For the learning and engagement platform Kahoot! we conducted a survey from August 18 to September 12, 2022. The 1635 respondents were U.S. workers employed in firms with 250+ employees who gave us a better understanding of the challenges they have been encountering in the workplace, and in particular shining a light on the growing trend of quiet constraint. This term is attributed to the fact that more than half (58%) of workers hold valuable knowledge that could benefit/help their co-workers that they haven’t yet shared. The reasons for this withheld information vary in both their sources and reasons, with, 26% of respondents saying they were never asked and 23% saying their employer doesn’t provide them a channel or means to do so. In addition, 26% said they feel like their talent and self-expression is stifled at work. While quiet quitting has become a very talked about occurrence, employers should be watching out for quiet constraint in the workplace.
