young professionals was ‘get a mentor or sponsor’ who can champion you behind closed doors.”

Enhancing employee engagement and tackling problems like ‘quiet quitting’ and disengagement is possible by revisiting the apple-pie but complex world of mentoring initiatives. Companies have successfully increased employee dedication by developing a strong mentoring culture.

Mentoring helps to revitalize the energy of a workforce and fosters an environment that is happy and productive, especially important now.

“Research indicates that mentorship benefits both individuals and companies. A CNBC and SurveyMonkey study found that 89% of employees with mentors feel valued by their colleagues, compared to 75% without mentors.” Source: MentorcliQ
