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"?
Gardner, Iddekinge and Hom mentioned 13 frequent PQBs; the first 5 being:
- Putting in lesser efforts and displaying lower levels of motivation.
- Doing just the minimum amount of work required, more frequently.
- Showing lower work productivity than usual.
- Lesser inclination towards being a team player.
- Displaying a negative change in their attitude.
