Amazon offers workers $5,000 to quit

Recommended Posts

He describes how the company will pay Amazon's warehouse workers up to $5,000 to quit their jobs.

The intent of the program is to ensure that Amazon retains only people who really, really want to work at Amazon.

"The second program is called Pay to Quit. It was invented by the clever people at Zappos, and the Amazon fulfillment centers have been iterating on it. Pay to Quit is pretty simple. Once a year, we offer to pay our associates to quit. The first year the offer is made, it’s for $2,000. Then it goes up one thousand dollars a year until it reaches $5,000. The headline on the offer is 'Please Don’t Take This Offer.' We hope they don’t take the offer; we want them to stay. Why do we make this offer? The goal is to encourage folks to take a moment and think about what they really want. In the long-run, an employee staying somewhere they don’t want to be isn’t healthy for the employee or the company."

This is actually pretty good. I also wish companies would realize that investing in more paid time off and benefits would equal better motivation and results from employees, especially over the long run. When companies start stiffing employees, the employees themselves start getting a sour mood and that in turn makes a poor work environment. But then again, there are certain people that have lower standards and work for peanuts, so I guess the company looks for those people too.
