Quiet quitting, BIPOC emotional tax & workation hotspots

By August 26, 2022For Companies

Creating world-class content for Amply’s rapidly expanding global media network is just one way in which we enrich our partnerships. With so much activity in the jobs market right now, there is a lot of ground to cover.

As always, we tackle a range of diverse topics across our partner network. On our new publishing partner ALT A Review, we take a look at the emotional burden Black employees have to shoulder at work. “Quiet quitting” is the big workplace buzz right now thanks to TikTok (what else?), and we explore that in depth on Silicon Canals. Over on The Next Web, we’re looking at great places to jet to if a workation is in your horoscope for September.

You can check all that out below – it’s just a small edit of the content we produced this week – there is much more where that came from. If you’re a publisher, eager to find out how we can help you with tailored career and jobs content, or would like to explore partnering with us, email hello@jobbio.com.

Black workers pay an emotional tax at work

Are Black women paying a higher emotional price at work?

Black workers battle what is known as an “emotional tax”, as they seek to navigate their careers, writes Jobbio’s senior content manager Kirstie McDermott on our new partner, ALT A Review. While 89% of Black women and men want to engage in challenging and intellectually stimulating work, 45% of those who felt different based on gender and race or ethnicity had sleep problems, compared to 25% of those who did not feel different.

Additionally, 54% of those who said they felt different based on their gender and race or ethnicity felt that they had to be “on guard”, or consciously preparing to deal with potential discrimination by bracing for insults, avoiding social situations and places, or taking care with appearance to avoid bias.

Is ‘Quiet Quitting’ The New Workplace Scourge?

Boomers wanted money, Millennials wanted value and now it appears that Gen Z want a clear differentiation between work and home life and they are going to get it, in a trend being tagged as “quiet quitting” on TikTok, writes Jobbio contributor Aisling O’Toole on Silicon Canals .

So what is it? Quiet quitting is essentially doing the least amount of work possible in order to remain on the payroll, and the majority of workers engaging in the practice are Gen Z, many of whom started their careers just before or during the pandemic, and so have yet to experience the sense of engagement, value and team building that can come from working on the office floor.

Used up all your vacation already? Check out these 4 ‘workation’ hotspots

Heard about workations? Well, you have now: Basically, writes Jobbio contributor Pippa Hardy on The Next Web, you pack up your laptop case, jet off to a far-flung destination, and work remotely for a couple of days, weeks or even months.

This new trend is a direct byproduct of the pandemic. The rise of remote working, coupled with a growing hunger for international travel means that more and more employees are deciding to take multiple breaks per year and save their annual leave while doing so. Of course, there are a lot of things to consider before you book a workation. So, to help you to decide, she’s rounded up the four best places, which include Austin, Texas and Dublin.
