Episode 84: Tackling the Trends of Quiet Quitting and Firing with Kris Lance

By Kelly Barner | September 28, 2022

There are always prevailing trends in talent management, but they seem to be higher profile in the wake of the pandemic. First was the Great Resignation, and now we’re all talking about (and looking for examples of) quiet quitting and quiet firing. 

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes back Kris Lance, Senior Director at Una, for a recurring monthly conversation about current news stories. Kris has experience in multiple industries and has his finger on the pulse of the trends and topics that procurement, sourcing, and supply chain professionals need to be aware of.


In this interview, Kris and Kelly talk about the trend of quiet quitting and quiet firing:

  • Whether they are really a new phenomenon or whether we are just more aware of the dynamics now
  • What companies and managers might do from a policy perspective to protect their teams and output from quiet quitters
  • How employees should handle situations where they or their co-workers are being quiet fired
  • The possibility that we’ve lost the ability to deal with tough issues head on, including personnel performance
