Consultancy firm Gartner has introduced the concept of "quiet hiring" as one of its workplace predictions for 2023. This strategy involves acquiring new skills within the organization without the need for external hiring. In essence, it includes upskilling existing employees, expanding their roles, or hiring temporary workers for specific tasks. While this approach can benefit both employees and the company—employees gain new skills and potentially a salary increase, and the company gains a more skilled workforce—experts warn that it could also be misused. There's a concern that quiet hiring might be used to cut costs without adequately rewarding employees or to assign more challenging tasks without appropriate compensation.
