power skills noun [plural]
UK /ˈpaʊə ˌskɪlz/ US /ˈpaʊ.ɚ ˌskɪlz/
a set of abilities that are essential for doing your job well but are not specific to any one job
Those who have strong communication, organisational and interpersonal skills find they can adapt quickly to new roles and flourish in busy workplaces. For too long these qualities have been known as soft skills, but increasingly voices in the recruitment sphere are referring to them as power skills because of the impact they have on the workplace.

resenteeism noun [U]
UK /re.zənˈtiː.ɪ.zᵊm/ US /re.zənˈtiː.ɪ.zᵊm/
staying in a job that makes you very unhappy because it provides security or you have no other job to go to
Unlike quiet quitting, where workers refuse to take on extra tasks, workers with resenteeism can’t help but have a moody, negative attitude. As Jason Lalljee notes, “What makes resenteeism different from normal 9-to-5 blues, in theory, is that you’re more open with your dissatisfaction at work.” I believe that if leaders don’t take action, resenteeism can spread among staff members, sabotaging team morale.

shift shock noun [C]
UK /ˈʃɪft ˌʃɒk/ US /ˈʃɪft ˌʃɑːk/
a feeling of surprise and disappointment when you start a new job and discover that it, or the company, is not as good as you expected
Shift shock can come as a result of different working hours to the ones you thought you would have (perhaps you were told in your interview you’d “probably” be working 9-5, Monday to Friday, but were advised to be flexible to meet business needs… then you got started and learned you’d be working every weekend), having unexpected responsibilities on your to-do list or discovering that a company’s culture isn’t as lovely as it appeared.
