57% of 'quiet quitters' report improved work-life balance: survey

Among those identifying as "quiet quitters," 57 percent overall — and 65 percent of working parents with children younger than 18 — say their work-life balance has improved, LendingTree, an online lending marketplace, finds.  

The findings are from a survey of 2,033 U.S. consumers ages 18 to 76 on Oct. 18. LendingTree commissioned Qualtrics to conduct the survey, which examines people's experiences with "quiet quitting." The term has been widely referred to in recent months and, as LendingTree defines it, is "where employees refuse to go above the bare minimum without additional pay."

Four other findings:

1. More than half of "quiet quitters" (56 percent) say they are searching for new roles. That compares to 28 percent among people who don't identify as "quiet quitters."

2. Thirty-six percent of "quiet quitters" report working more than their required hours.

3. Forty-two percent of "quiet quitters" say they don't use all their paid time off.

4. Forty percent of "quiet quitters" report being more engaged at work than in the past.
