Hey there! Welcome to this episode of Productively Yours where we talk about “Quiet Quitting” yet again. Recently, we’ve been exploring the volatile factors that are currently influencing the mindset shift when it comes to millennial careers. On that account, our Podcast curations have recently shifted to episodes revolving around how people are reacting to this term. We’ve come across a few that we totally loved and yes, a few reflect views conflicting with ours. Nevertheless, each episode is full of takeaways on how “quiet quitting” has created a breakthrough impact. And needless to say, it has compelled so many to speak out about it.
Before we list the podcasts below, let me give you a brief on our clash of opinions. The podcasts are ranked 1 to 5, depending on how much we could connect with the content. Podcasts 4 and 5 (The JC Ruiz Podcast and I Cry at Work) were two conflicting views which we don’t agree with. However, we had fun listening to the opposing views as well. Fair warning, they felt more like a rant rather than an informative episode. Have fun with your podcast session, here we go!

#4: The JC Ruiz Podcast
Episode: Quiet Quitting (Sep 09, 2022)
Nobody’s “quiet quitting.” We’re quitting the bulls*it. We’re quitting the drama. Like I said, we’re paid enough to do the bare minimum. If the job states that these are our responsibilities – these are our daily chores and tasks – and we do them, we’re not quiet quitting.The JC Ruiz Podcast
#5: I Cry at Work
Episode: Quiet Quitting (Aug 26, 2022)
How many times have older generations told the younger generations this piece of advice. Work to live, don’t live to work. Sounds like a dream, isn’t it. Well, I have good news for these older generations – we actually took that advice!I Cry at Work
