Why Do Managers Quiet Fire Employees?

Quietly firing? ...  What is this new term and how is it different from quiet quitting?

In brief, this term is used when a company manages and employee out of their role or the company. 

How do they do this? Well, the manager and possibly others create a less than ideal workplace by using certain tactics to keep you from fully enjoying your job or place of work. 

The plan is to get you to quit so they do not have to actually terminate you from your role or the company themselves.

What are your thoughts on quiet firing?
