‘Bare Minimum Mondays’, a term similar to ‘quiet quitting’ refers to starting the work week on a slow note and doing just the minimum tasks required. This practice encourages employees to prioritize self-care and mental health than beginning the week on a stressful note.
Just like ‘Quiet quitting’, where employees silently retreat from their work after doing the base level of tasks to focus on their personal lives, Bare Minimum Mondays began as a trend to cope with the pressure of being productive at work every day.
In terms of productivity and effectiveness, there are varying opinions; some say Bare Minimum Mondays would help with a more productive work week ahead without putting pressure on the employees; however, others feel this is counterproductive and would not necessarily increase productivity.
Moreover, administering a Bare Minimum Monday trend would depend on several factors, such as the particular role one plays in the workplace, the tasks at hand, and whether there are deadlines tied to the tasks.
Overall, such workplace trends were created to combat the stress, burnout, and mental health effects of working in an exhausting environment with no regard for employee well-being. There have, however, been numerous opinions on the topic.
And as opinions vary between employees and employers, Real Research has launched this survey to find out the public opinion on the effectiveness of Bare Minimum Mondays and how likely it is for the trend to sustain in the long term.
