“Quiet Firing” and “Quiet Quitting”

October 28, 2022

At Letsmeet, we believe team culture is the most important factor to being a successful business. We believe that our culture is an incredible strategic advantage and an invaluable asset.

Gilles Raymond, CEO and founder of Letsmeet, contributed on the making of an article published by Workest about Quiet Firing and Quiet Quitting. This were his thoughts on it: 

"Employees may be performing their jobs 100% correctly with a high level of commitment but, at the same time, may not have the means or the will to go beyond what the job demands. Therefore, they are prone to quietly quitting. He added, however, that while quiet quitting may not be the best way to manage a career, it still can be a respectful way to contribute to a company as long as work expectations for both employers and workers are clear".

In case you're not familiar with these concepts, here are the definitions that the people at Workest provided on their article.


“Quiet Firing” occurs when employers use subtle tactics to get unwanted employees to leave the company instead of firing them outright. The goal is to make work so unbearable and the work environment so toxic that these employees will eventually leave on their own.


Employees who engage in “Quiet Quitting” choose to cut back on the amount of work they do. But unlike managers who simply want an employee to quit, the team members have different reasons for cutting back their work.
