Pre-Quitting Behaviours


Definition: Pre-Quitting Behaviours are behavioural signs employees are showing before they quit the organization. They are signs of potential attrition.
If managers or co-workers detect these signs on time, they might stop a valuable employee from "putting in the papers"?

- Putting in lesser efforts and displaying lower levels of motivation.
