In this article, We’re going to cover the top 3 hot topics that happen in HR in 2022. Take a look!
Number 1. Quiet Quitting
Definitely a hot hot hot hot topic this year was Quiet Quitting.
How do you deal with a great team member who is unhappy, burned out, and dissatisfied? It doesn’t take long for them to leave.
Since professionals are being asked to perform additional tasks and responsibilities without receiving adequate compensation or support, our executive recruiters see quite quitting more than ever before.
Quiet quitting differs from the Great Resignation in the following ways:
The Great Resignation: What Is It?
Post-pandemic work environments have carried over what was established during the pandemic.
Employees quitting has been an enormous challenge for employers. There is a phenomenon known as the Great Resignation. More than 47 million people resigned from their jobs in 2021 for a variety of reasons, according to statistics.
Approximately 40% of U.S. employees want to quit their jobs, according to another survey.

During the pandemic, this sudden trend of workers leaving their jobs peaked. The trend doesn’t seem to be dying down any time soon. There is still a desire among employees for fulfilling careers, fair compensation, and a healthy working environment.
As they prioritize their physical, mental, and financial well-being over what their current organization has to offer, they switch jobs or embrace temporary unemployment.
Organizations across the country are experiencing worker shortages, decreased productivity, and unfulfilled goals due to the ongoing trend of resigning from jobs.
Quiet Quitting: What Is It?
In addition to the Great Resignation, employers now need to be on the lookout for the new trend of quiet resignations. As people put up explainer videos on TikTok and Twitter, the term gained popularity as people shared how to step back from the hustle culture without actually resigning.
A quiet resignation is generally adopted by employees who aren’t getting what they need from their jobs. In essence, they disengage from nonessential tasks and activities, giving the bare minimum to the organization.
The employees who practice quiet quitting aren’t bad at what they do. In other words, they don’t want to go beyond what’s expected of them or go above and beyond what’s required of them. Several factors can contribute to this, including poor company policies, unfulfilling tasks, a lack of professional development, burnout, and unfair compensation.
Quiet quitting, for instance, would result in an employee no longer participating in company events or volunteering. As usual, they’ll accomplish their tasks without making any extra effort to take on additional tasks.
Number 2. Creating a Culture of Gratitude
What is Gratitude and Why is it Important?
This 2022 we’ve been listening about Culture of Gratitude and how it is important and how it can affect your day. Not to mention that it has been linked to higher levels of well-being, happiness, and optimism.
Gratitude is an attitude of thankfulness or appreciation for what one has. It’s about being appreciative and having an optimistic outlook on life.
Practicing gratitude has been proven to make you happier, more optimistic, and more satisfied with your life.
How to Cultivate a Culture of Gratitude in Your Life and Workplace
- Be thankful about what you currently have
It can be from small things like not just to say “thank you” but be more detailed. For example for that person that helped you lifting a heavy bag say – thank you for helping me- that way you’re paying more attentions in details that you’re thankful of.
In dark days it always helps to be thankful for some stuff that sometimes we take for granted like: living in a certain place, having a certain thing. It’s on the little things.
- Talk to people that don’t have the same as you
Volunteering and companies who participate in volunteering in orphanages, asylums and other places are good so people can interact with other people and get the opportunity to see how others see at the world. Who may not have the same as you have.
- Look for opportunities to be generous
If you constantly feel like you don’t have enough or that you lack this or that, try the experiment of investing your resources in someone else. It can be money, it can be something that you have and the other needs, it can be time; It doesn’t matter what it is, the point is that instead of taking it to serve yourself, take what you have and give it to another.
Number 3. Remote Job / Hybrid / Office
From Elon Musk that forced twitter employees to go back to the office and other enterprises that changed their schedule to hybrid or 100% remote. This was a big topic to talk about this year.
With plenty of people talking about how much they’d hate or love the remote job.
Remote workers use digital tools to do more than complete projects, but as the only way to communicate with their teams.
The rise of digital tools like email, smartphones and Zoom in the last 30 years coupled with the mass adoption of remote work after Covid-19 has made the remote model a logically sound means of working that got more importance and pros and cons in 2022.
